CJMW Celebrates New Leadership

CJMW Celebrates New Leadership

CJMW Architecture and Interior Design 
is proud to announce new firm leaders and company-wide promotions as we transition ownership internally among an expanded group from among our talented team. 


The new leadership team of four managing principals is drawn from current Board members and includes Kathleen Warner, who assumes the role of firm president and retains her role as Director of Interior Design; John Drinkard, the new Chief Financial Officer (CFO), who retains his role as Chairman of the Board; Mike Griffin is the Director of Branch Offices, and Jeff Sowers is the Director of Architecture.

Coinciding with a transformational renovation in our Raleigh office and with our Winston-Salem and Lynchburg’s offices’ move to new locations, we celebrate the renewed creativity and breadth of perspective these changes bring in support of our mission to deliver great design and exceptional client service.
