International Strategies Leader



Carson leads our firm’s international practice and is a director of our international entity, CannonDesign International, Private Limited. He is responsible for driving our firm’s transition from being a  100+ year-old US firm with international clients to a truly global firm with nearly 1,000 professionals across 15 interconnected offices. Strategically, Carson establishes firm direction for near- and long-term goals that elevate the CannonDesign brand internationally. He has developed our international design practice with teams in North America, India and the United Arab Emirates, and partners with clients in the Gulf Cooperation Council of Arabic States, India, the Caribbean and the European Union.

Regarded for his entrepreneurial vision as well as the ability to lead and inspire others, Carson is responsible for setting the strategic direction for multiple markets internationally, including health, commercial, higher education, science and technology and mixed-use.

The greatest joy of my professional life is partnering with clients across the globe; my passion is to create and operationalize contextually sensitive solutions that advance development and contribute to improving life quality.  With our international practice, I particularly enjoy supporting our teams’ relentless engagement to translate global best practices into regionally applicable outcomes anchored in compassion, the latest intelligence, and industry innovations.
