We are pleased to recognize the promotion of Mike Anderson, AIA, NCARB, to principal. Since joining Curtis Miner Architecture (CMA) in 2000, Mike has put his significant design and project management skills to use on a variety of commercial projects including mixed-use, education, automotive, multi-family, retail, and light industrial projects.
Mike joined the firm while attending Utah Valley University. He was pursuing an associate degree in Science and Drafting Technology. “The professor pulled me and a few of my classmates out individually to inform us that a new local promising architectural firm was seeking architectural drafters,” Mike shares. He applied and interviewed shortly thereafter and was hired. He went on to receive Bachelor of Science and Master of Architecture degrees from the University of Utah and went on to receive his architecture license.
“Mike embodies the values, culture, and philosophy on which CMA was founded,” shares Curtis Miner. “He was a natural fit and has truly embraced and fostered a culture that values excellent design, outstanding service, mentorship, and accountability.”
His promotion reinforces the goal of CMA leadership to create and sustain a company that lives in perpetuity. “The firm is creating opportunities for employees to learn, grow, and mentor future firm leaders,” Mike explains. He has helped lead the firm’s focus on mentorship and was instrumental in formalizing a long-term vision of team member mentorship and growth. In addition to shaping CMA business practices, Mike will continue to advocate for elevating a sense of personal accountability and stretching to reach company goals through training and staff interviews.
He will bring his experience and firm longevity to help influence, implement, and sustain CMA business practices and the field of architecture at large.
