DENVER, CO — Sasaki announces Joshua Brooks AICP, ASLA, PLA and Anna Cawrse ASLA, PLA have been promoted to Principal.

“A hallmark of Sasaki’s success over the years has been welcoming new voices to the firm’s leadership, especially those that offer fresh perspectives and lead us towards innovative opportunities,” said Sasaki CEO, James Miner. “Bringing new voices to the table is what allows a legacy firm like ours to continue to evolve and take on the most pressing challenges of today. Individually, Josh [and] Anna ... bring tremendous leadership and depth of experience to their clients and teams. And together, through their commitment to continuous learning and collaboration, they will advance Sasaki’s design culture, which is where the real magic happens.”

Brooks’ work revolves around the intersection of people and infrastructure, where he works to promote human-centric urbanism through design. His expertise includes district-scale master planning and design, urban development, infrastructural systems, and streets and public space. Brooks’ multidisciplinary background in urban planning and landscape architecture helps him shepherd projects from conception through realization.

With his Co-Director Anna Cawrse, Brooks has grown the Denver office to 22 people and established connections to communities across the western U.S. since its opening in fall of 2020.
