“We’re thrilled to welcome Peter back to HOK. He is a thoughtful, forward-thinking designer who will help lead our sports practice into the future,” said Nate Appleman, director of HOK’s Sports + Recreation + Entertainment. “Peter has the ability to expertly guide clients through the design process and create memorable spaces that work for the fan, athlete and university or ownership group.”
“I started my career at HOK, gained valuable experience working on complex sports facilities and am excited to return to work alongside the best in the business,” said Broeder. “I’ve seen firsthand the firm’s commitment to fostering innovation in processes and in practice, and I look forward to working closely with our clients to bring their ideas to life.”
