EYP‘s board of directors has named Scott Butler as its new president and CEO, succeeding Tom Birdsey, who retired from these roles effective December 31, 2018.

A 41-year EYP veteran, Birdsey will continue to serve as chairman of the Board, working closely with Butler, as he has over the past year, to transition the firm to its new leadership structure.

Butler, a design professional with more than 30 years of senior executive experience with integrated A/E firms, joined EYP in January 2018 and served as chief operating officer. Prior to joining EYP, Butler served as CEO of CUH2A and, most recently, as director of international operations at HDR.
