Dyer Brown launches new title track as part of growth plan

Architecture and interior design firm Dyer Brown has announced a major expansion of its leadership ranks and employee ownership in the firm.

A new career track has debuted to include Associate and Principal levels, and the firm named its first four associates, a senior associate, two associate principals and new director of design as part of the announcement.

Dyer Brown’s new title track and firm structure are formulated to recognize and foster professional qualities of leadership, including “commitment to the best interest of the firm as a whole; engagement of clients and teams with integrity; and maintaining transparent, respectful communication with a willingness to continually improve,” said the firm.


“As we further build and expand the future of Dyer Brown, we also actively seek to foster and encourage emerging leaders and owners who will take the firm forward to the next fifty years,” said Brent Zeigler, AIA, IIDA, president of Dyer Brown.

“This new structure enhances our ability to reward and recognize our top designers and collaborators.”

As it rolls out the new opportunity of its Associate titles, Dyer Brown has named its first four: Kelly Conover, the firm’s marketing manager; Maggie Mitchell, IIDA, LEED GA, senior interior designer and leader of Dyer Brown’s Atlanta office; Charisse Marchesi Smith, senior project manager and studio coordinator for Corporate Services; and Lisa Hylton Lamothe, senior project manager and studio coordinator for the firm’s Workplace, Retail + Hospitality studio.

Dyer Brown will advance Heather Stanley, NCIDQ, to Senior Associate in charge of the Asset Design & Support practice.

Dyer Brown also announced the appointment of two Associate Principals: Ashley Dunn, AIA, who also serves as Director of Workplace, as well as Sara Ross, LEED AP, Director of Corporate Services.

In addition, the award-winning design firm has made a new Director-level appointment, elevating senior architect and designer Karen Bala, AIA to be Director of Design.
