SSA Promotions!

Principal, Steve Sutherland, is pleased to announce the promotion of Briana Cox and Christian Harris to the position of Associate Principal.

Briana began her landscape architectural career in 2005 and joined SSA in 2009. She progressed from working first as a landscape architect, moving into the position of team leader, then project manager, and now as Associate Principal. She holds a USGBC Certification as a LEED AP and serves as the team resource related to all LEED-certified projects. Her years of experience, design skills, leadership qualities, and ability to manage large, complex projects make her well suited to co-lead the firm with Steve and Christian.

Christian began his landscape architectural career in 2004 and joined SSA in 2014. He has continually demonstrated his strengths in all things technical with construction, construction administration and complex permitting and approval processes, including DSA and OSHPOD. Christian began his time at SSA as a landscape architect, and by demonstrating his leadership qualities, has advanced to the position of Associate Principal where he will co-lead the firm with Steve and Briana.

Christian and Briana will co-lead the SSA team in strategic planning, business development, innovative project design and public outreach processes, accurate budget development and cost control, continued development of new client relationships, as well as maintaining existing relationships. They are committed to the core principles of the firm and will continue providing a high level of client service and ensuring project quality control while maintaining SSA’s role as a leader in the profession.

Please join Steve in congratulating Briana and Christian in their new leadership roles.
