PHOENIX, ARIZ.– Cawley Architects continues to hone the firm’s leadership skills and professional growth with the promotion of three senior project managers to the title of Associate.

Earning the new appointment are RoseAnn Linsmeyer, Justen Cassidy and Gordon DuSell.

“Our Associates are our future leaders in management and innovation, and we look to them to become role models by promoting mentorship, fellowship, advocacy and service as well as possessing excellent architectural skills,” said Sherman Cawley, founder of the company.

Linsmeyer, who has been with Cawley for 14 years, was promoted to Associate/Interior Designer/Senior Project Manager. She has recently broadened her role to become the interior designer for all of the firm’s projects and will represent the firm in project meetings and presentations.

A native of Appleton, Wisconsin, Linsmeyer earned a BA from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. She is actively involved with the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) Southwest Chapter and serves on the Pride Awards event committee.

Cassidy was promoted to Associate/Senior Project Manager. He has been with Cawley for 5 years. He recently became the firm’s newest registered architect, a dream he has had since he was 16 years old. As a new Associate, he possesses an exceptional attitude and an ability to perform with a “can do” attitude to make himself and the firm successful.

A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Cassidy earned his architectural degree (BA) from the Kent State University College of Architecture and Environmental Design. Cassidy is actively involved with NAIOP Arizona, CRENAB and the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB).

DuSell was promoted to Associate/Construction Administration Manager. He has been with Cawley Architects for 4 years. He will be responsible for providing and maintaining the highest levels of architectural quality and innovation.

He will support directors in project management and provide direction on design and construction matters. As a new Associate he will also advance Cawley’s technical and professional proficiency.

Born in Aurora, Illinois, DuSell was raised in and around Syracuse, New York. He earned a Master’s degree in architecture from the Tulane School of Architecture. DuSell is actively involved with the Construction Specifiers Institute (CSI).

“An Associate at our firm is a senior level project architect or manager that we recognize for his or her exceptional value and contribution, not only to the firm but also to the architectural profession and the community,” Cawley said. “Associates are respected and admired in their ability to perform unique functions in our organization and are regarded as integral to our companies’ long-term success.”
