Glavé & Holmes Architecture announced today that Lori Garrett, FAIA, LEED Green Associate has been named President of the firm. Garrett succeeds Randy Holmes, FAIA, who was President of the firm for 21 years. Holmes will continue to serve as a Senior Principal and focus on business development.

Lori, who has been at Glavé & Holmes for 17 years, will continue to lead projects she is managing for the firm’s Higher Education Studio. As President, she will provide strategic guidance and empower the firm to meet its goals. 

“Lori is a phenomenal leader who will continue to inspire and empower our entire team,” Randy recently noted. “This leadership transition continues our firm’s evolution and positions Glavé & Holmes for an exciting future as a woman-led and majority women-owned architecture firm.”  

With this transition, Glavé & Holmes becomes the largest woman-led architecture firm in the Commonwealth of Virginia and Lori joins a select few women in the country to lead architecture firms with over 60 employees. 

“Our firm has earned an unparalleled reputation for excellence and crafting solutions of enduring quality,” Lori said. “I see a bright future ahead because we are well positioned to meet the evolving needs of our clients and communities.”  

This change will have a minimal impact on our day-to-day operations. All project teams will remain the same and both Lori and Randy will continue to manage projects they are leading.
