President | Architect
Brian Quinn graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Architecture from Kent State University in 1996. He started with ADA Architects right out of college as a drafter working on Cleveland-area grocery stores.
Over the years he moved into public works and gained significant experience in the field visiting construction sites, holding project meetings, and learning construction administration for various local school district capital improvement projects. These lessons allowed him to understand the bigger picture of what it takes to run a project from concept to opening. After working on numerous public works projects, Brian was assigned to a Project Manager role in the Retail and Child Care sectors, where he honed his leadership skills and built long standing relationships with his clients.
After spending years running successful projects, Brian was promoted to Client Manager and ended up building a large staff and managing a significant book of business on a national scale. It was this experience that led him to what he felt like was his calling. Leading people, teaching them to grow and thrive, building relationships, and big picture strategy is what he enjoys. The business of architecture.
In 2021, Brian eagerly embraced the opportunity to purchase the business with this longtime friend and coworker, Jim Kassay, and became President and CEO of ADA Architects. He’s leading the firm into the future and continue the growth ADA Architects has accomplished thus far.
