As we enter our 105th year, there’s a lot to be thankful for. March 2023 is the 3rd anniversary of the pandemic and we have survived yet another historic disaster. STAD has seen the Great Depression, the Savings-and-Loan Crisis, 9-11, the 2008 Recession and now the pandemic/global upheaval, among many others. Our resilience speaks to the quality and adaptability of our staff and clientele. As the new Century advances, we continue our long-term strategy of promoting from within and are proud to announce that Ryoko Oda, AIA, is being elevated to the position of Associate. In addition to the many responsibilities she already handles, her efforts will now be expanded to include liaison with our new European collaborator, Mino Caggiula and his offices in Lugano and Milan.
