Thad Siemasko, Founder and Principal of SV Design is pleased to welcome Kathleen O’Connor to the architecture and interior design firm as Director of Marketing & Business Development. Kathleen brings over twenty years of marketing and business development experience along with a fresh perspective and approach to problem solving, marketing, and operations.
“We’re extremely fortunate to have Kathleen here on the team,” says Siemasko. "Her passion for the firm’s dedication to thoughtful design is apparent in all she does to bring SV Design to the forefront of our industry.”
Kathleen’s multi-faceted career began in marketing, business development, and client services within the financial industry and soon evolved into strategic consulting for large financial companies, advising boards on corporate restructuring. About ten years in, a new opportunity presented itself and she shifted to public relations consulting in the television business where she managed public appearances, engagements, and contracts for hosts of a well-known home improvement show. Over the years, Kathleen’s entrepreneurial spirit also led her to strategic business consulting, helping new small business owners bring their visions to reality by managing the operational process of launching their businesses from the ground up.
Kathleen loves being part of a visionary team and says her favorite part about SV Design is working with creative people who energize her every day she walks in the door.
