Mark Adams RID, IIDA SmithGroup | Vice President | Workplace Studio Leader – Phoenix Office
Mark Adams describes his work style as "a leader, collaborator, psychologist and motivator, all within the context of a strong work ethic." He’s joking about the psychologist part, but it speaks to his broad role as Principal and Workplace Studio Leader for Interior Architecture in the Phoenix office. With more than 30 years of experience, Mark applies his award-winning design skills as director and principal designer, and project manager as well as his leadership skills as mentor to the Phoenix staff. He also has contributed his expertise as a presenter at Tradeline, NeoCon, International Facility Management Association (IFMA) and other national conferences, and as an editor to the American Institute of Architects Handbook of Professional Practice. In his free time, Mark likes to work on his golf game—come to think of it, another pursuit that combines skills and psychology.
