Interim CEO


Ann serves as Interim CEO, responsible for day-to-day leadership. She provides strategic management, administration, finance and program decisions and also works with the SEGD Board of Directors.

Ann, a devoted SEGD staff member for over 19 years, is Interim CEO of SEGD. She previously served as COO, Interim Executive Director, Managing Editor of the SEGD color magazine, and Director of Membership & Communications.

Over the years, Ann has been pivotal in growing SEGD's membership significantly. Under her direction, SEGD moved to an online design awards process, started a new magazine, transitioned to a new website, grew the SEGD Auction, and elevated the SEGD Achievement Awards.

Ann joined SEGD when there were only three other staffers and SEGD lived in a small corner of the National Building Museum. In the ensuing years, she has literally done every single job at SEGD, though the time she picked up a poster at Massimo Vignelli’s New York apartment was probably the coolest.
