Voices of HED - Jerome 'Otis' Odell
In recognition of the amazing people that make our firm exceptional, we asked our team some questions about their role and what inspires them and their work.

Today, we're recognizing Jerome 'Otis' Odell, a Principal/Studio Leader out of our Los Angeles office.

What’s your favorite part of your job?

All of it. Getting the win or the handshake from the client, getting the vision clearly understood, and participation in the early set-up.

What do you wish people outside the industry understood about your job?

How hard we work on behalf of our clients and the number of steps it takes from finding an opportunity to getting a built project.

What assignment or project are you most proud of?

Affordable housing wins. Starting from scratch and getting connected with affordable housing developers and getting them to select HED to do their work.
