Kahler Slater Is Pleased To Announce Two New Executive Team Members

We are excited to announce that Glenn Roby, AIA and Al Krueger, AIA, ACHA, EDAC have both been promoted to the role of Executive Vice President (EVP) at Kahler Slater. In recognition of their leadership abilities and passion for advancing the firm, they are formally joining the executive team of the firm, which includes CEO’s Jim Rasche and George Meyer, along with Kelly Gaglione, EVP. This five-person team is charged with guiding the future direction, cultivating the culture, and day-to-day management of the firm. Glenn and Al will add this new EVP role to their current responsibilities of leading key practice areas of the firm and their direct work with clients.

Jim Rasche said, “Glenn and Al recognize the Architect’s role in design is changing and that our clients are seeking strategic partners to help them realize their visions and achieve powerful results. Glenn and Al’s clients have told us that they bring key leadership to their critically important ongoing relationships and projects.” George Meyer noted, “Glenn and Al also have made significant contributions to the executive leadership of Kahler Slater. By promoting them to EVP’s we welcome their inclusion at the executive table, planning for the future of Kahler Slater and the future of our industry.”

Al Krueger is leading implementation of Kahler Slater’s vision for the future of our healthcare practice, expanding the firm’s reach into Canada and is overseeing our Mid-Atlantic expansion strategy, including the opening of the Kahler Slater Richmond office, building upon a foundation of incredible client relationships and outstanding designs. Glenn is leading a rapidly growing team expanding Kahler Slater’s corporate, housing, hospitality, and retail markets, including some of the firm’s most high-profile projects; for example: Milwaukee’s two most recent Class A office towers, BMO Tower on Water St. and 833 East Michigan; as well as multiple hotels throughout Milwaukee. Glenn also leads significant firm initiatives designed to improve the way we deliver our services and develop our people professionally.

Glenn brings a great deal of knowledge and value to our projects, many of which have been some of Irgens’ most prominent Milwaukee projects including 833 East Michigan and the new BMO Tower on Water St. that is under construction. I am very pleased to see Glenn being recognized for his leadership abilities and am also glad he will continue to work with us on our projects.”

I have worked with Al Krueger for 13 years, in that time we completed multiple projects including a transformational new hospital campus for Sentara Martha Jefferson in Charlottesville Virginia which, when complete, was voted America’s Most Beautiful Hospital in the Soliant Health nation-wide competition. Al is a great representative of Kahler Slater, an excellent leader and also a friend. I congratulate him on this well-deserved promotion.”
