As President/CEO of HMC Architects, Brian Staton focuses on collaboration as the key ingredient for the firm’s success. This includes design leadership, employee engagement and development, and business strategies that produce results benefiting the firm and the communities in which HMC operates and its employees-owners live and work. During his 25 years at HMC, he has held many positions, including Managing Principal, and has gained extensive experience in project management, design, programming, and construction administration. This varied experience provides Brian with valuable insight into his passion – people. He truly feels that HMC’s success is attributed to its talented staff and clients. As President/CEO Brian is driven by his passion to bring people together around a common purpose and shared vision.
But actions speak louder than words. HMC Architects’ purpose is to partner with its clients and communities to serve the greater good. We do this by being focused almost exclusively on schools and hospitals. These types of facilities bring tremendous value to the community and play an important role in shaping and supporting a better life for everyone. Celebrating its 76th year, HMC Architects is a 325+ person firm with nine offices, in 3 states, and more completed projects than anyone could have imagined. As a way to deepen the firm’s commitment to giving back, HMC established Designing Futures Foundation in 2009, a non-profit organization aimed at supporting the communities and markets in which HMC operates. Our foundation, in tandem with HMC's commitment to Social Innovation, has given HMC the opportunity to make a difference beyond the built environment
