Stambaugh Ness Announces New AE Advisory Practice Area
Stambaugh Ness (SN) is pleased to announce the launch of their AE Advisory practice area and service line. Wanting to do more than just meet a need, SN reimagined how to help architecture and engineering (AE) firms thrive before, during, and after an organizational transition takes place.
Combining a powerhouse of AE industry expertise, including professionals with front-line industry experience, SN has created a service line that solves critical issues and accelerates a firm’s future growth and success. Leading the new practice area are:
- Kate Allen, PE, MBA – Director AE Advisory
- Scott Hursh, CPA, CCIFP, CDA, CGMA – Director, AE Advisory
- Kristi Weierbach, Ph.D., SPHR, SHRM-SCP – Managing Director, Workforce Advisory
- Brad Wilson, CMA, CDA, MBA – Director, AE Consulting
Focusing on transition strategies, including Mergers and Acquisitions, Ownership and Leadership Transition, and Business Improvement Strategies, this team of nationally recognized thought leaders works collaboratively with clients to anticipate and prepare for their transition and ensure overall success from the inside out.
Some call it a cliché, but SN’s AE Advisory practice is built on the belief that people are a firm’s heart and soul. As such, SN takes a lead with people approach that treats transition as a cultural journey, not an event.
Stambaugh Ness President and Chief Executive Officer Steven L. Hake states, “This new focus area was born of SN’s desire to help AE firms be future-ready. Transition has long been an area where firms have struggled to bridge gaps and overcome challenges. With this uniquely qualified group of industry experts, we are able to partner with firms to create the future they aspire to.”
