Jerry has served the architectural industry nearly fifty years. He began his career in 1969 working for Herbert Melkey Architects as a designer/planner while he studied at the Georgia Institute of Technology. In the mid-eighties, Jerry returned to his hometown, Springfield, Missouri. He became a Principal at Pellham, Phillips, Hagerman Architects and Engineers, Inc. For nearly three decades, Jerry shared business ownership in a broad base practice. He designed, planned, and administrated some of the region’s premier college campuses, churches, hotels, theaters, amusement parks and banking facilities. In 2004, Jerry and his son, Bo, created Hagerman New Urbanism and continued with an emphasis in higher education. They excelled at campus development, community revitalization planning, and developing historic offices and housing projects in downtown Springfield. In 2011, Hagerman New Urbanism merged with Bates, which later merged into BatesForum in 2018. Jerry continues to serve as a Principal.
