Hartford Business Journal Q&A With Michael Tyre

The Hartford Business Journal interviewed Michael Tyre in a Q&A about the firm’s plans for growth and new leadership.

From the article written by Greg Bordonaro:

Hartford-based Amenta Emma Architects last year kicked off an ambitious 10-year strategic plan, with goals that include doubling its staff size and becoming a regional design leader in New England. The firm has already made significant strides, helped in part by a recently launched and growing Boston office, which puts the firm squarely in New England’s largest city and a strong growth market.

After winning several major projects in the second half of 2023, Amenta Emma has been adding to its staff, which is now up to about 45 employees, making early headway in its goal to be a 60- to 70-person firm by 2033. Amenta Emma’s Boston office is growing organically and is now up to about 10 employees, including Eric Weyant, who was brought on last year as a principal to lead further market expansion.

All of that is happening as the firm goes through a leadership transition. It recently announced that co-founder Anthony “Tony” Amenta will be stepping down as president and replaced by an expanded leadership team. Taking over the top spot will be Michael Tyre, who will serve as president-elect until assuming the role of president in January 2025. Amenta will remain involved with the firm in an advisory capacity.

Tyre, 47, has been with Amenta Emma since 2015, most recently serving as director of design and head of the firm’s higher education practice. “We have a very clear roadmap of where we want to be in 10 years,” Tyre said. “My primary responsibility is getting us there. I think we’ve made some great strides in the work we’ve produced, the talent we’ve attracted, and our position in the marketplace as it relates to design here in Connecticut. We want to take that to a broader region.”
