WAUWATOSA, Wisc.—With the new decade, AG Architecture, a firm designing innovative senior living environments, has named two new executive officers, Eric Harrmann, AIA, as chief design officer and Tracey Schnick, AIA, as COO.
Schnick joined AG Architecture in 1989 as part of the engineering department and has been an integral team member ever since. Her strong leadership and organizational skills have been honed across 30 years of senior living, multifamily and mixed-use projects.
From project manager to team leader to director of architectural services to COO, she understands the intricacies of running an architectural firm and how to maintain AG’s high standard of project documentation and quality control. She will continue to be a steward of AG’s unique company culture, our commitment to creating a sense of community, and our reputation for bringing certainty and predictability to the construction process.
Harrmann joined AG Architecture as an intern in 2005. He is a creative and driven professional who has always demonstrated strong leadership skills and a commitment to AG’s core values and mission. A skilled design professional, respected team member, and mentor, he has played a key role in nurturing our long-term relationships and creating new, exciting opportunities.
His hands-on experience on all aspects of the project process and creative vision make him a respected design professional who instills confidence in project stakeholders. He will continue to uphold AG’s reputation for providing vision and building consensus while supporting AG’s commitment to creating a sense of community both internally and with the firm’s work across the country.
“This is an exciting new chapter in the history of AG Architecture. AG, and the preceding generations of the firm, have afforded me great personal and professional fulfillment over the past 53 years,” describes Gene Guszkowski, founding principal of AG Architecture.
“As Eric and Tracey take on the day-to-day details of running the firm, I look forward to a more limited work week focused on mentorship, thought leadership and select project involvement. The next generation of AG is in great hands with these long-term team members and respected leaders.”
The transition to new executive officers is further supported by a slightly revised composition of the firm’s leadership team, updating roles:
John Cronin, senior design architect, will continue to maintain an on-going connection to the firm’s senior living roots, while providing continued mentorship to the firm’s emerging professionals.
Cindy Lofy, director of finance & administration, will continue to efficiently keep the firm in order as she directs finance and administrative functions.
Tony Luciano, director of engineering services, will continue to direct in-house engineering services as well as serve as a liaison to outside consultants and AG’s primary clients.
Mike Miller, project management representative, will communicate current trends and challenges in project management.
