Dubrovsky and Eclipse promoted at Prellwitz Chilinski Assoc. to principals

Cambridge, MA - 2013-11-22

In recognition of their inspiring leadership, exemplary quality of work, and proven commitment to the future of our firm, Karen Dubrovsky, AIA, LEED AP and Mark Eclipse, AIA, LEED AP have been promoted to principal, with Nidhi John, AIA, LEED AP and Dan Molenkamp promoted to associate at Prellwitz Chilinski Associates (PCA).

"Through their actions, they have literally become principals and associates - we are simply acknowledging their efforts and commitment in officially naming them leaders of the firm," said David Chilinski, president of PCA.

Eclipse and Dubrovsky have helped the firm grow and adapt by assuming multiple roles - mentoring staff, managing administrative and business development functions and promoting the highest levels of design. Their long tenure has given them the ability to understand the past and future of the firm, and to help embody it.

Dubrovsky has the ability to see the big picture while making sure the details align on complex projects. She is a voice for PCA's vision with her work in developing PCA's brand strategy and identity. Her talent as a designer and her strong client relationships have made for successful projects at the Mass. Maritime Academy, the University of Conn., Healthworks and Legal Sea Foods.

Eclipse is a backbone for the design voice within PCA, ensuring that the initial vision is kept through the life of the project. He is an extraordinary mentor to our staff and has a true understanding of PCA's beliefs, lending his talents to major retail and mixed-use projects such as Legacy Place in Dedman, MarketStreet in Lynnfield and currently, Jackson Commons mixed use development in Roxbury and 105a South Huntington in Jamaica Plain.

John and Molenkamp have a proven track record of exceptional design and project management. Their holistic project approach - with Molenkamp's expertise in technology on large-scale retail, residential and public sector projects, and John's design strengths on mixed-use residential, historic renovation and student life spaces - have won many repeat clients who specifically request their inclusion on PCA teams. They are also helping to mentor staff and foster PCA's goals as a whole.

These promotions come on the heels of a year of amazing growth at PCA. After over 30 years in business, the office is approaching 50 staff which required a physical expansion of the office. New staff in 2013 include architects Rob Hagan, AIA, LEED AP; Charles Ragonese, RA; David LaCount, RA, LEED AP; Aaron Udy, RA, LEED AP; Shan Li, RA, LEED AP; and Jim Lee, AIA, LEED AP; interior designer Jill Goodwin-Aitken, IIDA, NCIDQ, LEEP AP; designer Courtney Drake, Associate AIA, LEED GA; marketing director Dagmar von Schwerin; administrative assistant Nicholas Joelli; and architectural intern, Kim Young.

"Talent is our greatest resource," said PCA's David Chilinski. "We're thrilled to recognize the people who have sustained our growth and make new success possible for our clients."
