PERFORMA ARCHITECTS & ENGINEERS ANNOUNCES LEADERSHIP APPOINTMENTS
De Pere, WI – Sept. 24, 2014 - Performa, Inc. today announced the appointment of co-founder and 25 year veteran of the brand, Douglas R. Page, as PRESIDENT and COO effective immediately.
“For 25-years Doug has been extraordinarily successful at innovating and implementing the operations backbone of Performa as COO,” stated co-founder and CEO, Jeff Kanzelberger. “From day-1 Doug was the driving force behind embedding quality as a cultural cornerstone allowing the firm to place primary focus on our clients’ dynamic needs. We have become known for our ability to grasp and add value to our clients’ strategic aspirations as a direct by-product of leveraging a systematic process. You know you have something special when your clients invite you into their capital planning long before the traditional technical role would normally begin.”
“Performa is now at a stage where Doug’s skill in process and service innovation are required at the strategic front end of our business,” Kanzelberger stated. “We must accelerate the pace and scale of the market penetration of our core and complimentary extended services. The recent launch of the Facilities Management services is a great example of responding to our clients’ requests to bring greater capital asset guidance through extended services. Doug has been tested throughout the entire developmental journey of Performa. I am personally gratified to see a man of such integrity and natural business acumen expand his leadership role.”
In thriving organizations the term “Environment” defines the entirety of their competitive existence – reaching far beyond the physical space they occupy. Performa’s clients are high achievement, driven organizations stretching themselves each and every day to master what makes and keeps them effective and competitive. They discern between partners who add value to their development from those which simply consume their resources.
This condition translates into our purpose: to serve our clients with an unmatched sense of responsibility, to understand and invest our clients’ resources as if they were our own.Log in
Performa – a derivative of “Performance”; the execution of an action; something accomplished: DEED, FEAT; the fulfillment of a claim or promise.
In most organizational settings, “environment” has traditionally referred to structures, the “places” where work is performed. But at Performa, they are so much more.
When we began as a small, tight-knit group of architects and engineers almost twenty years ago, we discerned a void in our industry. We found that few of our peers were looking beyond technical expertise to connect the capital asset decisions of their clients to their business strategy. Our clients are in need of practical solutions to their business challenges. More than a “place,” they’re seeking high-performance, high-achievement environments, those that truly integrate the people that live, learn or work there and the processes they experience.
We have found these conditions to still exist today. The challenges our clients now face are even larger and more complex, which serves to further leverage our approach beyond anything we had imagined when we launched Performa. We are committed to this approach.
This philosophy guides our every action and serves as our foundation for: Creating High Performance Environments®.
