Capitalizing on our recent success in the northeast region, we're thrilled to welcome Moray to the team as the new market leader for the education practice in our New York City office. Moray will further bolster our credibility in core markets and expand our impact in others.

Moray brings more than 25 years of experience leading education projects, with expertise stretching across business development, project visioning, post-occupancy closeouts and all the phases in between. His deep experience driving design excellence by overseeing fiscal management, client coordination, budgeting and schedule control will allow him to be an asset to our practice.

“I’m very pleased to welcome Moray, (pronounced "Murray" for our American accents!), to NYC and our education practice," said Phil, who currently leads the education practice in the New York City office. “He brings complimentary experience to both the institutions and project types we focus on, with a concentration in health education. Leading with his commitment to balancing financial performance with design excellence, Moray shares great common ground in approach and attitude with our team.”

Moray joins us from SLAM (New York/Philadelphia) where he served as studio market lead and market champion for higher education and healthcare. His responsibilities included coordinating and managing the overall marketing activities for several market sectors, helping to advance the goals of the national firm core team and market leads.


  • There were so many factors that drew me to CannonDesign—from the people, to the culture, to the design excellence, to Living Centered Design…the decision was easy.
