CEO Marc Marchant said he believes that Peele’s unparalleled experience, coupled with her commitment to architecture in service to communities, uniquely qualifies her for this role. “Katherine embodies LS3P’s Values, Mission, and Vision, and has long been a driving force in the firm’s success,” he says. “Her reputation as an outstanding designer, leader, and advocate for the industry comes from her decades of service to the firm and the profession, and we are honored to work with her as the new Chair of LS3P’s Board.”
