Vern Remiger is proud to announce Ownership transition at Remiger Design 

Key employees of Remiger Design have become owners of the firm. Denny Crain, Courtney Padgitt and Colleen Nigro are now majority owners. Additionally, Mike Favazza Jr. retains his minority ownership stake. The new ownership structure took place on Jan. 1, 2021.

Vern Remiger, taking on a new role as Founder, remains with us moving forward. Vern will continue to play a key role in maintaining relationships with existing clients and supporting business development. While the ownership transition for Remiger Design took place over the last few years, “it cements the final phase of our succession planning to ensure that we maintain the firm’s identity and culture.” Before starting his own firm, Vern’s experience included 25 years as the chief architect and chief operating officer at his previous firm.

Denny, Courtney and Colleen become Managing Principals of Remiger Design. Mike continues as Chief Financial Officer with more than 18 years of experience in both public and private accounting. Denny and Colleen will oversee the firm’s planning and architectural services, while Courtney spearheads interior design. The new ownership team will continue leading and growing the firm in their respective roles. 

“I’m thrilled to see such a core group willing to maintain our culture of not being the biggest firm but focused on finding the right solutions to creatively solve our clients’ unique design challenges.”                

– Vern Remiger
