    NAC|Architecture Announces Leadership Progression
    Bruce Blackmer and Dana Harbaugh
    NAC|Architecture’s next step in its leadership progression plan positions Dana Harbaugh, AIA as President and CEO of NAC and Bruce Blackmer, FAIA as Chairman of the Board.

    “Dana is a passionate design provocateur and in his prior role of Chief Practice Officer, focused on raising our quality of design, client advocacy and project delivery” explains Blackmer. “As a 20 year veteran in our culture of integrating clients into our uniquely participatory design process, Dana leads by example.” Dana continues his leadership role on a diverse mix of projects such as Rockwood Retirement Community’s Summit Tower, Montana State University’s Student Housing Expansion and North Central High School’s STEM Addition.

    During Blackmer’s 11 years as CEO, NAC’s organizational structure was redesigned, offices were added in California and Colorado, and the firm rose to Architect Magazine’s Top 50 firms in the United States. Harbaugh noted that “We will continue to benefit from Bruce’s breadth of expertise in organizational structure and strategic expansion to grow NAC’s reach. Bruce’s continued leadership allows me to stay deeply engaged in delivering our services.”

    These leadership role transitions further demonstrate NAC|Architecture’s commitment to continuity and the teamwork needed to deliver national talent through professionals within the local communities we serve from a network of offices in the western United States. NAC|Architecture creates innovative environments for learning, healing and human development.
