Laura Davis, AIA, IFDA and principal with HPD Architecture LLC was honored by the Dallas Business Journal with the noted 40 Under Forty award for 2012. Davis was recognized along with the other recipients during a reception and award ceremony at the Granada Theater in Dallas. The award winners are featured in a special section in the August 24th issue of the Dallas Business Journal.
The Dallas Business Journal’s annual 40 Under Forty awards honor executives and entrepreneurs who demonstrate “top of the line” excellence in their respective professions and personally demonstrate a commitment to the North Texas community. The winners were selected by judges representing the publication’s editorial staff and a panel of previous 40 Under Forty honorees.
Davis currently serves as vice president and director of marketing for HPD Architecture. As a principal, registered architect, and registered interior designer, she leads the way in which the firm approaches new projects, cultivates clients, and presents to and involves itself with the community. The latter is particularly reflective of Davis’s marketing role; the position to which she was appointed at the age of 33 just after her first year of business ownership with HPD’s other principals, Holly Hall, AIA, CAPS and Larry Paschall, AIA.
“What a privilege and an honor to be part of such a distinguished group of honorees,” said Davis. “Everyone I met was gracious and genuine and clearly radiated why they are successful in their respective professions.”
“Moreover, I felt the support from each person in the room and the true excitement for all of us in receiving this wonderful recognition,” added Davis.
