DPAI is proud to announce the promotion of two new Associates, Pablo Navarro and Sofia Stanidis!

Pablo Navarro holds a master’s degree in Urban Design from the University of Toronto and received his Bachelor of Architecture at the University of Guadalajara in Mexico. He joined the DPAI architectural team in 2014 and has managed a wide range of projects throughout all phases of design and construction – from site planning, programming and schematic design to detail drawings and contract administration. Pablo brings over 20 years of experience and a wealth of knowledge in building codes and accessibility standards as well as extensive experience working with municipal authorities throughout all phases of approvals.

Sofia Stanidis is a marketing and business development professional with over 13 years’ experience managing strategic marketing campaigns and branding initiatives. As a born and raised Hamiltonian, Sofia graduated from McMaster University with an Hns. BA in English and Fine Art. She started her career in conservation, leading the events and business development efforts for the organization. Sofia later made the move to a GTA municipality where she acted as the marketing lead for the Arts and Culture Division. Now, back in her hometown, Sofia brings her passion and creativity to DPAI where she has led the marketing and proposal development for the past year. Sofia currently holds a Board of Directors position with the Hamilton Conservation Foundation and is a Communications Advisor to the Algonquin to Adirondacks Collaborative.

Pablo and Sofia equally embody DPAI’s values to their core and have contributed to our team’s success a meaningful way. These new appointments truly strengthen the management structure of our firm and celebrate the unique strengths of our growing multidisciplinary team.

We’re excited for the future of DPAI and the contribution that Pablo and Sofia will undoubtedly make in their new roles.

Congratulations, Pablo and Sofia!
