Jonathan Cartu Declares: Get to know the panelists for Monday’s panel on getting…

While it’s easy to see a recession as nothing but challenge and hardship, a downturn in the economy has historically provided opportunities to make positive change, for both individuals and businesses. 

On Monday we’ll be (virtually) hosting an important discussion with a group of panelists that have a lot of valuable insight for architects and firm owners about how to best get through a recession. The panel, Lessons on Surviving, and Even Thriving Through a Recession, will take place on Monday, October 12th, from 1-2pm EST (10-11am PST). 

How does the current recession compare to previous recessions? Why is architecture so vulnerable to changes in the economy? Should firms scale back or push forward and spend during a recession? How can a firm take advantage of opportunities a recession brings? What’s the best approach to leading a team through a challenging time? These are just a few of the questions we plan to address during the panel. 

RSVP here to reserve your spot. Our audience limit of 500 has almost been reached, so reserve your spot soon if you’d like to attend. 

The panel will be moderated by Archinect’s Founder/Director Paul Petrunia, featuring a panel of industry leaders that have both pushed through numerous recessions, and even emerged out of a recession. 

Carie Penabad is Associate Dean and Director of the Bachelor of Architecture program at the University of Miami, and principal of Cúre & Penabad. She and her partner, Adib Cúre, responded to the great recession of 2008 by expanding into new markets, applying a creative and innovative approach to growth during a challenging time. 

Patrick MacLeamy is the former CEO and Chairman of the global architecture firm HOK. In his retirement he has been committed to helping establish standards of quality, reliability and efficiency in the building and infrastructure industry. His recently published book, Designing a World-Class Architecture Firm: The People, Stories and Strategies Behind HOK, describes the history of one of the world’s largest architecture firms, with lessons to help other architects, interior designers, urban planners and creative services professionals grow bigger or better.

Gregg Pasquarelli is the co-Founder of SHoP, one of the most innovative and fastest growing architecture practices in the country. Emerging out of the challenges at the beginning of the century, with the dot-com bust and 9/11, SHoP has proven to push through hardship with growth that is almost unprecedented for a 24-year old firm. Prior to becoming an architect, Pasquarelli was an investment banker. He has taught at Yale, Columbia, the University of Virginia, and the University of Florida. 

David Gensler is the former CEO of Gensler, one of the world’s largest architecture firms, where he helped grow the company from 500 people and $60M of revenue to over 5,000 people and $1.1B of revenue. He currently manages a vineyard in Sonoma County, is involved in several real estate development projects, is on the board of several companies in the real estate and technology space and serves on the Advisory Council for the Stanford Distinguished Career Institute.
