June 14, 2013 -- The principals of Gould Evans are pleased to announce that we have completed the ownership transition of the firm to its next generation of principals and design leaders. Bob Gould and Dave Evans, founders of the firm nearly 40 years ago, have carefully managed the transition process in support of our clients and our future.

This is an important milestone in a process that has been underway for several years. It completes a transition of strategic firm leadership and day-to-day operations to an experienced team of principals who have collaborated closely for two decades. Bob and Dave will remain involved in selective activities to support ongoing clients and projects, with more freedom to enjoy other activities.

In accordance with this achievement, Gould Evans has launched a redesigned web site at www.gouldevans.com. The new site reflects our identity as a design practice defined by a process of inquiry, strengthened by diversity and connected to region and community.

The Kansas City studio of Gould Evans is jointly led by six principals - Anthony Rohr, Dennis Strait, David Reid, Adam Sterns, Robert Riccardi and Dan Zeller. The Lawrence studio is led by principal John Wilkins. They are supported by a leadership network of twelve principals in our six locations nationwide.

"We are proud of the staff and the principal leadership that has energetically emerged" said Dave Evans and Bob Gould. "We're excited about the opportunity they have and confident in their future success."

Gould Evans is dedicated to design work that transforms its surroundings, engages its occupants, sustains its environment and supports our clients' missions. We invite you to get to know us at www.gouldevans.com. About Gould EvansAt Gould Evans, we believe partnership is not about compromise. It is the expression of individual talents made manifest through a shared vision. We seek clients who share our values of intellectual curiosity, collaboration and passion for meaningful design outcomes. Our portfolio is intentionally diverse - in project type, scale and location. This diversity is a strength that encourages innovative, critical thinking and discourages formula. We practice in a wide range of physical and cultural contexts, each demanding an understanding before an approach. Ultimately, we strive to make buildings that delight their occupants, perform at the highest level and stand the test of time.
