Who

Albert Kahn is a diversified group of great people. We speak different languages and come from various countries. We have diverse backgrounds in architecture, engineering, planning, interior and landscape design and management. Some of us have worked here for over 30 years while others are just getting settled in.

We are mothers, daughters, fathers and sons. We are grandmothers and grandfathers as well as grandchildren and great grandchildren. A number of us have worked on projects that have won awards and international recognition thanks to the combined efforts of everyone at Kahn.

Our Board of Directors and Strategic Board provide the structure and guidance necessary to carry on the Kahn legacy. Throughout its history, Kahn has been in the capable hands of some of the industry’s best leaders and innovators and we’re confident tomorrow’s leadership could be starting today.

Traveling Architect

Cliff Montague, AIA, spent a short time as partner in a construction business before pursuing a career as an architect. He gravitated toward Kahn and never left - though he's been on the move nonetheless.

"I never thought in my career as an architect I would go to South America, Korea, Germany - all the places I've been, and all the people I know from those places."

Clift started in the Architectural Development Department and moved first to the firm's Project Management Department in a matter of a few years.

"The old master architects-builders - the people who really ran the process of the built environment - used to be philosophers, and business people. That's what Albert was; that's our legacy. We wanted to get back to that."

They wanted to talk "big picture" with their clients.
