We are very excited to announce RVi’s expansion into the Atlanta market, as well as the appointment of key leadership for two of our newest offices – Atlanta and Scottsdale.

Doug Craig, PLA has been named Vice President and Managing Principal of our Scottsdale office, which opened in July of this year. Doug is a talented landscape architect with deep ties to the Phoenix market.  Doug began his career in Phoenix over 30 years ago, and has experience building the teams and relationships that are so critical to a successful landscape architecture practice.

For RVi, the opening of an Arizona office is a natural fit. “We have a strong client base in the Phoenix area and over two decades of project experience in the desert southwest.  We are very excited to have the opportunity to be closer to these clients, as well as to expand our reach in this market,” said Chris Crawford, RVi President.

Kerry Blind, FASLA has been tapped for the Vice President and Managing Principal role in our new Atlanta office.  Kerry is a licensed landscape architect and ASLA Fellow.  Over the course of his career, he has founded two landscape architecture firms and has become a leader in the field of green infrastructure.

“We’re excited about the Atlanta market and the opportunity to serve the broader region of the southeastern United States.  We could not have asked for a better individual to lead our efforts.  Kerry has an outstanding reputation and his portfolio of work speaks for itself,” said RVi CEO Bob Richardson.

These expansions are part of RVi’s plan for sustainable growth.  In the past two years, the firm has expanded from two offices to five, with locations now in Austin, Houston, Dallas, Scottsdale, and Atlanta.
