WASHINGTON, D.C. — LEO A DALY announces a change in executive leadership. Edward Benes, PE, has assumed the role of President and Deputy Chief Executive Officer for the Leo A. Daly Company. In the new role, Benes will assist CEO and Chairman Leo A. Daly III, FAIA, RIBA, FRAIA, in developing strategy and operations for the firm. He is based in Washington, D.C.

“Ed brings a youthful energy, strategic insight, and entrepreneurial spirit to the role of Deputy CEO, and I trust him immensely," Daly said. "Since joining LEO A DALY in 2012, he has provided valuable advice and demonstrated an impressive combination of strategic thinking, judgment, and character. I am greatly looking forward to working closely with him, and the executive team, to create a dynamic path forward for our firm."

Benes has been LEO A DALY’s Senior Vice President and General Counsel and part of the executive leadership team for the past 10 years. In his 10 years with the firm, he brought a renewed vigor to managing financial risk and project delivery. He also significantly reduced costs and expenses related to insurance programs and overall claim exposure. For the past three years, Benes has also led the Human Resources team, developing HR into a more innovative and proactive resource for employee engagement and talent development.

Before becoming an attorney, Benes was licensed as a Professional Engineer. Skilled in design, project management, and collaborating with architects and other engineers, he developed client relationships, and pursued, won, and managed large infrastructure projects. As an attorney in the architecture and engineering industry, Benes used his background and experience to address critical issues facing design firms across the country and worldwide.

President Steve Lichtenberger, AIA and Chief Financial Officer James Brader will report directly to Benes. Lichtenberger and Brader will continue to be part of the executive leadership group, the Chairman’s Circle. Chief Human Resources Officer Samantha Holy, SPHR will continue to report to Benes. Until a new General Counsel is identified, Benes will continue to be responsible for all legal matters.
