Tom Reisenbichler

Principal, Managing Director

Tom doesn’t like to sit still for long. Bitten by the entrepreneurial bug in college while trying to put together a real estate deal, he’s since launched multiple businesses—including co-founding the architectural firm that later became part of Perkins&Will.

Tom always looks for opportunities to get out of his comfort zone, in work and in life. (Ask him about his amoeba metaphor, which is famous around the Dallas studio.) He considers architecture to be a type of puzzle, which he’s always been good at, and is constantly seeking ways to create in a different and better way.

Now that he’s an empty nester, Tom finds more time to play golf, attend the theater, and host gatherings of friends. He and his wife are adventurous travelers who enjoy active and exotic vacations: Kenya is a current favorite, and he still wants to visit Morocco and Tibet.

“Treat people the way you want to be treated. Try to put people in positions where their greatest strengths shine.”
