75th Corgan-iversary

DALLAS – If Jack Corgan could see his architecture firm now, he’d probably marvel that the more things have changed since he founded his business in 1938, the more things have stayed the same.

What began as a two-man undertaking focused on movie theater and drive-in design in the southwest has certainly changed; Corgan now employs a staff of 330 in offices internationally and boasts a diverse range of projects. What has stayed the same, however, is the company’s dedication to helping others in the community, a belief cherished by the firm’s founding father and his successor, C. Jack Corgan.
     Although Corgan already donates 1,400 hours of community service each year, the company wanted to celebrate its 75th anniversary by doing even more. To recognize this milestone, Corgan launched a year-long community service project called “75 Days and 75 Ways.”
    “From Corgan’s earliest days, our founder set a standard for giving back to the communities in which we live and work,” David Lind, Corgan chairman and managing principal, says. “Launching 75 different, successful charitable projects in one year will require a major commitment from every employee in every office, but what better way to celebrate our history than to make an even bigger effort to touch people’s lives and improve the neighborhoods in which we work?”
    Bob Morris, Corgan’s president and CEO, agrees. “It’s impossible to survive, much less thrive, in 75 years of business without great clients and the support from our associates in the industry. Taking the opportunity, year after year, to grow and innovate is what keeps people – and companies like ours – young, nimble and vital. We are thrilled to kick off the next 25 years by giving back to the people in our communities who enrich us each and every day.”
    Ranked among the top architectural design firms internationally, Corgan has locations in Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Phoenix, Beijing and Dubai. –mjm
