Chairman & Founder

Lloyd is the driving force behind the phenomenal growth and success of DMR Architects. He founded the firm in 1991 with the vision of building a company that pushed boundaries with technology and design, became ingrained in the fabric of New Jersey’s real estate industry, and most importantly, was a place where great people did great work. After 32 years as President & CEO, in 2024, he took on the role of Chairman and Founder and continues to support firm operations.

Drawing on a distinguished career in the field of educational design, under Lloyd’s leadership, DMR first emerged as architects dedicated solely to designing exceptional schools and educational facilities. However, with the idea of a diversified firm, one that could withstand economic cycles and keep pace with emerging practices, Lloyd steadily added expert talent, enabling DMR to expand its capabilities and services, which today includes architectural and interior design for all market sectors, sustainable design and a thriving redevelopment and urban planning department.

During DMR’s history, Lloyd has overseen design and construction projects that represent billions of dollars in investment in New Jersey, with many being celebrated for their cultural, economic and social impacts. Under his direction, DMR built a portfolio of thousands of projects that include sophisticated healthcare facilities, elementary schools, luxury lofts, downtown master plans, police stations, parks, modern offices, academic facilities, sports complexes and more.

A leading architect in his own right, Lloyd enjoyed a more than 25-year, award-winning career with plenty of professional highlights prior to the founding of DMR. He graduated from the renowned architecture program at the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Architecture degree, where he studied under famous architects including Lloyd Wright, son of Frank Lloyd Wright, Bruce Goff, Herb Greene and Paolo Soleri. The physical environment of his professional work ranged from projects close to home in New Jersey to around the globe, including in Nigeria, where he was part of a team of American architects commissioned to design the $500 million National Education Technology Center University in Kaduna, a project that required him to commute back and forth for several years.

An involved and supportive leader, as President & CEO, Lloyd cultivated a supportive and fun work environment, built upon a commitment to the professional growth of employees by empowering them to take on new responsibilities, expand their capabilities and immerse themselves in the business community, without fear of failure. Lloyd’s leadership has helped build a tradition of staff tenure that averages 10 years, with a quarter of the staff being with the firm for more than 20 years.

Outside of the office, Lloyd is committed to organizations, groups and boards that advance and bolster the business community, including the Meadowlands Chamber of Commerce, the Rutgers Center for Real Estate and the Educational Leadership Foundation of New Jersey. In 2021, in celebration of DMR’s 30th anniversary, he founded the DMR Foundation to greater enhance DMR’s charitable efforts.
