Moody Nolan Elevates Jonathan Moody to CEO
Architectural firm Moody Nolan has appointed Jonathan Moody as its CEO, effective Jan. 1, 2020. Jonathan Moody has served as president of the Columbus-based firm since 2016, taking day-to-day responsibility for the firm in tandem with his father, CEO and founder Curt Moody. Curt Moody will continue to be fully engaged with the firm as chairman.
Jonathan, an architect, joined the firm in 2011 as a senior associate and was promoted to partner a year later. He was elevated to president three years ago, becoming one of the youngest architectural firm presidents in the United States.
Curt Moody, who co-founded the firm in 1982 as a two-person operation, has seen the company grow to 12 offices and become the largest African American-owned architectural firm in the country. As chairman, he will continue to provide active, hands-on leadership and strategic focus.
Moody Nolan also announced a new four-member executive team established to provide a holistic approach to the care and growth of the 12 Moody Nolan offices around the country. While the four Team members will continue in their current project responsibilities, the Team provides a formal structure to facilitate strategic interaction among the firm’s leadership.
Executive Team members are:
• Eileen Goodman, partner and director of Interior Design and executive vice president;
• Brian Tibbs, partner and director of Nashville Operations, plus managing partner;
• David King, partner and CFO remains in this position; and
• Allen Schaffer, principal and director of Sustainable Design, will now divide his time between sustainable design and a new role of COO.
