    Lori brought the rich experience of her diverse interior design career to Gerflor and contributed to the company from a unique approach and perspective. Due to her key position within the design industry, including her tenure as president of the American Academy of Healthcare Interior Designers, Lori brought credibility and focus regarding the design process to Gerflor that we had not had in the past. Lori is always proactive in pursuing the best, evidence-based methods to build our brand, develop our product and educate our team about design in general and healthcare design in particular. Lori facilitated focus groups vetting new product prototypes across the US and collaborated with our US marketing team and design team in France based on the results, providing invaluable product insight. Lori speaks design easily to many different audiences and effectively builds design “bridges.” We look forward to continue working with Lori in the future.
