Berkshire Hathaway’s wholly-owned Benjamin Moore has become an Innovation Partner of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). The new relationship will leverage Benjamin Moore’s thought leadership in the design and architecture market through content and education programs, while also providing support to students of architecture who are on the path to licensure.
Founded in 1857, the American Institute of Architects works to create more valuable, healthy, secure, and sustainable buildings, neighborhoods, and communities. Through nearly 300 state and local chapters, the AIA advocates for public policies that promote economic vitality and public wellbeing. Members adhere to a code of ethics and conduct to ensure the highest professional standards. The AIA provides members with tools and resources to assist them in their careers and business as well as engaging civic and government leaders and the public to find solutions to pressing issues facing our communities, institutions, nation and world.
“We are delighted to have the support of Benjamin Moore as an Innovation Partner of the AIA,” noted Robert Ivy, FAIA, EVP/Chief Executive Officer of the AIA. “Their knowledge and expertise in paints and stains can help us serve architects and advance good design in the built environment.”
“Benjamin Moore is proud to partner with the AIA on their efforts to offer continuing education and ongoing support for the architectural community,” said Veronica Connallon Arcaroli, Director, Architect and Designer Segment at Benjamin Moore.
“We are committed to providing resources and opportunities that help architects and other trade professionals enhance their development and growth within the industry.”
