Valerie Moran was a visionary in the design industry who lost her battle to cancer the summer of 2014. She started her career as an interior designer and in 1985 she began a longtime affiliation with Grange, later serving for a short period as chairman of B&B Italia, America. Valerie also became a professional consultant in product development, space design, and business, marketing and merchandising for several brands, and presented popular seminars, here and abroad. IFDA benefited directly from her business acumen: she served as president of the New York Chapter and chairman of the Past President Council. She will be widely remembered as a gracious, generous, joyful, and compassionate woman, whose big beautiful smile lit up the lives of all who shared her company and enthusiasm for life.
