David Carlino

Principal, Chief Financial Officer

Dave Carlino

Dave isn’t your typical numbers guy. Yes, he oversees our financial planning, budgeting, banking and financial operations. But he also works with our executive leaders to diversify our business offerings and launch new ventures. His ability to meld visionary and practical thinking makes him a critical voice in every decision our firm makes about future planning and strategy.

Dave has been with CannonDesign for nearly three decades, guiding our growth from a regional A/E practice into a global design solutions firm. He represents our firm at the American Institute of Architect’s CFO’s Large Firm Round Table and is a member of the Financial Executives Institute, a professional organization representing more than 8,000 corporations throughout North America. He is a leader in educating and assisting clients in the financing mechanism of building construction, including coordinating financing and bonding opportunities.
