Two Detroit-based companies have made personnel changes that each hopes will carry their 2013 fortunes into 2014.
Kraemer Design Group
, the architecture, interior design, and creative firm involved in such high profile Detroit projects as the Broderick Tower and David Whitney Building, have hired four new employees. The company has added two project architects, a senior interior designer, and an architectural designer to their roster.
Laurie Frey Borer and Nicole Eisenmann have been hired as project architects. Frey Borer is a member of the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB), the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Eisenmann possesses a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) accreditation. Both attended the University of Michigan.
Amanda Knight is the new architectural designer for the group, having received a Master of Architecture from Lawrence Technological University. Kimberly Sansone has been hired as senior interior designer. She has over ten years of experience in the field.
The IT and business services company Strategic Staffing Solutions
has announced a number of leadership changes. Each promotion has been made from within company ranks.
Among the promotions are Allen Coleman and April Donaldson both being named executive vice presidents. Carl Bentley will also move into a full-time executive vice president role. Shalini Lawson succeeds Bentley as Detroit branch manager and Bob Zhang is now director of Customer Care and Contact Services.
Strategic Staffing Solutions grew from $208 to $238 million in sales in 2013. President and CEO Cynthia J. Pasky expects that the leadership changes will keep the company competitive and growing in 2014, saying, "We can't assume that what was offered (in 2013) will stay the same. We have to act to keep up our services."
