Birmingham, Ala. (Jan. 30, 2014) – Mike Tillman joined CMH Architects April 5, 1995, beginning as a project manager handling the design of Parisian Department Stores. In his 19 years with the firm, his incredible work ethic is the driving force behind his success at CMH. “He lives a project 24 hours a day and makes it his own,” says firm President Everett Hatcher. “And he is always sketching,” Hatcher says, recalling the hardbound sketchbooks that Mike carries with him, for when inspiration strikes. “By the end of two years, you could look back through one of his beat- up books and see a neat evolution of each project through notes and really nice sketches.”
“In addition to his off-the-charts hard work at the office, Mike has also worked tirelessly on his house over the years and has created one of the most extensive rear decks you will see in Birmingham,” says firm Senior Vice President Michael O’Kelley. “Some of us have joked that it is just a little smaller than something from Swiss Family Robinson.” Mike is currently working on Saks Fifth Avenue in San Juan and serves as the firm’s Executive Vice President.
