LEO A DALY is pleased to announce that Paul Coleman, AIA, DBIA, LEED, NCARB, has joined the firm as vice president and managing principal in Los Angeles.

He shares LEO A DALY’s deep commitment to client service and has direct experience leading an integrated design practice in this regional climate, making him an extremely valuable asset to LEO A DALY and to our clients,” said Steve Lichtenberger, AIA, president of LEO A DALY.
“Working as a competitor to LEO A DALY in Los Angeles since 1989, I’ve always been drawn to the classic sensibility, deep client focus and unmatched quality of design from LEO A DALY. I’m thrilled to be stepping into Roy Follmuth’s shoes here, and very excited to leverage the size and creative firepower in the firm to grow the L.A. studio, become more visible, and contribute to the design dialogue that is so relevant in the global design hotspot of L.A.” Coleman said.

The multiphase hospital transformation, which Follmuth won as managing principal, is the largest project in our 105-year history. He will also assist in directing LEO A DALY’s global megaprojects practice.
