Back to Our People

David M. Carlino 

Executive Director, Finance; Chief Financial Officer


What I admire most about CannonDesign is our ability to continually transform our practice. We don’t become complacent—we understand where the industry is going and continually recalibrate our practice to ensure we stay ahead.

As our executive director of finance and chief financial officer, David is responsible for our overall financial planning, budgeting, banking and financial operations. He serves on the strategic planning committee, contributes to firm-wide strategies and acquisitions, and communicates extensively with firm leadership and operational managers on financial issues. He is a leader in educating and assisting clients in the financing mechanism of building construction, including coordinating financing and bonding opportunities.

David also represents CannonDesign 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 an executive board member of Junior Achievement of Western New York, Inc. and serves on the President’s Advisory Board of Niagara University and Medaille College’s Advisory Board.
