The executive leadership of IA Interior Architects is pleased to announce that Anthony Simon has joined the firm as Global Project Director for Retail. Anthony is a seasoned studio leader and design director with over 20 years of experience within the retail, restaurant, and hospitality industries. In his role at IA, Anthony will lead our retail market efforts in New York and collaborate firm wide with each of our offices, connecting with our retail design and architectural professionals across the firm as we expand our retail focus globally.

Formerly at CBX Brand Agency and TPG Architecture, Anthony brings to IA a wealth of retail design experience. His design portfolio includes projects within the workplace, showroom, and retail sectors for clients such as Heineken, Starbucks, L’Oreal, Perry Ellis International and Saks 5th Avenue.

“I am thrilled to be joining IA. With the firm’s caliber of work and clientele, our team will focus on development of all service offerings catered to the retail sector. As today’s business of retail goes beyond “brick & mortar,” so too does our project engagement, providing a more holistic approach, from brand and consumer strategy through design and architecture. I look forward to working closely with our global offices, and our past, present and future roster of clients,” states Anthony.

“As a firm we have a great deal of history and experience in retail and now under Anthony’s leadership and guidance we will take our capabilities to the next level. Anthony’s well rounded experience with retail design, branding and corporate clients ties in well with IA’s “Integrated Model” for strategy, design, delivery, and innovation, which will be a real differentiator in the retail market,”  says David Bourke, IA’s Co-Executive Director.
