We nominated Jane McGlennon as she is an emerging leader in our firm. Recently promoted to Senior Design Manager, Jane leads the design on projects through interactive engagement with the client, detailed communication with the team and thoughtful design direction throughout the entire process. Jane’s mind starts working at the 1st moment of client contact and starts to weave a story that is told in a 3-dimensional format. She is able to articulate this story to the client in a way that, no matter what the client’s architectural experience is, they not only understand, but envision and anticipate the final product. Jane sees the details and how they enrich and influence the completed picture. She is what we refer to as a renaissance designer. Jane’s abilities do not start and stop with design development, her core competencies range from client communication to detailed design development, to construction documentation and detailing to the true technical end of construction as well as field coordination. Her enthusiasm and creativity inspires me and I want to work harder because of her…for her.
