Mark Ramirez

Managing Director

“My first big win in design school was exhilarating—like a design virus infected me. I was possessed with a hunger to make and build more and better. I was hooked.”

Mark lives by our Design For What’s Next mantra and is committed to pushing the design envelope and driving industry change. He considers himself a diesel engine—the bigger the project, the more complex and challenging, the higher his enjoyment. Good thing, too, because his ongoing project as Managing Director includes running project and staff operations, project profitability, and recruitment firmwide. Mark is the former Commercial Office Director and keeps his finger on the pulse by serving as the Principal in Charge and Director on a number of high-profile projects as well as an executive sponsor of our iLab microgrant program where he champions the exploration of staff curiosities and project innovations. Outside the office, Mark is a devoted husband and father of two intelligent but mischievous children (and puppy, Aspen).
