MINNEAPOLIS — NELSON Worldwide, an award-winning architecture, design and strategy firm, is proud to announce the promotions of David Crotty, AIA, LEED AP, DBIA, and Brad Ewing, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP, to National Practice Leaders, Civic & Justice. 

With exceptional expertise and dedication to their practice, Crotty and Ewing have consistently demonstrated their commitment to advancing the sector of civic and justice architecture. Their innovative approach, combined with their passion for creating spaces that foster community engagement and uphold the principles of justice, has been key to the success of numerous projects by NELSON Worldwide. 

“David and Brad have been integral team members, delivering impactful results and pushing the boundaries of design excellence in civic and justice,” said John “Ozzie” Nelson Jr., Chairman and CEO of NELSON Worldwide. “Their promotions to National Practice Leaders are a testament to their exemplary leadership and the immense value they bring to our firm and clients.”

In their new roles, Crotty and Ewing will lead NELSON’s Civic & Justice practice at the national scale, shaping the future direction of the practice and spearheading the development of innovative design solutions that address the evolving needs of communities and justice systems across the country. Their extensive experience and leadership will further support NELSON’s reputation as a leading authority in civic and justice architecture, particularly following the firm’s acquisition of the architect of record business from CGL Companies which expanded the firm’s capabilities and expertise in the sector.

Crotty previously served as the Civic & Justice Regional Practice Leader in the West. His progressive approach to projects, stemming from his Design-Build (DBIA®) certification and involvement, and his commitment to excellence have consistently driven success within the firm. 

“I am honored and excited to take on this new role as National Practice Leader, Civic & Justice,” said Crotty. “I look forward to continuing to work with our talented team to create meaningful projects that positively impact communities.”

Ewing has proven to be an invaluable asset to NELSON, bringing with him a proven track record of innovation and client satisfaction.

“I am deeply honored to have the opportunity to lead NELSON’s Civic & Justice practice on a national level,” said Ewing. I am committed to advancing our mission of creating inclusive, equitable designs that enhance the quality of life for all.”

Crotty and Ewing’s elevations to national leaders reflect their outstanding individual contributions and underscore NELSON’s dedication to nurturing talent and promoting leadership from within.
