A Message to Our Clients and Partners About COVID-19

As we monitor and learn more about the spread of the novel coronavirus COVID-19, our CEO, Brad Lukanic, shares what CannonDesign is doing to protect our employees and their families while ensuring we continue to deliver for our clients and partners.

First and foremost, I hope you and your families are safe and well. The last few weeks have been unprecedented for all of us, to say the least.

I am writing this message to let you know that out of an abundance of caution, all CannonDesign employees across our 19 global offices are now working remotely at home. The health and wellness of our people and those who live in our communities is our top priority, and I believe it is important that our 1,000+ employees do our part to minimize the spread of COVID-19 as best we can.

Our firm has been preparing for a moment like this for several years; we have a robust business continuity plan in place and a technology infrastructure that supports virtual working across our entire practice. All to say, we do not anticipate this change impacting our ability to deliver for our clients and partners. If we foresee that changing in any way, you will be notified well in advance by the CannonDesign project leaders you work with every day. Communication and transparency is critical.

Although it is still too early to fully understand the impact this virus might have on the current way of life, I want you to know that our commitment to your organization is unwavering. We are in this together and fully committed to delivering the results you expect.

Thank you for everything you are doing to support your people and our communities. We will get through this together.

Best,

Brad Lukanic
