DBJ names MOA Small Business Award finalist

MOA ARCHITECTURE is thrilled to announce that we have been selected as a finalist in the 2020 Denver Business Journal Small Business Awards.

Each year the Denver Business Journal recognizes small businesses from around the Denver region through this awards program. Award finalists are for-profit, locally-owned, and employ fewer than 100 people. DBJ highlighted this year’s class of finalists, including MOA, in their May 2020 issue.

“We’re so excited to be recognized with this honor,” said Barry Koury, president of the firm. “It’s been a great opportunity for us to reflect on what we love about working for MOA. One of those things is the strong and supportive company culture we have.”

MOA’s mission is rooted in making a difference in people’s lives, our community, and our world through design. “Ever since joining the firm, I’ve been inspired by MOA’s commitment to producing what we call ‘socially relevant architecture,’” said Eric Vogel, principal and the firm’s director of design. “I love working for a firm where we care so deeply about the work and how it affects the people who use these spaces.”

Known as a “legacy firm,” MOA is committed to developing its next generation of leaders from within its own ranks. “I think everyone at MOA has a real commitment to leaving the firm a better place than it was when we first joined,” said Katie Vander Putten, principal and director of healthcare. “I think that this recognition celebrates that spirit.”
