Aspen, Colorado (July 26, 2018) – Forum Phi, Aspen-based Architecture firm, is proud to announce that they are one of only two local firms chosen by PSMJ (Professional Services Management Journal) Resources, Inc. to be a member of the 2018 Circle of Excellence. PSMJ Resources, Inc. is the world’s leading authority on the effective management of architecture, engineering, and construction firms.

PSMJ designed the Circle of Excellence to highlight successfully managed firms that demonstrate outstanding achievements in areas such as profitability, overhead management, cash flow, productivity, business development, staff growth, and turnover.

“Each year, the Circle of Excellence firms come from all corners of the A/E space. This diversity demonstrates that success isn’t defined by a specific firm size, location, or market niche,” says Frank A. Stasiowski, FAIA, Founder, and CEO of PSMJ Resources. “The top-performing firms just think and act differently from the rest of the pack to achieve extraordinary business performance. The firms recognized by the Circle of Excellence set the standard for outstanding and sustainable business results. Some firms have been in this prestigious group year after year!”

With data from 361 A/E firms across the United States and Canada, PSMJ’s 2018 A/E Financial Performance Benchmark Survey Report is the go-to industry resource for firms aiming to increase cash flow, lower overhead, and improve overall financial results. Now in its 38th edition, the comprehensive report provides the most valuable research and insight available for making critical decisions that impact the success of a firm.

“We are so honored to be awarded PSMJ’s Circle of Excellence for the second year in a row,” said Jennifer Olson, Partner at Forum Phi. “To run a successful and sustainable business while promoting a dynamic office culture and providing our clients with exceptional design is our goal. This Circle of Excellence award highlights the achievements of our talented team and their ability to design beautiful spaces within the client’s budget.”
