Don Hensley, AIA, LEED AP

Director of Texas Strategy


CannonDesign is a great place to be entrepreneurial and grow, both in the work we do and in the relationships we form with our clients. I'm excited to work with our team to expand our expertise and client engagement while delivering the best solutions possible.

Don brings more than 30 years of professional experience in strategic planning, operations, marketing, design and project delivery to CannonDesign. He has developed and led employee engagement, culture-building and enterprise innovation programs that resulted in project wins and employee success in offices across the U.S. As Director of Texas Education Strategy, Don will work to expand the firm’s Texas market – specifically within education and S&T – leading practice and growth initiatives that realize CannonDesign’s strategic vision within the state. In addition to his work in business development and strategy, Don will also serve as a mentor to colleagues within the education market, and plans to continue his efforts in promoting thought leadership and insights via speaking opportunities and content creation on behalf of the firm.
