Craig Chinn on Expert Panel Discussion -- Secrets of AEC Career Advancement

COSTA MESA, CA--(Marketwired - October 16, 2015) - Architecture Design Collaborative's Founder Craig Chinn will be a panelist at Building Design+Construction's 5th Annual 40 Under 40 Leadership Summit in Chicago on October 15, 2015. "It is a huge honor to be invited to serve as an expert panelist," Chinn said. "As a past recipient of the 40 Under 40 award, I look forward to participating and meeting this year's winners. Hopefully, my experience in transitioning from a large firm to starting my own national firm will be of interest. The transition wasn't as smooth as I envisioned but, with the right team around me, my new company has grown and prospered." This year's conference theme is "Advancing Your Career". Chinn has seen his own advancement go from working as a new graduate, to being offered a partnership in a large firm, to starting a successful and growing national practice. His creativity and business acumen have been invaluable assets throughout his career, even fueling his company's expansion during the last devastating recession. "It has been an awesome adventure these past 13 years and I look forward to many more opportunities in the future," Chinn added.
