Mark D. Stumer, AIA

Principal

Mark D. Stumer is one of the founding principals at Mojo Stumer Associates. He has practiced architecture as a principal for more than 30 years. Before the formation of Mojo Stumer Associates, he worked for a New York City architectural ­firm where he was lead designer on many award-winning projects.

His expertise in architectural design, interiors, and project management has enabled Mojo Stumer Associates to develop into the organization it is today. Mr. Stumer sees architecture as an entire design process where the architectural design does not end with a building form, but must include the function and aesthetics of the interiors for the project to be complete.

His responsibility at Mojo Stumer Associates, besides his architectural projects, leans towards design development and interior design, along with the responsibilities of marketing, social networking, public relations, and ­firm management. He was instrumental in starting the Interiors Department at Mojo Stumer Associates 22 years ago and takes pride in its present status. He continues to play an active role in its design direction and daily management.

Mr. Stumer graduated Pratt Institute in 1974 with a Bachelor of Architecture degree, and he became a Registered Architect in 1979. He is also a member of the following professional organizations:

  • • American Institute of Architects, National Association
  • • American Institute of Architects, New York/Long Island Chapter
  • • New York State Society of Registered Architects
  • • Architectural League of New York

He is also a member in good standing with the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) and is registered in New York, New Jersey, Florida, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania.

As a fi­rm principal and respected design leader in the ­field, he has been asked to lecture at many design and institutional functions. He has donated his time to educate elementary school students to the wonder of architecture.

Mr. Stumer presently sits on the board of the Architectural Landmarks Commission for Kings Point, New York, and in 2013 he was appointed to the Planning Commission. He serves as a board member of the Great Neck Arts Center and was a trustee for nine years and head of the Building Committee at Temple Beth El of Great Neck, one of the largest Reform Congregations in the country. He was a board member of Engineers Country Club for more than six years and led their construction campaign as trustee and architect.

In 2005, Mr. Stumer was very proud to be appointed to the Board of Trustees of Pratt Institute, one of the nation’s leading architectural schools and his alma mater. In 2010, he was appointed chair of the Building & Grounds Committee.

He has been recognized for his charitable work by being the honoree of the Tilles Center “Swing for Kids” Golf Outing, the Great Neck Arts Center Gala, and the Temple Beth El Golf Outing.

In recent years, Mr. Stumer has revitalized his passion for photography and has become an accomplished photographer, documenting many Mojo Stumer projects. His architectural photographs have recently been widely published.
