Bronwyn Charlton has been elevated to Senior Associate and will serve as the Chapel Hill Studio Leader and the primary point of contact for projects within the Triangle Region.

In parallel with Charlton’s promotion, Melissa Wolter‘s role within the Chapel Hill Studio has been strategically restructured to align with her strengths and the evolving needs of the firm.
