Today’s spotlight: Beth Katz

Title: Founder and principal, KatzDesignGroup

Background: Beth Katz brings more than 25 years of commercial interior design expertise to KatzDesignGroup. She is active with AZCREW and UMOM New Day Centers.

Best decision: “When we moved to Phoenix in 2003, I thought I left behind 12 years of clients. One of my Boston clients called: ‘Did you set up your own firm? We want to get started on five national call centers and we are working with you.’ My experience at my previous firm prepared me to roll, so I did. Fifteen years later, KDG is strong.”

Surprising fact: “If I wasn’t designing restaurants and office space, I would be a scuba instructor.”
