Vice President, Planning and Design
Joined Taubman in 1987
"My plan when I started at Taubman as a young architect was to stay long enough to broaden my understanding of real estate development and then move on to an architectural design firm. Well, more than a quarter of a century later I'm still here, loving the variety and excitement of each unique development project. I’m glad I stayed because working here gives me the opportunity to positively impact the quality of life in communities around the globe. One hallmark of our brand is that beyond responding to a location’s site features, we design every center to complement the cultural and architectural context of its region. And we get to tap the best minds and experience in the industry for feedback and guidance on any given challenge, right here under our own roof."
“One thing I really appreciate about working at Taubman is the company’s willingness to give you the resources you need to succeed. In striving for excellence, our culture encourages personal and professional growth, while at the same time fostering an environment of collaboration across all departments. To build on our success, we recruit high-achieving individuals, and our onboarding process for new employees does not stop after 30 days. We understand that it takes a while for anyone to be fully ‘Taubmanized.’ So we provide plenty of training and make sure everyone is continually experiencing and contributing to the excellence and performance that define our properties and our organization.”
