HDG Architects announces changes to its leadership and ownership team as well as a rebrand.

After leading and managing the firm he founded in late 1992, Kevin Hayes of Mt. Lebanon has stepped down from his role as president. However, he will continue as a principal and assist with client projects as well as focus on mentoring the new leadership team and pursuing strategic marketing opportunities.

Mark Duane of Peters Township has been named the company’s president. He has been an industry leader and with the firm for two decades. He will be joined by new officers and shareholders Rob Rensi and Andrew Campanaro on the leadership team. Rensi, who resides in Upper St. Clair, and Campanaro, of Mt. Lebanon, have been with HDG for more than 12 years each and have been integral to almost every project on which the firm has worked.

From a branding perspective, the firm will no longer use The Hayes Design Group name but instead employ HDG Architects.

According to Duane, “The leadership and branding changes will position us for continued growth and success in the future. Our new branding better represents the firm we are today with multiple owners. It also focuses on our team and culture and less on one person.”

Hayes added, “It’s time for Mark, Rob and Andrew to be recognized for everything they have done over many years and allow them to lead us forward into the future. I look forward to working with the new leadership team in serving our clients as we always have for many more years to come.”

The firm is celebrating its 30th anniversary and was started as The Hayes Design Group – Architects, a one-person enterprise that has grown to almost 20 employees. It is headquartered in Robinson Township.
