Dallas-based Merriman Anderson Architects announced that Mike Leinback, AIA, has assumed the new position within the firm of director of process management and improvement.
The firm said that Leinback’s 40-year architecture career gives him a unique perspective on the advances and changes in technology, procedures and processes that define the backbone of an active firm’s workflow.
“Anyone who has been involved in the practice of architecture over the past several decades is aware of the remarkable advancements in every aspect of the business,” MAA President Milton Anderson said in a statement. “By overseeing the myriad processes within a multidisciplinary firm such as MAA, Mike can help us develop solid creative solutions that serve all.”
The firm said that Leinback’s mission is to strategize with the MAA team in order to develop best practices at every level of their architectural and design product delivery.
It said his experience allows for insight into the overall process, especially as related to production and management of construction documents and construction administration. MAA said its projects often entail both exterior and interior architecture, space planning, interior design, graphic design, 3D visualization and more.
MAA said that Leinback’s career includes time at his own boutique firm where he produced and managed a wide array of project types including educational, religious, retail, financial and large-scale industrial projects.
Leinback’s experience at different architecture firms has helped him identify areas for improvement and will help MAA facilitate refined processes and seamless execution of projects, the firm said.
“I look forward to helping the firm continue to streamline successful operations and processes based on the knowledge I’ve gained from my 40-year career in the architecture and design industry,” Leinback said in a statement.
