Taylor Design, an employee-owned architectural, interior design, and design strategy firm has elevated Kevin Hinrichs, AIA, LEED AP, principal and Northern California office leader, to the firm’s new president. D. Randy Regier, AIA, ACHA, who served as president for the past 16 years, becomes chairman of the board. This leadership transition takes advantage of the skills and strengths of Hinrichs and Regier, and builds on their experience working together.

Hinrichs joined Taylor Design in 2013 and has 20 years of experience in architecture and design. In his role as president he will focus on the firm’s operations and infrastructure, including financial planning, business activities, organizational performance, and daily operations. Both Hinrichs and Regier will continue to serve in project leadership positions as well.

Regier joined the firm in 1994 and became its second president in 2003 when Linda Taylor, AIA, transitioned to chairman of the board. Regier will continue to focus on key client relationships, new business development, and special projects within the firm. Under his leadership, Taylor Design has grown from one office location to five across California, and expanded beyond healthcare design to include the higher education and science and technology market sectors.
