Under her leadership, rand* grew from being a small tenant interiors firm into a $400+ million national multi-market construction corporation. Her knowledge of the industry and professional experience has enabled rand to deliver award-winning work for a vast client base. With a focus on networking, innovation, quality, and customer service.
