Hoefer Welker is proud to announce that Chris Andersen has been promoted to Chief Financial Officer. Under his leadership as a partner within our firm, we have seen annual revenue and staff size more than triple in recent years, even through the economical downturns. Beyond this significant local growth, Chris has played a pivotal part as we embark on our first venture into national growth with the recent addition of an office in Dallas. He led our efforts to find office space that is both appropriate for this start-up and flexible enough to allow for anticipated growth.
One of the largest differentiators making Chris exceptional in his role as our CFO is the distinct combination of his educational and professional backgrounds. In addition to holding an MBA, Chris has also been a licensed architect for the past 16 years. Having practiced as an architect, he has a unique perspective of the industry giving him the ability to effectively navigate, and merge, the distinct black and white lines of accounting and the gray areas found in the always subjective world of architecture.
