Charley Penix, AIA, LEED AP, CM-Lean

Architect, Former CEO

Email   |   (501)400-1111

Friendly, funny, and full of charm, Charley makes everyone at Cromwell feel right at home. He says the biggest achievement of his life to date was being the CEO of Cromwell for 12 years. After over 20 years of management roles at Cromwell, Charley now focuses on mentoring and project leadership in the firm’s Healthcare group.

Charley enjoys spending time doing anything outside, traveling, gardening, walking, biking, and volunteering in Allsopp Park. If he could have any super power it would be to fly, because he loves to see the earth from the perspective of flying.

Charley says the most challenging aspect of his job is trying to stay focused on one thing (we’d argue it’s his love/hate relationship with technology … He seems to have a knack for making things not work). He says if there’s something to know about Cromwell it’s how incredibly talented we are, and how good we are at what we do.
