Boston – Approaching its 50th year in practice, the national architecture and interior design firm, Dyer Brown, recently announced the completion of a major transition of ownership and new roles for its three principals Brent Zeigler, Rachel Woodhouse, and Tara Martin.

This transition caps the recent evolution of Dyer Brown, beginning in 2016 when one of its longtime owners, Roger Shepley, AIA, announced he would be stepping back from day-to-day operations of the acclaimed design and services firm.

As of 2018, taking over as owners are Dyer Brown’s leaders Brent Zeigler, AIA, IIDA, president and director of design; Rachel Woodhouse, NCIDQ,LEED AP, director of operations; and Tara Martin, director of client services.

The three assumed their current firm leadership roles more than two years ago, and in the intervening time they have expanded the firm’s footprint, implemented several major initiatives, and added new staff to bring Dyer Brown to over 50 professionals. Through its offices and several functional divisions, Dyer Brown now offers its services nationwide to the hospitality, workplace, academic, and retail sectors.

Commenting on the latest news from Dyer Brown, the previous owner-stakeholder Roger Shepley, who led the firm for 13 of his 34 years with the firm, says, “A company has to move forward to keep building a record of success. With the vision and talents brought by Rachel, Tara, and Brent, Dyer Brown will continue its robust design leadership and skills in client development and management.”

Shepley added, “The good news is that they’re exactly the leaders that Dyer Brown needs in their growing and always competitive national markets.”
