As many of you know, Gord, Dom and Andrew have been Senior Associates in the studio for decades.
Gord, Barb’s brother, has been with H&W since day one, and has been invaluable to Bob and I as we established and grew the business. Gord, a Laurier business grad, has proven skills not only as a new business developer and project manager, but as a designer as well. That’s a lot of hats to wear.
Dominic joined H&W in 2000 (wow, where did that time go?) and remains as H&W’s incredibly talented, in-the-know, super energetic, Creative Director, designer and project lead. He continues to inspire the H&W team and is a leader in the Canadian graphic design community.
In 2009, Andrew came to work at H&W originally as a “temp." But it wasn’t more than two weeks into his contract before Bob and I knew we couldn’t do without him. His digital expertise and solid project management skills are vital to so many of our clients today.
So as part of my next chapter, I will be stepping back from my day-to-day position at Hambly & Woolley to join Bob as a Partner Emeritus. I will, however, continue to work with clients in a senior role, as well as mentor the partners and our studio staff. I am grateful for all the friendships, and gratifying work that has resulted from over 30 years as a co-founder of H&W. Bob and I couldn’t be prouder of the fact that the firm, under the leadership of the new partners, continues to thrive because we all care about doing great work.
