Buro Happold expands leadership ranks for U.S. Healthcare, Science and Technology practice

Buro Happold, a global leader in planning and implementation at every scale for the science, technology and healthcare markets, has announced the elevation of three principals to key leadership roles in the consultancy’s Boston and San Francisco offices. According to partner John Swift, Global Sector Lead for the Healthcare, Science and Technology (HST) practice, the new postings include:

·       Justin Molé, PE, to U.S. East Coast Sciences Sector Leader.

·       Justin Schultz, PE, to U.S. West Coast Sciences Sector Leader

·       Don Rosen to U.S. Healthcare Sector Leader

Reflecting Buro Happold’s deep expertise and vast portfolio of leading-edge works in these sectors, the appointments further crystallize the team structure within the firm’s worldwide HST practice, to better support the goals of clients and collaborative partners at the vanguard of three interrelated, fast-growing and highly competitive markets.

“As we continue to grow, take on groundbreaking project work, and add breadth and depth to our collective expertise within the HST practice, elevating these three principals to these critically important leadership roles serves to reinforce our commitment to innovative, highly sustainable built environments for the Healthcare and Science markets in the U.S.,” says Swift. “The appointments also reflect and acknowledge the principals’ significant individual contributions, knowledge and skill.

Swift adds, “I look forward to continuing to work closely with Justin, Don and Justin, as well as the many other Buro Happold colleagues who work with us, to deliver high-value, pioneering project outcomes.”

Through the HST practice Buro Happold also engages in its own cutting-edge research in cooperation with industry allies and major public agencies.
