San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 26, 2014
Delivering knowledge solutions and value-based design has been the mission of Flad Architects’ San Francisco office since its inception 20 years ago. Opened with a few clients in the Bay area, an unwavering commitment has led to a client base spread throughout the west coast. As an expansion of Flad’s capabilities, Brad Leathley, Martin Regge and Kim Drake will be joining Flad in Seattle.
“We were looking for a knowledge-based firm known for client commitment,” Leathley said. “Having competed against Flad for years, we see great alignment in our mutual expertise and experience.” Prior to joining Flad, Leathley served as the Science and Higher Education Principal at NBBJ Seattle. Leathley brings over 30 years of experience throughout the U.S., UK and Asia. A nationally recognized expert, Leathley has lectured at the University of Washington, Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Idaho.
“The addition of this team will enhance Flad’s west coast practice in many ways,” said John Mickow, founding Principal of the Flad San Francisco office. “One area where they bring additional strength is in strategic business planning, urban design and campus planning.”
Regge formerly led urban design and planning at Community Attributes and at NBBJ in Seattle. He serves on the Seattle Design Commission and Renton Planning Commission. Regge earned his degree in Urban Planning and Landscape Architecture from Arizona State University and is registered with the American Institute of Certified Planners.
With over 15 years of experience as a marketing and communication strategist, Drake most recently was the Science + Education Marketing Manager for NBBJ Seattle. Drake also worked at Microsoft as their Marketing Communication Manager and earned her degree from The Evergreen State College.
