SEATTLE — Bill Strong is retiring as a principal with Mahlum on March 1, after 25 years with the Seattle architecture firm.
Strong said he will explore job opportunities in the next few months.
He said he is not done with the architecture, engineering and construction industry.
“It's too exciting of a business, it's too fun,” he said. “Architecture has been my life. I can't leave it yet.”
Strong, 62, heads up Mahlum's marketing, and is one of the few architecture marketing professionals locally to be named a principal.
He helped establish Mahlum's Portland office, assisted in the marketing side of Mahlum's acquisition of McKinley Gordon Architects in 1993, and helped Mahlum develop a strategy to get into student housing in the late 1990s.
