Chip Pierson AIA

Senior Principal

Chip Pierson thrives on challenge. In the role of managing principal, he helped build Dahlin Group from a small design firm to a renowned specialist in master planning with a global presence. During the recession, he saw an opportunity to develop business in China and established the Beijing office. More recently, Chip has moved into the role of global development director focusing on international clientele and advising on strategic business growth opportunities.

A licensed architect in three states with expertise in master planned communities, affordable housing and high density residential, Chip also holds an MBA. He is a fervent traveler who embraces and enjoys experiencing different histories and cultures. These credentials are well-suited to his next challenge: to explore the world in search of opportunities for Dahlin Group's international design teams.
