Recognizing measurable and qualitative contributions fundamental to the growth and evolution of the firm, Hennebery Eddy Architects has promoted marketing director Debbie Rogers to principal, architect Will Ives, AIA to associate principal, and interior designer Elyse Iverson, NCIDQ to associate.


Debbie Rogers, Principal, administers the marketing program for Hennebery Eddy, including strategic planning, business development and collateral design and production. Rogers has guided the firm’s focus on primary market sectors, deepening its portfolio of higher education, commercial, civic and cultural clients and projects. Her successful business development planning and strategy has directly contributed to the firm’s growth to more than 50 staff members and projects that range in scale from modest facility rehabilitations to new buildings over $175 million in construction value. As principal, Rogers will continue directing Hennebery Eddy’s marketing and business development, and will participate in the firm’s overall operations and management. Rogers joined Hennebery Eddy as marketing manager in 2004. She became an associate in 2008, rose to marketing director in 2012, and was promoted to associate principal in 2014.

With a focus on high-performance buildings, Will Ives, AIA, Associate Principal, has been instrumental in evolving the firm’s approach to applying renewable materials and energy and water efficiency measures. His projects include the Jake Jabs College of Business & Entrepreneurship at Montana State University, which achieved LEED Gold certification and a Montana AIA design award, and Our Lady of Montserrat Chapel at Seattle Preparatory High School, for which he served as project architect and which was recognized with a Wood Design Award from US WoodWorks and a national design award from the Interfaith Forum on Religion, Art and Architecture. Ives has designed a range of corporate workspace projects exploring emerging work styles. He is leading the design of the Yellowstone Youth Campus in Yellowstone National Park, which seeks to create a healthier, more culturally rich and ecologically restorative campus through the framework of the Living Building Challenge. Ives is a certified passive house consultant (CPHC). He joined Hennebery Eddy in 2011 and was promoted to associate in 2014.
