Bassenian Lagoni - Executive Leadership Team — Bassenian Lagoni has announced a management restructuring as part of a longer-term, ownership-transition plan.

Aram Bassenian, a 35-year veteran of the architecture industry, was appointed Chairman of the Board, and Carl Lagoni was named Chief Executive Officer. Jeff LaFetra and David Kosco will continue to serve as President and Director of Design, respectively.

“The adjustment is part of a carefully delineated plan to facilitate, in four years, a seamless ownership transition from myself and Carl to the next generation, Jeff and David,” explains Bassenian, who has also served as editorial director of four best-selling books on residential architecture.

“This transition assures our clients a continued commitment to leadership in design,” promises Bassenian, “and to our talented team, the continuing opportunity for growth and advancement.”
