Oct 25, 2019

ROCHESTER, N.Y., October 25, 2019 – Mitchell Design Build recently announced the naming of Spencer Read as the new company President. Read was serving as Vice President and Senior Project Manager prior to taking on this new role, a transition that had been in process for over five years.

“There is no better person to lead Mitchell Design Build than Spencer,” said Rick Mitchell, Mitchell Design Build’s Founder and former President. “He is a proven leader with impressive architectural skills, business insight, and the ability to bring people together. His vision for how clients’ projects move from concept to completion and the support he offers while in that process is exactly what Mitchell needs as the company enters its next chapter of continued innovation and growth.”

Since joining the company in 2005, Read has spearheaded major projects within the company’s portfolio, most notably the creation of the Van Bortel Subaru car dealership in Henrietta and the relocation of Rochester Midland Corporation. His various responsibilities have included site and building design, building code compliance prep work, estimating, scheduling, and project and construction management. Under his direction and supervision, these and other projects were completed on time and under budget.

“Mitchell Design Build is outstanding in our field given the incredible amount of expertise, length of tenure, and outright professionalism found in our team. I am honored and enthusiastic about this new position, as this has been something that we have been working and planning for quite some time and it feels great to finally achieve it,” said Read upon taking up his new role. “We look forward to continuing to provide industry-leading architecture and construction projects through our truly unique design-build process.”

Mitchell Design Build also announced that Brad Humberstone, previously Project Architect with LaBella Associates, will assume a new role on the Executive Team as Director of Architecture. Humberstone’s position aims to grow and manage design work at Mitchell Design Build while working closely with current staff members to achieve continued controlled growth.
