PSMJ’s exclusive Circle of Excellence recognizes outstanding business achievements in architecture and engineering.

SAN LUIS OBISPO and SANTA BARBARA, CA – (August 15, 2022) – 19six Architects, one of the oldest architectural firms in California and based on the Central Coast, is pleased to announce that PSMJ Resources, Inc. awarded 19six Architects to the 2022 Circle of Excellence. PSMJ Resources, Inc. is a leading authority on the effective management of architecture, engineering, and construction firms. Each year they announce a select group of architecture and engineering firms making it into the exclusive list.

PSMJ designed the Circle of Excellence to highlight successfully managed firms that demonstrate outstanding achievements in areas such as profitability, overhead management, cash flow, productivity,

business development, staff growth, and turnover. The Circle of Excellence members understand the importance of benchmarking and have raised the bar through top-notch business practices. The list represents the top 20 percent of participants in PSMJ’s annual A/E Financial Performance Benchmark Survey, based on 13 key performance metrics.

Each year, the Circle of Excellence firms come from all corners of the A/E space. This diversity demonstrates that success isn’t defined by a specific firm size, location, or market niche,” says Frank A. Stasiowski, FAIA, Founder and CEO of PSMJ Resources. “The top-performing firms just think and act differently from the rest of the pack to achieve extraordinary business performance.”
