Chris Doerschlag AIA, NCARB

Chief Executive Officer

As Chris was establishing his career with some of the country’s most respected architectural firms, he also was observing weaknesses in the building industry’s “standard operating procedures.” Driven to improve results, he began to envision ways to re-engineer the development process.

Taking the leadership role at WD in 1996, Chris focused the company on architecture and engineering services for national multi-unit retail. He believed that specializing would allow WD to fully understand client needs and problems, and thus enable WD to provide the most effective solutions.
