A Retirement Announcement

After 25 years of partnership at Gabellini Sheppard Associates, Dan is looking toward the future and launching plans for retirement:

I am excited to announce my retirement after spending the past year preparing the firm for my transition. As of this January, my new role will be Consulting Principal, assisting Gabellini Sheppard Associates on special projects. I am grateful for our 25 year collaboration, and we have ensured that the studio is ready for the future as it embarks on this new chapter of its development.

Michael and Kimberly continue to direct the firm as Design Partners and will now share the role of Architect of Record for current and future building department filings. 

My financial management responsibilities are being assumed by Stephanie Musselwhite, our Business Director and Controller. Stephanie comes to us from Gensler and AECOM and began her career at an architectural firm similar in size and character to Gabellini Sheppard Associates. 

Business Development and Marketing will continue to be handled by Joel Robare, who joined our team last year with over 20 years of design and strategic business experience.

Architectural and interior design responsibilities will be supported by our talented Associates, Bobby Young, Colin Martin, Sylvia Maffei and Ozlem Akcay, who combined have 40 years of experience with our firm.

Michael, Kimberly and I very much appreciate the wonderful clients, consultants, contractors, colleagues and staff who have been instrumental to our success. I look forward to staying in touch as Gabellini Sheppard Associates moves into the future.
