HERBERT B. ROTH, FAIA AND JEFFREY L. SHEPPARD,
AIA CHOSEN AS DENVER BUSINESS JOURNAL'S 2011 "POWER BOOK"
Co-Founders of Denver-based Roth Sheppard Architects Join 12 Other Industry Power Book Winners as "Metro Denver's Top Business Newsmakers"
DENVER, Colorado—October 28, 2011—Roth Sheppard Architects, the Denver-based award-winning AIA-Denver and AIA-Colorado '2010 Firm of the Year' known for designing some of Colorado's most popular restaurants, fast-casual eateries and retail spaces, as well as many of the most progressive law enforcement and municipal facilities across the West, today announced their acceptance of the Denver Business Journal's coveted top Power Book award in the Architecture category.
Design Principal Jeffrey L. Sheppard, AIA accepted the award on behalf of himself and his partner Herbert B. Roth, FAIA. Both were also designated as "industry leaders" and profiled in the Power Book print edition released on October 21st.
The annual Denver Business Journal Power Book features the publication's top business newsmakers of the previous year. Editor Neil Westergaard states, "The Power Book is an exclusive look at business leaders in 13 industry categories who made news in the last year, or who, in our judgment, otherwise deserve recognition for their most recent business accomplishments."
Westergaard adds, "Most of the profiles you'll read in [our] special [Power Book] section are about companies thriving amid the unique economic challenges we face today. Others are about those whose businesses were radically changed by recent events."
Roth and Sheppard learned about their awards as their names were announced at the Denver Business Journal's Power Book award ceremony on Thursday, October 20th at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Denver. More than 450 of Denver's most recognized business leaders attended the luncheon.
"What an extraordinary honor this is. When Herb and I launched our firm 28 years ago with no work and no clients, we never could have imagined this level of recognition by our peers in the business community nearly three decades later," states Sheppard. "We are grateful that our terrific clients, our commitment to innovating great solutions and our passion for creating truly inspirational architecture has carried our talented team of designers through the recession with some spectacular built projects now in active use across Colorado and the Western U.S."
Co-founder Roth adds, "Although the architecture we create is often very visible, the process of making architecture is usually quite insular and quiet, which means that our long hours and commitment to excellence can go unnoticed. That's why this award is so important to us personally. It tells us that our efforts have not gone unrecognized by the community leaders we work hard to serve every day with the very best of our professional skills and design talents."
The actual Power Book takes the form of a 40-page tabloid insert within the Denver Business Journal's October 21-27, 2011 edition.
