As the year winds down, Goody Clancy is gearing up for an era of growth and exploration – including the addition of two talented and devoted people to our group of Senior Associates. George Perkins and Jefferson Poole have worked at Goody Clancy for over a decade, cultivating design and management skills, client relationships, and contributing to many of our most transformative hallmark projects. Congratulations to Jefferson and George – we wouldn’t be us without you! Read on for full bios of our new Senior Associates.
