Chief Operating Officer Barry Aarons retires from Architectus

Barry Aarons, our Chief Operating Officer and a key contributor to Architectus, has retired after 15 years of helping to steer the practice through a period of sustained growth.

In addition to leading operations and serving as a Board Director, Barry was known as a supportive colleague, a generous mentor, and a trusted advisor.

A steady hand and influential member of our leadership team, he played a central role in initiatives laying the groundwork for our expansion as a practice. Ultimately, that has shaped who we are today – a highly collaborative practice with deep expertise across multiple sectors and an unwavering commitment to design excellence.

“On behalf of the leadership team, I want to thank Barry for his dedication and his contributions over so many formative years,” said CEO Ray Brown, who worked alongside Barry for his entire tenure at Architectus. “We wish him all the best for a very happy retirement.”
