The International Interior Design Association New England (IIDA) celebrated principal Liz von Goeler, NCIDQ, LEED AP ID+C, CDT, as this year’s Business Leaders’ Breakfast Honoree. The breakfast is one of IIDA New England’s largest annual events, dedicated to inspiring and educating design professionals about the broader business of our industry. The honoree is recognized as a major force for elevating the quality of design within the region, as well as being a strong advocate for professional development.
“Finding a person we could immediately trust as a partner in sustaining and expanding our already-thriving Interior Design practice was no small task. It was clear right away that Liz could be that partner. We haven't looked back since she joined us two years ago,” says principal and architect Victor Vizgaitis, AIA, LEED AP, of von Goeler. “Mastery of any one of the aspects of being successful in the design industry—be it design, marketing, professional development, or strategy—is a challenge that requires not just practice and devotion but also raw talent. To have such a fundamental understanding of all of them requires a very unique person indeed, yet Liz demonstrates again and again her complete comfort in navigating every aspect of the industry.”
Congratulations to von Goeler on this industry recognition, and thanks to the following for supporting her nomination:
