New On Board: PDR Principal Marc Bellamy

Industry leader and alumnus joins Hines College advisory board

The Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture and Design Leadership Council is an important part of the College’s industry connections and external reach. Its members are comprised of professionals in architecture, interior architecture, industrial design, construction, real estate, and other industries integral to Houston’s design community.  As advocates of the Hines College, Council members help bridge the gap between industry and academia, helping move the College forward and prepare students for successful careers.

This spring, industry leader and alumnus Marc Bellamy (B.Arch. '00) joins the Hines College's Leadership Council as the advisory group continues to advance the College's strategic initiatives.

Marc Bellamy (B.Arch. ’00)
Principal, Design + Architecture – PDR

Marc Bellamy is an architect with a real estate developer’s instinct and a farmer’s patience. He uses these attributes to strengthen client relationships and reinforce PDR’s multi-dimensional role, combining architectural design with business consulting. As PDR Corporation’s Director of Business Development, Marc strengthens existing project relationships and introduces new clients to the firm’s hybrid practice. 

With PDR’s headquarters in Houston, Texas, and an office established in Austin, Marc is also bringing the firm’s unique integrated approach to the Dallas market. His ties to Dallas began years ago when he represented PDR as the program architect for Houston’s ExxonMobil Campus. Marc traveled to the energy giant’s Dallas headquarters every month for two years to communicate progress and return with decisions for every variety of design team contributing to the 14,000-person campus project.

Before joining PDR, Marc was recruited by Midway to manage the construction of the 40-acre CityCentre development, a highly successful mixed-use retail destination in Houston. Prior, Marc was an Associate at Gensler for over 6 years. Marc is an alumnus of the Hines College.
