Tangram will bring their expertise in health care, education, and commercial spaces to the DFW market and will be led by Tangram Chief Executive Office Joe Lozowski; Vice President of Sales Amber Jones and Chief Financial Officer Nick Greenko. Furniture company Steelcase’s long-standing partnership with Tangram will also act as a backbone to the evolution and growth in the DFW market.
“DFW represents one the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the world,” said Lozowksi. “We are eager to work with the local commercial real estate and design community to develop amazing workplaces.”
