“Our design outcome is an expression of the people who worked on it. As leaders, it’s our responsibility to foster a creative culture where our talent can thrive.”
Ilma’s role as a Hassell principal is unique – and important. From her base in Shanghai, she focuses on how to strengthen our global community of leaders, ensuring we’re better connected, supported and prepared to lead the practice into the future.
An interior designer for more than 20 years, she brings valuable perspective to the role, with her complete grasp of the design process and the day-to-day interactions of our teams.
With a career spanning different international markets, Ilma also understands the opportunities and challenges we face communicating across global locations, including the rich results we can achieve with a culturally diverse team.
Ultimately, Ilma wants to continue building a healthy, creative environment where our varied skills, backgrounds and experiences are valued – so our talented designers and strategic thinkers can do their best work each day.
