We are pleased to announce Amanda Hendrick has joined CannonDesign as the Office Practice Leader for our Dallas office.

A true Texan at heart, Amanda brings a wealth of experience garnered throughout her career in the state. With her strategic skills, a knack for business development, and a talent for building brands through industry and community engagement, she'll focus on growing our Dallas office's presence across North Texas. She’ll forge new client connections in our core markets, help elevate our brand, mentor our team and champion bold ideas that can benefit the entire Firm.

Formerly at Corgan, Amanda played a pivotal role in driving strategy, growth, and business development on both a national and local scale, particularly within the commercial sector. Her deep knowledge of Texas and its ever-evolving landscape positions her as a valuable asset in harnessing design to tackle the state's challenges head-on.

“Dallas continues to be a center of growth in Texas, with industries from healthcare to education to technology continuing to surge,” said Amanda. “I look forward to growing CannonDesign’s presence in North Texas and bringing its Living-Centered Design ethos to relationships and projects going forward.” 

With about 120 employees in Texas, the Dallas office has legacy relationships with Texas Christian University, Texas Children’s Hospital, Texas Woman's University and more. Our team most recently secured the new Terrell Behavioral Health Hospital project, set to replace the existing hospital that opened in 1885. This replacement hospital, estimated to start construction this year, will have 250 beds, with separate state of the art therapeutic units for adults and adolescents.

In addition, we have partnered with The Ladder Alliance, a nonprofit located in Fort Worth, Texas, that assists survivors of domestic violence and low-income women, on the renovation of its Success Store. We were able to help The Ladder Alliance redesign their Success Store through Open Hand Studio, our incubator for public-interest design.

Outside of work, she volunteers her time with the North Texas Food Bank, and other charitable organizations. She enjoys reading, golfing, traveling, and time with family.
