Lord, Aeck & Sargent Broadens Leadership Team

ATLANTA, Feb. 1, 2010 – Architecture, interiors, planning and preservation firm Lord, Aeck & Sargent today announced a broadening of the corporate leadership team at its 68-year-old professional practice. Its managing principal since 2000, Antonin Aeck, FAIA, has assumed the new role of board chair and will continue in active practice. Joseph Greco, AIA, a 19-year veteran of the firm and a principal since 2000, has assumed the new position of president while also leading the design of projects in collaboration with the firm’s design studio directors. This senior management collaboration will continue to be supported by Michael Stevenson, director of business services and CFO; Douglas Glasgow, AIA, director of information technology; and Cheryl Rosenbaum, director of operations.

Greco, an Atlanta native and graduate of Grady High School, earned his undergraduate degree in architecture from the Georgia Institute of Technology and his master’s degree in architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Most recently, he directed the firm’s Education, Arts & Culture Studio while serving as project principal and design leader on a variety of award-winning, sustainable institutional projects. This expanding studio leadership role will now be filled by John Starr, AIA and Ken Higa, AIA – two other experienced principals of the firm.
