CMBA Announces New CEO

CMBA is happy to announce that our Board of Directors have appointed Brian Crichton as Chief Executive Officer. Crichton previously held the position of Principal and was Secretary of the Board of Directors at CMBA.

“There is no better person to lead CMBA into the future than Brian Crichton,” said Todd Moss, current President and CEO. “Brian is a proven leader with profound architectural skills, business vision and has the ability to bring people together. His vision for the future and his knowledge of technology is exactly what CMBA needs as the firm enters its next chapter of expanded innovation and growth.”

Moss indicated the transition has been planned for some time. “Like my predecessors, I plan to step back and support the new leadership team. Our transition planning has been key to our success since 1912.” Moss will continue with the firm, where he loves collaborating with clients and coworkers. He plans to work nearly full-time, while dedicating a little more time to a family travel business.

CMBA was recognized in 2014 by ZweigWhite as one of the Best Firms to Work For in North America. In 2013, the Sioux City Growth Organization (SCGO) honored the Sioux City office with the Ripple award for making a difference in Siouxland.

Since joining the company in 2001, Crichton has spearheaded major strategy and technological shifts that have advanced the firm’s service offerings. Crichton has led many of the firms’ most significant projects.

“CMBA is a strong firm, a community partner, with an amazing team culture. I couldn’t be more honored to have been chosen to lead the firm,” Crichton said. “Our team at CMBA is what makes us a strong firm. A big part of my job is to continue to advance our ability to bring creativity and service to our clients.”

“I have worked with numerous firms like CMBA throughout my 30-year career, but none better than CMBA,” said Peter Thoreen, President/CEO of St. Luke’s UnityPoint Health in Sioux City. “It has been a pleasure working with their leadership team and their talented staff. I know their passion for great customer service and producing the highest quality of results, and I believe this will only grow stronger under Brian’s leadership.”
