Effective October 31, 2014, James B. Heller departs from his full-time role at KA
It is with warm wishes that KA Architecture announces James B. Heller’s departure from his full-time position at the firm. Jimmy has been a driving force in moving the firm into the national marketplace with his knowledge and expertise in retail design. Jimmy will continue his working relationship with KA providing consultation services at the request of KA’s clients.
Jimmy joined the firm in 1971 after he received his Bachelor of Architecture degree from The Ohio State University. Having been with the firm for more than 43 years, Jimmy served on the Board of Directors from 1980 until 2013, during which he served as President. As his career evolved, Jimmy became known as an architect of exceptional devotion to the firm’s clients. His unique abilities in land planning and site development, coupled with his meticulous attention to detail, led to the establishment of long-standing relationships within the retail development community.
We thank and congratulate Jimmy for his many years of service at KA!
KA's third generation leadership team - John G. Burk, Craig H. Wasserman, and Alan W. Siliko - will continue to guide the firm into the next 50+ years of delivering excellent client service. Bridging the gap between the firm's founder and current management team, Craig H. Wasserman will continue leading KA's client development and retention initiatives.
