SERA’s Principal group has promoted Mark Perepelitza to Principal, and 23 others to Associate. Seven additional staff members were honored with the newly-created leadership title Senior Associate.

As Director of Sustainability, Mark Perepelitza guides SERA’s overarching sustainability goals and collaborates with project teams on implementation and results tracking. Managing Principal Joe Pinzone commended Perepelitza for bolstering the firm’s sustainability capabilities through partnership with the Center for the Built Environment (UC Berkeley), and credited several successful projects with returning clients to Perepelitza’s relationship building. He joined SERA in 2012.

Leadership also announced new Senior Associates and Associates.

The Associates program at SERA recognizes high-performing and firm-focused individuals who add value to our practice and who are viable candidates for succession long term. Created this year to distinguish employees who have demonstrated all the values and contributions of Associates, the new Senior Associates title was given to seven employees with an additional aptitude or role in business development or operations.

SERA’s Associates make up the core of our firm, said Pinzone.

“They exemplify our employee-ownership culture, they’re demonstrated leaders, creative and talented, and absolutely central to our near-term wins and our long-term viability.”

Congratulations to these employees!
