KANSAS CITY, MO. — Earlier this month, CRB elected four new members to its board of directors, of which three represent the company’s first election of non-company members to the board.
Sandy Price, Tim Hannan, Bob Uhler and Shannah Falcone were all appointed, and Paul Skinner was re-elected to serve another term on the board. Price, Hannah and Uhler are all external board members.
“Each of these distinguished leaders brings a wealth of experience that will continue to position CRB as the preeminent provider of planning, design and construction services to clients,” said Ryan Schroeder, president of CRB. “Together, their insights and fresh perspectives will challenge and strengthen us, resulting in continued high value for our clients and rewarding experiences for our employees.”
