Meyer Architects, the architecture entity of Meyer, is proud to announce its national certification as a Minority Owned Business by the EMSDC, a regional certifying partner of the National Minority Supplier Development Council.  

Meyer principals Phil Burkett, AIA, and Alicia Karr are the majority shareholders of Meyer Architects, in partnership with Dan King, AIA and Mike Stanczak, AIA. The four principals assumed ownership of the firm in 2022 from founder George Wilson, AIA.

The MBE Certification allows Meyer Architects to help advance the supplier diversity goals of its clients, while also providing renowned architectural services in the workplace, life science, healthcare, higher education, senior living, and multi-family industries. 

“As a certified MBE, we are continuing to advocate for diversity and the advancement of underrepresented populations in the architecture field,” said Phil Burkett, who serves as both an AIA Philadelphia Board Member and a member of the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce Diverse Procurement Collaborative. 

“Obtaining Meyer Architects' Minority Business Enterprise Certification is an important step in Meyer's evolution. Through it, we continue our commitment to diversity, equity, and belonging - and look forward to building partnerships with clients and other MBE-certified businesses,” said Alicia Karr.
