CMG’s New Associates: Wesley Cogan, David Gastañeta, and Jamie Yousten



In a year of resilience and growth, we are excited to recognize Wesley Cogan, David Gastenata, and Jamie Yousten with promotions. Thank you for all you do – we are excited for your future contributions!

Wesley Cogan, Associate

Wesley is a thoughtful, diligent, and talented team member. She has brought valuable contributions over the years on so many projects – Potrero Power Station, Mission Rock, San Francisco Civic Center, and San Francisco Waterfront Resilience Program. Her efforts extend beyond exceptional work into many facets of our office – hiring, internships, Design Team, advancing Climate Positive Design, and leading important office conversations like the recent Green New Deal.

David Gastañeta, Associate

David’s enthusiasm translates into curiosity and his curiosity translates into creativity and invention. He is a generous collaborator who is always there to support the team. He brings a witty sense of humor coupled with a seriousness and rigor in his work on Nueva School, Gateway of Pacific, and Treasure Island. David has been leading the implementation of CMG’s IT strategy and has integrated a wide range of new technologies into CMG’s workflow including our Revit, 3D printing and many more. 

Jamie Yousten, Associate

Jamie cares deeply about the work she touches, the people she works with, and the places and communities that we do the work for in the first place. She contributes great joy and spirit to CMG – from versatile project types and phases of Facebook, Hunters Point, and Marin Country Day School, where she nimbly moves between meetings, field, coordination, documenting, researching, and designing (in no particular order) to her dedicated involvement on CMG’s DEI initiative.
