In good hands: Skidmore Studio transitions ownership

October 1 2018

We have some big news to share here at the studio: Our current president, Drew Patrick, is officially the owner of Skidmore Studio as of today, Oct. 1, 2018. He purchased our almost-60-year-old legacy studio from our dear friend Colleen Smith, wife of former owner Tim Smith who passed away unexpectedly in January.

While the circumstances that led to this transition are tragic, we are lucky to be in Drew’s very capable, caring hands. His deep love for Skidmore and desire to honor Tim are clear to all of us. We look forward to continuing to do good work in a thriving workplace full of creative and compassionate individuals.

To read more about the purchase, see the story in Crain’s Detroit Business or read Drew’s thoughts about why he decided to purchase the studio.
