EYP Architecture & Engineering announced that Jeremy Oberc, AIA, LEED AP, has been promoted to managing principal of the company’s Boston office. Oberc will be responsible for leveraging the firm’s existing business development, operations and design leadership teams to bolster efficiency across all aspects of local business. In addition to office management, Oberc will collaborate with the local leadership team to enhance EYP’s external presence in Boston to clients, universities, recruits and the overall AE industry.

Oberc has over 19 years of experience with EYP, in the architectural design and project management of college and university buildings, as well as corporate facilities. His experience has provided him with in-depth knowledge of multi-disciplinary teams, guiding programming and strategic planning, design development, construction documentation and construction administration phases. His notable projects include the Old Chemistry Building Renovation at Stanford University, Integrated Science Complex at Carleton College, Smith Laboratories at the College of the Holy Cross and the Weidener Library Renovation at Harvard University.

“When I announced our plan to introduce a managing principal role in our Boston office, I was confident that we had great internal candidates,” said Scott Butler, PE, LEED AP, chief operating officer, EYP. “Jeremy’s proven ability to lead and successfully integrate design, operations, and business development in a national sector leadership role made him the ideal candidate to lead our reenergized effort to strengthen our presence in New England.”

Oberc joined EYP in 1999 and quickly advanced to the position of project director and has been promoted multiple times since. His recent promotion to managing principal will allow him to expand on his current operational focus for EYP’s higher education sector, to now include bolstering local business development, recruitment, brand recognition, and staff engagement and collaboration. 

“I’m excited to focus on the strategic development of the Boston office,” said Oberc. “I’m looking forward to creating a truly integrated high impact design culture for staff, and to leveraging our strengths in both architecture and engineering throughout the execution of our projects.”

Oberc received his Master of Business Administration and his Master of Architecture from the University of Illinois.
