A small business owner wears many hats—CEO, CFO, COO, CTO, CMO, CDW (that’s “chief dog walker,” just ask Willow!), and more. The to-do list seems to get longer every day. Add overseeing nearly 20 team members (BTW, we’re still hiring) on more than 100 architecture projects a year as far away as Delaware, and you’ll understand why our principal architect, Seth Anderson, is so excited about this following announcement…
Please join us in welcoming Dave Zinn to Ascent Architecture & Interiors as our business operations director! This is a new position at our firm focused on overseeing the business of architecture. Dave rounds out our administrative team, which includes our office and accounting manager, Laura Moss, and marketing and administrative assistant, Olivia Tycksen.
Dave brings more than 30-years of business experience, ranging from marketing to budgeting to strategic planning. Most recently, he served as chief operating officer at Worthy Brewing, where he oversaw 125 employees in both restaurant and brewery operations. Previously, he worked as the creative director at Les Schwab Tire Company and as a project manager at Westinghouse, in addition to running his own marketing businesses.
“Dave has a unique mix of logic and creativity and fits in well with a group of architects and designers,” says Seth. “And, while I enjoy running a business, I look forward to having time freed up to focus on architecture. With Dave’s administrative help as we grow, I can better support our project managers, mentor emerging professionals, and maintain the high level of service and design our clients expect.”
We look forward to this next evolution for Ascent as we grow to serve our clients’ needs!
