Hennebery Eddy Architects has welcomed Kim Davis as its Chief Financial Officer and Business Manager. Davis brings more than 20 years of professional accounting, finance, and operations leadership, including financial analysis and reporting, forecasting, budgeting, and financial modeling. She manages and implements strategic and day-to-day business and financial operations of the firm. Working closely with the leadership team, she is responsible for financial administration and management, firm-wide project financial management oversight, corporate operations, risk management, and oversight of the firm’s administrative team and human resources.

“Kim’s experience and skills are a strong match for the firm as we shape our strategic plan for Hennebery Eddy’s ongoing evolution and growth,” said Tim Eddy, FAIA, firm president.

Davis is a Certified Public Accountant and previously served as CFO for the Oregon Liquor Control Commission and as vice president of finance for Pacific Crest Securities. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Florida Southern College and a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration from Saint Leo University.

Deepening the firm’s commitment to community engagement and civic service, associate principal Andrew Smith, AIA, has been appointed to the City of Portland Historic Landmarks Commission. As commissioner, Smith will advise on historic preservation matters and help develop design guidelines for Portland’s historic districts. Smith’s 25 years of experience as an historical architect emphasizes an understanding of historic rehabilitation techniques and practical application of the U.S. Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties. He prioritizes finding sensitive and appropriate design solutions when historic and cultural resources are involved, drawing upon his own planning, programming, design execution, and construction administration of both new construction and historic rehabilitation projects. Smith’s term on the Commission goes through 2022.

Smith helps lead Hennebery Eddy’s Historic Resources Group, guiding building owners through the financial incentive/tax credit process while also addressing a wide range of technical preservation issues. His recent work includes managing numerous project development studies, condition assessments, and preservation treatment recommendations for the General Services Administration. He joined the firm in 2015, is a LEED Green Associate and holds a Master of Architecture degree from Tulane University.
