Danielle Masucci, IIDA, NCIDQ, has been promoted to director of HDR’s workplace design practice.
Masucci brings over two decades of experience to her new role, recently serving as an interior design principal for eight years in HDR’s Pennington, New Jersey, architecture studio. She understood the firm’s design practice and business leadership during this time by working across offices and market sectors. Masucci has proven to build strong design teams by finding talented candidates with diverse experience and knowledge.
In this new role, Masucci will leverage her skills, experience and HDR’s resources to recruit new talent and build a global team of workplace design experts. This team will provide excellence in workplace strategy, planning, analysis, design and research to deliver quality design solutions and design thinking to HDR’s clients.
“I am very excited to build a new level of expertise within HDR and create opportunities for interior design-led work by expanding upon the capabilities of the interior design practice,” Masucci said.
“Danielle has contributed valuable insights into redeveloping our workplace practice while in her interim leadership role,” said Architecture Professional Services Director Chris Bormann. “I’m thrilled she has decided to take on this critical leadership challenge to get HDR back into the highly competitive workplace market.”
In her first year as director, Danielle hopes to redefine what workplace really means to HDR’s markets by connecting with leaders in each of their market sectors to understand how their workplace design practice can best help them serve clients.
“We are at a critical time in the evolution of how people work,” Masucci said. “The future of workplace design will be defined by our clients and how they intend to conduct business in the built environment. It’s our task as designers to be creative, innovative, and responsive to support a flexible future.”
