Gensler CEO switch?


What's going on at Gensler? I noticed they announced new CEOs last Fall. Jordan Goldstein and Julia Simet. But last week they announced a new woman is stepping in as Co-CEO with Jordan. What happened to Julia? Is the firm stable? I am interviewing for a position there now so any insight would be helpful.

If you're not interviewing for a leadership position (which is highly unlikely cuz youd not be posting on archinect), id say it really doesnt matter who becomes CEO of Gensler lol

Is Gensler stable? Is the Pope a catholic?

That doesn't mean anything. Succession planning happens at every firm.

As others have said, unless you are applying for co-CEO, events at the top of Gensler are not going to affect you as a new hire in branch office somewhere.

The thing you should legitimately fear is being laid off if a significant business downturn dries up the workload in the studio you are assigned to.  Gensler has no problem doing mass layoffs if they deem it necessary.

If one isn't a Gensler employee, whomever happens to be leading that firm matters to Architecture about to the same degree as whomever is leading California Pizza Kitchen matters to the culinary world...
