Completing a process of restructuring that began in 2015, MKC Associates is now MKC Architects. As part of this process, all of the firm’s activities have been relocated to the Columbus office. Moreover, management has been reorganized as follows: James M. Schmidt is now Chief Executive Officer, John Meegan is now President, and Todd R. Wrobleski is now Chief Financial Officer.
The restructuring of the office organization has consolidated multiple redundant roles, therefore making the process of our services more efficient and cost effective. Consolidating our core operations under one roof will enable us to increase our quality and improve our client experience. This move will combine our strengths from each location and create an even stronger firm. We are confident that the new organization framework laid in place will revolutionize the way MKC Architects operates, allowing us to provide more complete, daring, and masterful buildings.
