martin s. kemsley


Marty graduated from the University of Utah with his combined MBA/Masters of Architecture degree in 1983.  Soon after, he joined Gilles Stransky Architects, when the company had 15 employees. He has seen the firm grow into GSBS over the years and is very proud to still be part of this dynamic organization.

Marty discovered his strengths included managing Federal Clients. Starting early in his career with a large Maintenance Facility at the Tooelle Army Depot, his portfolio has expanded to include many projects for several Government agencies through Indefinite Quantity Contracts.

Marty really enjoys traveling, and recently purchased some property in Costa Rica, where he plans to retire someday.
