A Celebration of Rick Burnight’s Accomplishments

With tremendous gratitude, we want to share with our clients and community that Rick Burnight, AIA, our former President/CEO, has transitioned from his full-time position at O’Connell Robertson to a Principal-level consulting role with our Firm. He will continue, in 2021, to work with us on several key projects with existing clients and in other special areas. His transition to retirement has been a thoughtful, planned process over the last several years during which time he has provided valued leadership and shared wisdom to our Senior Leadership Team. We recognized and celebrated the many contributions Rick has made to O’Connell Robertson at our staff meeting in December, and want to share some of those tributes with you.

In typical times, we would have an opportunity to gather clients, colleagues, friends and family in person to share the many stories and successes we’ve had under Rick’s leadership. Words hardly express the depth of appreciation that we at O’Connell Robertson have for Rick and his 30+ years of dedication, professionalism, knowledge, integrity and leadership.

The positive impact he has had on the clients and communities we serve through our focus on solutions-oriented design has been tremendous. To help us communicate the legacy Rick is leaving us with, and thank him for his many contributions, we created this video with the help of some of the colleagues and clients who know him best.
