Nadia is the founder of Interior Talent. Her goal has remained the same, to be a trusted, strategic growth partner for clients while operating a firm grounded in ethics. We believe that employees are the foundation and catalyst for growth in any organization. Being able to identify this for our clients allows us to participate in solving the immediate needs within their organization so they can build their vision. The team at Interior Talent is constantly inspired by our clients as we’ve had the pleasure of working with the best in the industry. Our business has evolved since opening in Chicago in 2003 but our personal connections and approach haven’t. We now incorporate a variety of technology-driven tools to ensure we are efficient and adaptable, however, in a people business, we simply treat everyone with respect and value each client and candidate relationship.
