Global architecture and design firm Perkins&Will has seated three new executives at some of the firm’s highest leadership levels:
- Todd Gilles, firmwide director of finance, has become chief financial officer, succeeding Dana Waymire, who retires in March.
- Susan Gushe, managing director of the firm’s Vancouver and Calgary studios, has become chief operating officer, succeeding Tyson Curcio, who has transitioned full-time into his role as chief practice officer.
- Amber Hamilton, firmwide director of talent, has become chief talent officer, succeeding Meg Brown, who retired earlier this month.
“We’re in an exciting period of change, growth, and expansion,” says CEO Phil Harrison. “Now is the time for us to celebrate and express gratitude for Dana’s and Meg’s many contributions; to support Tyson as he focuses on his chief practice officer role; and to welcome a new generation of talented leaders to the table. Todd, Susan, and Amber have been with Perkins&Will for a long time and have a consummate understanding of our firm’s business, culture, and values, making this a very natural transition.”
