CPL is thrilled to announce the elevation of several team members who have demonstrated outstanding A/E expertise and stewardship! These milestone promotions align with a strategic vision to fortify our leadership bench, improve practice offerings and further position the firm for exponential growth nationwide.
National Practice Leader Promotions
To ensure that every project is built with the future in mind, our efforts require nimble servant leadership married with a proven aptitude for client relationship management—two attributes that Chris Colby, Ken Mayer, Eric Wies and Rich Edinger all possess. We’re therefore pleased to appoint them as National Practice Leaders!
CPL’s National Practice Leaders spearhead the creation and execution of long-term business plans to attract new clients and achieve established profit, portfolio and staffing goals, working with Regional Practice Leaders positioned throughout our growing footprint to guarantee a unified approach to project management. Together, they nurture agile teams, promoting operational efficiency and steady career progression for the next generation.
At the helm of our K-12 Practice team, Colby will collaborate with school districts and local leaders to build strong academic foundations that ensure students—and their communities—are well-prepared for the future.
Mayer, Wies and Edinger will likewise lead three distinct Community Practice-based teams.
Under Mayer’s leadership, our Vertical group will pioneer designs for civic buildings, libraries, museums, zoos, aquariums and parks and recreation facilities, emphasizing spaces that foster neighborhood engagement and pride.
Guided by Wies, our Horizonal team will address design for sites, utilities, water and wastewater systems, thoroughfares, bridges and other “horizontal” projects, creating infrastructure that seamlessly integrates form and function within the built environment.
Finally, our Government Services group will act as embedded advisors to town councils, driving progress for entire counties. With a background in the public sector, Edinger intimately understands clients’ perspectives, making him the ideal candidate to guide informed decisions that empower residents to thrive.
Associate Principal Promotions
At the forefront of business development, CPL’s Associate Principals are responsible for identifying and pursuing new prospects and opportunities across all practice areas. With an emphasis on cultivating robust relationships and revenue generation to amplify the firm’s regional influence, the team members elevated to this position will continue supporting current partners while seeking new opportunities to provide reliable, high-performance design solutions.
In that vein, we are delighted to congratulate Dave Chase, Tod Dalton, Jason Foote, David Hunsberger, Kory Hunsinger, Steve Jouriles, Rebecca Keefer, Andrew Kosa, Andy Learn, Ron Rink, Lauren Tarsio and Ryne Wight!
Technical Principal Promotions
The Technical Principal role is reserved for subject matter experts who are deeply passionate about the intricacies of design and excel in documentation and analyses. These newly promoted team members will oversee large-scale, firm-defining ventures and draw from a deep bench of experience to standardize processes, provide mentorship and bridge knowledge from junior team members to seasoned professionals.
Congratulations to Jim Basile, Mack Cain, Alan Cox, Cheryl Graeub, Eric Leibenguth, Molly Livingstone, Tony Marchetti, Eric Matzan, Michael Pena, Tim Pulver, Tim Wagner, Jennifer Wengender and Larry Werts!
As we embark on 2024, we extend our best wishes to these exceptional individuals on their well-deserved advancements. CPL’s Board of Directors is confident that their wide breadth of expertise, business acumen and inherent people skills are poised to enhance project outcomes not only for our valued clients, but the entire firm as well.
