David Englund

Partner, Chief Financial Officer

With a mind for business, David helps bring order to the chaos of our creative environment, calling himself (only half jokingly) a drill sergeant amongst the hippy recruits. As Business Partner, David guides the financial performance of our projects and overall company operations. A proponent of change, constructive confrontation, and efficiency, he is responsible for structuring future growth while ensuring short-term gains.

Intrigued by the built environment from an early age, David has dedicated his considerable talents to the A/E industry for over 30 years. He feels great pride in walking by a building and knowing he played a part in making it happen. Indeed, David has played an important role in establishing the financial health and future growth of our studio, fostering an environment in which great talent can thrive.

David received his MBA from University of California, Berkeley and his Bachelor of Science in Managerial Economics from University of California, Davis. He is a board member of AIA San Francisco, a recognized leader within the Bay Area Financial Officers Group and the Association of A/E Business Leaders, and the Finance Committee Chairman of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church.
