Tim Carl, CEO
HGA believes that investing in their ability to listen has helped them to generate unique insights, raise the quality of design, and improve their ability to attract, engage, and develop their employees. Because of this belief, HGA has invested in a series of programs such as equity, diversity and inclusion training, research, leadership development, and a variety of internal communications and knowledge sharing initiatives. In his KA Connect 2019 talk, Tim Carl will share the benefits, challenges, and key lessons learned from HGA’s journey into deepening and scaling their ability to listen.
Since joining HGA in 1998 as a designer, Tim has built a national reputation for authentic, celebrated architecture that artfully connects ideas about program, technology and environment with a deep understanding of place and his relationships with clients. He took on the role of CEO in 2013; his collaborative and thoughtful approach has strengthened and guided the organization through significant growth for the firm. His leadership in articulating a collective vision and point of view has led to significant investments in learning and research, sustainability, technology, and equity—all in deference to building a more positive, lasting impact through design.
