“This is a natural progression for Lisa, since she’s been partially wearing this hat for the past few years,” said h/dc President Pat Downey. “She has firsthand experience with marketing and has positioned us for success for several years, so putting her in the client-facing role of selling makes perfect sense.”
Buelna has been with h/dc nearly 15 years and has been fully immersed in the Architectural/Engineering/Construction industry during her time with the company. She is co-chair of the annual Build FORE Good charity golf tournament, which brings together the industry for a fun day that has raised more than $600,000 for local nonprofits since its inception in 2013. Her past involvements are serving on the advisory board of Northbridge, a college success program for young adults with learning differences; and fundraising for the American Diabetes Association.
A native of Iowa, Buelna was a college tennis player and gradated from the University of Northern Iowa with a marketing degree. She resides in Phoenix with her husband, Memo and 3-year-old son Beckett.
