Elizabeth Bird Brandeen
1970 - 2022
We are grieved by the passing of our friend and colleague Elizabeth Bird Brandeen. She joined the firm (then Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer Associates) as a Project Accountant in 2001 and was promoted to firm Controller in 2004, and recently to Senior Associate. In this role, she oversaw our accounting practices, while playing a key role with our clients and consultants with regard to our contractual and financial obligations. She interfaced regularly with firm leadership regarding firm financial management, oversaw the budgeting process and engaged with outside counsel. The diligence she consistently exhibited significantly contributed to our financial stability and success. In addition, Elizabeth she was involved in educating and mentoring our project managers, expanding their knowledge about the financial aspects of architectural practice. She formed strong relationships of high mutual regard, within and without the firm, and was smart and funny and warm. She will be greatly missed.
