Founders of Architecture for Humanity Step Down, Launch Five-year Plan

“It's great to see something you started evolve into an institution. We are excited about the future of the organization and plan to continue lending support in whatever ways we can.” Kate Stohr, co-founder

Architecture for Humanity founders, Kate Stohr and Cameron Sinclair, will step down after 15 years of leading the San Francisco based non-profit organization to focus on new ventures. Upon leaving, they have drafted a five year strategic vision, reiterating the organization's purpose and needed areas of improvement. Matt Charney, Board President of Architecture for Humanity, is confident that 'Kate and Cameron's vision and years of dedication leaves the organization in a solid place." To further expand operations, board directors will begin an international search for a new executive director by the end of September.

Kate Stohr, who currently serves as Board Advisor to Architecture for Humanity, will be leaving the organization on September 30, 2013 to return to her career in television and web production. Cameron Sinclair, who currently serves as Executive Director, will actively lead the agency until April 6, 2014, the organization’s 15th Anniversary. After his transition, Sinclair will continue to support the organization and will focus on his own design and community development work.
