We are delighted to announce the elevation of five Principals to the Partner level to support growth, expand geographical and interdisciplinary perspectives, and diversify leadership.

Building upon an unprecedented year of growth and forty years of business, we welcome five new Partners–Lisa Esterrich, Rebecca Hinz, Chris Meier, Jeff Milliken, and Kitty Yuen.

Empowering Leadership

These individuals have been instrumental in championing our most significant projects and leading our studios in Indianapolis, Raleigh, Denver, Chicago, and Champaign. We recognize their professional successes and the unique talent and value they bring to our firm. This is the reason all five were promoted. These new Partners also embrace leadership diversity, and for the first time, the firm has three Partners who are also women.

We look forward to sharing our continued success with our clients and the entire RATIO team.

As we celebrate the professional successes of this group, we want to also acknowledge the step toward creating a more representational leadership team–a team that more fully reflects the composition of our 200-person firm,
