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. She will also be remembered by future generations in the design industry via the newly established IFDA Grant ($3000) which will be awarded to an IFDA professional interested in furthering their studies by expanding their horizons through travel, trade shows, or professional development studies.
