King Retail Solutions expands creative team with addition of Mark Sargent (Creative Director), four new design team hires, and more new hires on horizon.
CINCINNATI, OH and EUGENE, OR (July 7, 2015) – King Retail Solutions (“KRS”) is pleased to announce the addition of Mark Sargent as Creative Director based at the retail design and build firm’s Cincinnati office. Mark will guide the creative direction of the Design Department’s staff, including architectural/environmental designers and graphic designers.
“From his extensive background in retail environments and commercial design to his exacting creative vision and leadership skills, Mark brings everything to the table,” said Shaun Londahl, President and COO. “We view Mark as the perfect person to lead our creative staff in Cincinnati. He’s worked on domestic and international projects for household-name Fortune 500 companies like Yum! Brands, Fazoli’s, and Mattel and has a strong track record of seeing complex design projects through from creative brief to successful field execution.”
Additional recent design team hires at KRS include Anthony Garrigues (Drafter), Nicholas Gaskill (Store Designer), Susann McKim (Store Designer), and Samantha Strauss (Drafting Intern).
With KRS’ recent expansion via the acquisition of Cincinnati-based retail design and build firm Progressive Interiors coupled with strong organic sales growth in both of its U.S. offices (2015 design project sales are projected to nearly double the firm’s 2014 numbers) KRS is actively seeking additional retail store designers as it continues to expand its Cincinnati, OH office.
About King Retail Solutions
King Retail Solutions provides award-winning retail store design as well as manufacturing, distribution, installation, and whole program management services to local, regional, national, and global clients and has been doing so for over 45 years. At KRS, we’ve found it pays to think several steps ahead, so that’s our standard process. In the design stage, we’re already thinking about the cost of both build and install. A less expensive material may cost twice as much to install. When you understand the implications of every single detail, you’re able to guide a project to its best possible result (beautiful, on budget, on time, functional, and built to last).
