HUNTIINGBURG, INDIANA – OFS Brands is proud to announce that they will be sponsoring International Interior Design Association’s program, Career Bootcamp, for the third year in a row.

Career Bootcamp helps jump-start the careers of students and recent graduates by equipping them with tools and resources to assist them in their career pursuit in the Interior Design Industry.

IIDA Career Bootcamp ensures the next generation of designers are primed for the future.
Stacey brings a strong interior design background to her role in Sales at OFS Brands. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Interior Design from NIU, with an emphasis in store planning and corporate workplace.
“Having a design degree has significantly helped my sales efforts especially in today's world. Roles and responsibilities within the design community have more cross over, due to a changing industry. The design firms are relying on dealers and manufactures more and more. Understanding the designer’s vision, design intent and budget, is key. Once I know that, I can use my background to help make selections that will coincide with their request. The goal in the experience is timely, pain free and a solution that works. Solving for design challenges and requests is what a designer does for every project and what I do to sell our solutions,” commented Stacey.
Stacey develops and supports A+ D partners for OFS Brands in the Chicago Market with a passion for design. Within her free time, she enjoying renovating her 1975 tri-level home and giving tours at the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio in Oak Park, IL.
