CORPUS CHRISTI, TX — Architect Connie Rivera, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP, joins Texas-based Pfluger Architects as Co-Managing Principal of the firm’s Corpus Christi office, where she will drive growth and innovation in educational facility planning, design, and construction administration in the Coastal Bend region. Rivera has led successful projects in the education and municipal sectors across South Texas.

Pfluger Architects measured exponential growth in a post-COVID environment, spurring personnel hires and promotions across all sectors and markets, including South Texas. Rivera — with nearly 30 years of experience largely in the Corpus Christi area — will lead the firm’s growing project portfolio and team.

"Connie is a natural fit for our team, and we’re so pleased she’s joined our Corpus Christi office as Co-Managing Principal," said Terry Hoyle, Pfluger’s CEO. "Her expertise and reputation will contribute to Pfluger’s continued South Texas success. We look forward to the innovative solutions and processes she will bring to our clients and the community."

A graduate of Mary Carroll High School in Corpus Christi, Rivera earned her Bachelor of Architecture from The University of Texas at Austin before returning to her hometown and leading building projects. A graduate of Leadership Corpus Christi and former Coordinating Architect for Del Mar College, she led projects across the Coastal Bend including Del Mar’s Heldenfels Admin Building, Gregory-Portland ISD Athletic Complex Master Plan, and Woodsboro ISD New Band Hall.

“Joining Pfluger is an opportunity to be part of a significant, impactful, and transformative initiative,” Rivera said. “Drawing from my experience in different offices and firms, I’m eager to support an office culture that not only promotes development and growth but also actively engages with the community.”

A LEED-accredited professional, Rivera is conscientious of environmental impact and supports historic preservation and adaptive re-use in the built environment. Since 2000, she has been President of the Texas Society of Architects. As an Adjunct Instructor at Del Mar College, she continues to share her knowledge and experience with the next generation of designers and architects.
