CannonDesign is proud to announce David Hunt, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP has stepped into the role of Health Practice Leader. Bringing his proven record of success to our global health practice, David will be leading our team of healthcare experts in Southern California while advancing our brand in the region and developing new client relationships.
David joined CannonDesign last April when CannonDesign merged with gkkworks, and brings 30 years of experience in facility management, design and construction. A founding member of gkkworks, he played a significant role building the practice into one of the most successful integrated design firms in California, holding client leadership roles with numerous premier healthcare institutions – including Loma Linda University Medical Center, Kaiser Permanente and Pomona Valley Hospital. The combination of his nearly 30 years’ experience in Southern California, gkkworks’ robust healthcare team and CannonDesign’s firm-wide resources and healthcare subject matter expertise has created one of the country’s most powerful health groups on the West Coast. In his new role, David will continue to be deeply engaged with our health clients, while also focusing on innovation, integrated delivery methods and design excellence.
“Throughout my career, it’s been rewarding to partner with our clients and help them address their facilities challenges; what excites me most about the merger is our ability to address their larger-scale and transformational projects,” says David about his new role. “I’m proud to be leading an incredibly talented group, who will be instrumental in designing and delivering the future of healthcare in California.”
“We are thrilled that David is taking on this role,” says Abbie Clary, our Co-Director of Health. “As our Health Practice Leader in Southern California, David will be combining his experience within the industry in health design and construction, his California network, and his collaborative approach for building successful teams and strategies.”
