SDD is comprised of a small but dynamic team. Dahlia Latif, who is the president of SDD, held the first meeting in 2014 for design showrooms to meet each other and discuss common concerns. She remains to lead SDD with the support of the partners, board members, and member showrooms and strives for the non-profit to grow each year to reach a wider and diverse design audience. Latif has 17 years in the industry and currently acts as VP of Retail Sales in North America for Emeco.
Our project manager and designer, Lisa Lozano Czulinski comes from a fine art and design background and has worked with many institutions and individuals to create public experiences within the project and installation event milieu. She plays an integral role in our think tank, managing SDD’s projects, running the day to day communications and being a spokesperson for SDD’s mission.
Our newest member Austin Whittle has a background in sales and social media and has helped to strengthen our online presence with exponential growth. He is working towards a larger vision for SDD as a brand in 2018 and currently working in the Lee Broom showroom.
Nassy Diaby joined our team two years ago and has played the role of a project manager and client liaison to bridge communication with our members and team. She is a French bilingual creative professional with 7 years of marketing experience in the luxury industry.
