Huckabee announces future vision
For 55 years, Huckabee has solely focused on serving educational clients in Texas through the design of innovative learning environments. Our team passionately believes you can change the world through education, and we have continually evolved to find new ways to support our clients in this incredibly important mission.
At our core, Huckabee is a design firm, but as teaching and learning continues to evolve, so too have our services. The phrase “More Than Architects” isn’t just a slogan—it’s our commitment to provide our clients with the diverse range of services needed to prepare students for the future. This approach has been the catalyst of our sustained growth into one of the largest educational firms in the nation, without ever leaving the State of Texas.
For the past several years, Huckabee’s leadership team has been strategically focused on growing our impact and is excited to announce two new partnerships that will launch our next phase of growth.
Huckabee is welcoming a new investment partner, Godspeed Capital, to bring strategic relationships, substantial investment capital and impressive experience in building premier professional services companies. In partnership with Godspeed, Huckabee has acquired the California-based firm, Rachlin Partners, who is aligned with Huckabee’s educational focus and our commitment to being MORE for our clients.
Rachlin is a fully-integrated architecture, planning, interior design, program management and construction management firm that was established in 1982 in Los Angeles. Since its inception, the firm has grown and established a reputation for imaginative and innovative solutions for education and government clients.
“I couldn’t be more proud or more excited. My father founded this firm in 1967 with a single focus on education; we have built upon his legacy and are now poised to impact students, educators and communities across the country,” said Christopher M. Huckabee, Chief Executive Officer of Huckabee. Chris will maintain his current position as CEO, and the firm’s leadership team will remain in place. “Now, we can have an even greater impact with our new partners. The future is incredibly bright for our clients and employees, and I look forward to sharing our continued story of success.”
