Chris is the Chief Executive Officer of Huckabee, a nationally recognized architecture and engineering firm. He stepped into the role more than 30 years ago, poised to build upon the legacy that his father started in 1967 when Huckabee opened. Under Chris’s leadership, Huckabee experienced incredible growth by focusing on the expansion of services, expertise and impact. Chris built a national network of partners and firms that bring the best in planning and design practices to the communities we serve. He also adopted a culture of MORE for the firm, creating a comprehensive approach to design that extends beyond architecture and engineering services. As “More Than Architects,” Huckabee brings together specialists in planning, interior design, communications, branding, furniture, environmental graphics, research and construction to deliver holistic solutions to meet the evolving needs of our clients.
