Jasmax was pleased to promote 38 talented individuals to senior roles within in the practice on Tuesday 15 July.

The final list recognises staff spanning the urban design architecture, interior design, landscape architecture disciplines; their roles varying from registered architects to graduates, technicians and those with support functions.

The group is reflective of the skills and talent within the Jasmax team that continues consistently to deliver to the varied needs of our clients.

Marko den Breems, Managing Principal, commented “As with any decision such as promotions, a comprehensive consideration is required. This year our promotions recognise and acknowledge a core of three attributes that can be applied to each of these individuals; externally they are ambassadors for Jasmax, they are respected for specialist technical, design or leadership skill, or they positively contribute to Jasmax’s strong internal culture. As such we’re pleased to be able to recognise the diverse range of skills across our practice.”

With promotions to Associate Principal, Senior Associate and Associate roles, we’re pleased to acknowledge the following members of staff within our regional offices:

Six were promoted to Associate Principal:


Richard Hayman, who worked most recently on one of the first projects completed in the Christchurch rebuild - the award-winning, commercial mixed-use precinct Three35.
