DWL Architects + Planners is proud to announce two significant promotions!
Brad Swank has been promoted to Vice President and Principal. He has worked very hard to establish and grow our Ohio–now with 8 people. He has developed many great relationships with Midwestern University, private aviation clients, Nationwide Childrens Hospital, The Ohio State University and Detroit Airport. Brad started at DWL in 2007, moved back to his hometown of Columbus, Ohio and then started the Ohio office in 2019.
In response to this promotion, Brad said, “I’m thankful to DWL’s leadership team for seeing the opportunities in Ohio and having the faith in me to open the office here to better help our established clients and create new relationships. I’m humbled and excited to continue the progress we have made. Our staff here are great and I’m so lucky to be able to lead them.”
In our Phoenix office, Megan Hawkins has been promoted to Associate. She joined DWL’s aviation team in 2015 and went right to work on the PHX Sky Harbor International Airport Terminal 3 Modernization project. She is quickly becoming one of our industry leaders in Code and ADA standards. Megan’s mentorship skills have been a true value to DWL’s Midwestern University team over recent years.
“DWL has given me a wonderful opportunity to contribute to the future of the firm and I am very excited to see where this path takes me,” remarked Megan upon the announcement.
DWL president, Sandra Kukla said, “I am so proud to announce these promotions. DWL is fortunate to have such great long-term staff in both the Phoenix and Ohio offices. Both Brad and Megan have proven to be tremendous leaders and innovative designers. Brad is a natural leader, with an easy-going personality – not to mention his great golf game. Megan has been a solid addition to the team from the first day she arrived and has always been a team player. Her spirit enlightens the DWL culture with her creative and fun personality. Everyone here at DWL is excited to continue delivering excellent projects for clients across the country alongside Brad and Megan.”
