IA Interior Architects Announces Opening of 22nd Office in Minneapolis/St. Paul



Minneapolis/St Paul, MN – July 2019

The executive leadership of IA Interior Architects is pleased to announce the opening of its 22nd office in Minneapolis, MN.  Cassandra Griep, CID, IIDA, will lead the office as Managing Director. Her primary focus will be building the practice and expanding IA’s global design presence into the Minneapolis-Saint Paul (MSP) market. This is an important strategic move, as it represents an augmentation of the firm’s offerings in the central region of the United States.

Cassandra brings broad-based industry knowledge, spanning strategy, design, client leadership and mentoring to IA.  She is an exceptional leader and designer with a history of innovative project work with global clients; Cassandra has spent the past decade working in the commercial design field, and has an enviable depth of expertise in the MSP market.

A city well known for its design and architecture community, as well as sustainable construction, Minneapolis’s profile has been steadily growing nationally. IA has completed several projects in the city, including two in the T3 “Timber Tower.”  The firm looks forward to building on this momentum.

“Minneapolis is a city that is community-focused, with an emphasis on human connections and experiences. I have a passion for seeing our community and organizations grow and thrive, and design plays a crucial element in that. I’m excited to be joining IA and capitalizing on the firm’s flourishing presence in the city!” shares Cassandra.

“At IA, it’s all about design, our people and our clients; we know that Cassandra shares these values and look forward to a successful launch of our MSP office. Through her leadership, the office will quickly develop a strong, dynamic and successful team,” shares David Bourke and Tom Powers, IA’s co-CEOs/Presidents.
