Brad Lukanic, CEO of CannonDesign headshot

Brad grew up as the son of a contractor and never recognized a silo between builders and architects. Today, he oversees our global design firm that encompasses architecture, engineering, consulting, physical asset management, software solutions and modular design.

He harnesses innovative and ground-breaking ideas within CannonDesign and drives forward a firm—founded in 1945—that continues to accelerate, command and propel design as a cross-disciplinary disrupter. 


  • Producing our firm's strategic framework that considers a changing world by understanding the future, then planning for it

  • Creating environments that positively enhance the design process for lifelong learning and discovery


  • Partnering with our people to do more, to see where (and how far) we can take this firm together
  • Believing in the power of design
  • Caring deeply about the planet he's leaving to his three curious sons
