PDR Elevates Three Leaders to its Austin Team

Design, architecture and consulting firm PDR is amplifying its presence in Austin by adding key leadership to its local team. Amy Collins, formerly an associate principal of the Houston office, has been named principal and director of design of the Austin office. She joins Shawna Hills who has been promoted to business development director. Emily Mehigan has also joined the firm as an associate and lead designer.

Headquartered in Houston, PDR has a diverse set of clients from oil and gas companies and technology innovators to fintech and law firms. PDR, which focuses on interior architecture, opened its Austin office in 2017. The team now includes 11 employees who have backgrounds in design, architecture, brand and project management.

“As the Austin area continues to grow, bringing in new companies with cross-generational workers, we look forward to growing and elevating our ability to create exceptional workplace experiences that are designed to evolve over time and bring value to clients in this market,” said Lauri Goodman Lampson, PDR president and CEO.
