Deutsch will build upon the momentum previously created by Rachel Schwarz, who retired after nearly six and half years of service to the firm. She is responsible for developing and generating new business opportunities, managing the RFP delivery process and leading all marketing initiatives. She was the sales and marketing manager at a branding and wayfinding firm in Cleveland for 11 years prior to joining Braun & Steidl.
“We are thrilled to have Erica and Michael join the firm and are confident that they will be key contributors to our future growth and service to our clients,” President Chas Schreckenberger said.
Kessel arrives with more than 10 years experience in the A|E|C industry. Most recently he worked with a Design/Build Construction firm in Northeast Ohio. In the last 10 years Michael has gained a wide and diverse range of experience through part-time internships during his studies, as well as full time work after earning his Bachelor of Science and Master’s degrees in Architecture from Kent State University. He has worked on project types ranging from warehouse improvements to intensive care units, all the way to reviewing shop drawings for the United States Capitol Building Visitors Center. As one of 12 staff architects, Michael will be working on a variety of project types, putting his experience to work for Braun & Steidl clients.
