Zweig Group Announces New Owners
ZweigWhite LLC (Zweig Group), a global leader in products and services to the architecture, engineering and professional services consulting (AEC) industry, announced today that Jamie Claire Kiser and Christina Zweig Niehues have joined the ownership team. Kiser and Niehues Join Chad Clinehens, Zweig Group’s CEO, and Mark Zweig, Founder and Chairman, in the ownership pool while also serving on the company’s Board of Directors.
Announcing the appointment to the company, Zweig said, “We are excited to add Jamie Claire and Christy to the ownership team as we expand leadership roles and focus on growing the company.”
“Being an owner is recognition that I am instrumental in building something, and that I am accountable in a different way to each employee in what I do to build this company,” said Kiser. “I am looking forward to setting a tone as an owner that I hope makes other people want to be more and achieve more.”
Kiser started with the company in 2015 with an initial focus on mergers and acquisitions and expanded her role last year to lead all of the company’s consulting services, which lead the firm in growth in 2017.
“Ownership in Zweig Group represents my commitment to bring value to both our clients and employees,” said Niehues. “I look forward to continuing to build something that I’m proud of – an organization that helps people in the AEC industry.”
Niehues started with the company in 2011, although she has benefited from watching the company grow and evolve throughout her life. She has held a variety of roles in the organization and currently is managing the marketing department.
Kiser holds a Master of Business Administration, Juris Doctor, and Bachelor of Arts in History, all from the University of Arkansas. Kiser is a licensed attorney with prior experience in law. Niehues also holds a Master of Business Administration, and a Bachelor of Arts in English, from the University of Arkansas.
