SA+R Rings in 2019 with Twelve Firm Promotions
Denver-based architecture, interior design, and planning firm Shears Adkins Rockmore (SA+R) has announced several new leadership positions to start the new year. This decision follows years of strong growth, award-winning design, forward-thinking business planning, and the completion of new projects around the Denver community and beyond.
While the firm has operated without identifying specific leadership roles since forming in 2002, firm owners Chris Shears, FAIA, Jesse Adkins, AIA, and Andy Rockmore, AIA, will now be joined by two long-time leaders within the firm as Principals; Kevin Eronimous, AIA, LEED AP and Dean Smith, AIA, CPHC. Eronimous and Smith have held significant internal and community leadership positions for the practice for more than a decade alongside their valuable roles on high-profile projects.
SA+R has also created two additional leadership tiers, senior associate and associate, in recognition of the hard work and contributions provided by colleagues within the thriving practice.
“These Architects have been leading in immeasurable ways within our firm. It’s simply time to recognize them publicly for their important contributions to our practice.” said Andy Rockmore, AIA, firm principal.
The following individuals were identified for their leadership and contributions to SA+R as of January 1 of this year:
While the firm will continue its well-regarded egalitarian culture, known in Colorado and nationally for their highly collaborative approach to the design process, this recognition will offer the practice additional clarity and focus.
“In our project teams we operate as equals, and we will continue to practice that way. Whether a fresh graduate with insight into emerging technologies or a seasoned architect with hard-earned experience in design, our teams are assembled to serve the
project and the client. Any and all ideas are encouraged in the process of making exceptional architecture,” said Chris Shears, FAIA, firm co-founder and principal.
With high-profile projects underway such as the new Meow Wolf Denver, Broadway Station, and the River Mile Master Plan, the firm is excited to embark on another strong year with the help of this solid leadership team.
