NORTH KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI, March 8, 2022 – Jim has joined McClure’s Development Team as a Senior Project Manager.

Schuessler received his Master of Architecture from the University of Kansas and a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from Kansas State University. After graduating from Kansas State, he worked for Sverdrup, which was bought by Jacobs. He worked for DLR Group and again with Jacobs before joining BNIM Architects. Schuessler was there 14 years as he grew a landscape architecture and planning studio from three people to 20. In 2016, he joined CFS Engineers as their only engineer providing landscape and planning leadership. For the last two years, Schuessler was the Director of Marketing and Client Development, where he worked to improve brand awareness and support collateral.

I wanted to work for a firm that was actively looking at strategic growth opportunities, where stagnation was not an option. I wanted to work with a team of landscape architects that were creative and supported the firm’s leadership goals including building relationships. I saw all of these in McClure, and I wanted to be part of the upward trajectory of the firm.”
