Architecture & Interior Design

​Sam Astorino

Associate, Business Manager

Sam joined DLA+ in 2012 bringing more than 8 years of business, management, training, human resources, and accounting experience. He received his Bachelor’s Degree from the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado. 

Although his first position in this industry, Sam’s understanding of architecture dates back to his childhood. He watched his father, Dennis, work as a prominent architect and design projects that shaped Pittsburgh. For Sam, seeing a project go from paper to completion is an amazing process to be a part of. 

His involvement in a project begins early at the foundation with the back end setup and continues until project close out. As Business Manager, Sam handles many of the firm’s important details that include accounting, payroll, project administration, and acting as the administrator for our accounting/CRM system. His implementation of administrative processes and systems have been instrumental in maintaining smooth operation during the firm’s multiple years of record-breaking growth. Perhaps the most important was Sam’s role in the transition and execution of a cloud based software system, Deltek, to upgrade payroll, invoicing, AR, and AP at the firm.

Sam enjoys skiing and golfing when not spending time with his wife, daughters and their dog.
