Francis Cauffman Architects Building a national reputation


The partners of Francis Cauffman wanted to transform the company from a regional practice into a national design firm. Determined to be a leader in innovative design, the partnership rebranded the firm and opened an office in New York. In order to boost their marketing activities and attract new clients, the firm sought to achieve significant coverage in national publications. Through Hausman’s efforts, Francis Cauffman went from being “the best-kept secret in Philadelphia” to number three on the Zweig White Hot List of firms to work for in 2009.
