Spot PeeleArchitecture, interiors, and planning firm LS3P recently announced a key leadership change on its board of directors.

Chief Practice Officer KATHERINE PEELE was named board chair, succeeding THOMPSON E. PENNEY. Senior Vice President PAUL BONEY will continue to serve as vice chair.

Peele joined LS3P (then Boney Architects) in 1988 after she graduated as valedictorian of her class from North Carolina State University with an architecture degree.

In her thirty-four years with the firm, she has managed over $1 billion worth of construction, with projects ranging from educational to workplace to civic work.

She became Raleigh office leader in 2005, joined the board of directors in 2010 and was named vice president of practice in 2013. In her role as chief practice officer, which she has held since 2019, she “oversees firmwide design excellence and quality, growth of practice expertise and innovation,” firm officials say.

Peele served as the 2000 president of AIA North Carolina and was elevated to AIA Fellowship in 2003 in recognition of her extensive expertise and commitment to educational facility design. In 2019, she received the AIA North Carolina Gold Medal. In 2009, she was awarded the William H. Dietrick Service Medal by the AIA North Carolina Chapter for her service to the profession; in 2017, she was appointed by the governor to serve a five-year term on the North Carolina Board of Architecture, where she most recently served as board president.
