DENVER, CO Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture (BRS), with offices in Denver, Colorado, and Dallas, Texas, announces Keith Hayes, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, as the firm's Chief Financial Officer (CFO). In this role, Hayes will guide the firm's financial strategy and planning. Chuck Musgrave, AIA, the firm's previous CFO, remains with the firm and has shifted his focus to project management and client care.
"BRS has experienced tremendous growth and financial stability under Chuck's guidance," said the firm's CEO, Craig Bouck, AIA, LEED AP.

Hayes has been with BRS since 1995 and became a Principal in 1999. He has more than 25 years of experience designing public architecture, including community and recreation centers, municipal office buildings, visitor centers and schools. Hayes' love for architecture began when his parents received a copy of Reader's Digest Complete Do-It-Yourself Manual for home repair, and now, he wants to find a similar reference for CFOs.
As CFO, Keith is one of the members of the Management Team guiding the planning and implementation of the firm's financial strategy, as well as supporting Project Managers on project budgets.
Hayes' strength lies in his commitment to his clients to assure that they are heard and their facility needs are met. As a Principal and Project Manager, he excels in his attention to details and his ability to juggle the many tasks necessary to assure an excellent project. He has a Bachelor of Environmental Design from the University of Colorado-Boulder, and a Master of Architecture from the University of Washington.
