Looking Towards a Bright Future at Engberg Anderson
Milwaukee, WI – Engberg Anderson Architects continues to expand its footprint throughout the Midwest. Led by partners Mark Ernst, Bill Williams, Joe Huberty and Bill Robison, the award-winning architectural firm has a rich portfolio in a variety of building types including multi-family housing, mixed-use developments, aviation, libraries, cultural and civic buildings, corporate workplaces, senior care and historic preservation.
As the firm approaches 30 years in business, it has enjoyed significant growth outside of southeast Wisconsin. Headquartered in the Historic Third Ward, satellite offices were opened in Madison, WI (2005) and Tucson, AZ (2007). Acknowledging years of collaboration with clients throughout Illinois and continued growth across the region, the firm opened an office in Chicago in 2014.
As a result of its broader presence, the Milwaukee office has added two partners with the recent promotions of Alexandra Ramsey and Eric Ponto. In addition, the firm has recognized five other individuals for both their excellence in design and exemplary leadership within the firm, industry and business community.
“Promoting the next generation of leadership has always been part of the culture at Engberg Anderson Architects. As partners, Alex and Eric are poised to provide high quality design and exceptional service to our clients,” said Mark Ernst.
