SGA Promotes 18 Associates Across NYC + Boston

SGA – a leading, 150+ person architecture and design firm with state-of-the-art projects for Life Sciences, academic, mixed-use and commercial clients – has just promoted 18 individuals across its Boston and New York City offices, marking the firm’s largest class of associates to be named on the Pathway to Leadership to date.

Following two years of explosive growth – leading the firm to more than double in size – the promotions reflect SGA’s robust Pathway to Leadership initiative, providing clear guidance for an individual’s development within the firm and the industry at large, while nurturing the next generation of firm leadership. The move follows a string of dynamic new hires and promotions – including five principals and seven directors – that have occurred over the past year, along with a monumental internal transfer of ownership.

Each year, senior leadership collaborates to identify, nominate, and select those tenured employees believed to fully embody the values and mission of SGA.

This year–the firm’s largest class to date–is composed of 18 individuals across the Boston and New York City offices. These professionals have consistently led and supported improvements to firm culture, communication, talent development, and thought leadership all while fine-tuning their business acumen.

“It is important to recognize those who make a real impact on the day-to-day operations of the firm,” explains Adam Spagnolo, Chief Executive Officer at SGA, “These individuals are the boots on the ground uncovering new routes to success for both our clients, and our firm.”

Each member of this diverse group of professionals has made an invaluable impact on the growth and development of SGA and they continue to show a commitment to being a resource to junior staff. They represent the next generation of firm leadership, mentor others, and have a clear ability to navigate through the ever-changing industry of Architecture and Interior Design.

“What makes this group especially qualified for the Pathway to Leadership is their commitment to firm engagement,” says Gable Clarke, President of Interior Design and Partner at SGA, “Each of these individuals elevated to the Pathway to Leadership is wholeheartedly committed to success. Not only for themselves, but for each individual employee and colleague here at SGA.”

This recognition is reserved for employees who go above and beyond the demands of their role. It signifies their industry expertise, but also their emotional intelligence and ability to engage with internal and external stakeholders to produce a more diverse, inclusive, and collaborative environment.

“We are incredibly proud to have this group on the Pathway to Leadership,” shares John Sullivan, President of Architecture and Partner at SGA, “They continue to make impactful decisions that are directly shaping the future of our firm.”
