As director of business development in the Dallas office, Kristen has a straightforward description of her role: "Making sure that everyone in Dallas knows who we are and what we do," she responds. Kristen spends her days researching and prospecting to discover new projects, and particularly enjoys the challenge of interior renovations and commercial buildings. "There are many different paths to reach the decision maker, and I enjoy the strategy behind discovering those in charge," she explains. To recharge from all that networking, Kristen opts for the simple pleasures of sitting by a pool or on a beach in Mexico. She also looks to her son for extra motivation. "Soccer is a huge part of my son’s life," she says. "His dedication and passion help drive me."
