Jennifer T. Busch

Jennifer Busch, Hon. IIDA, recently joined Interface as Vice President of A&D Market Development, and is responsible for the development and management of business relationships with major architectural and design firms throughout North America.

Prior to joining Interface, Jennifer served as Editor in Chief of Contract magazine from 1999-2011, where she routinely reported on the social, political, technological, economic, and business trends impacting the practice of commercial interior design, with a particular emphasis on design's influence on business and society, and its power to create positive change. In 2009 she was bestowed with Honorary IIDA status, to date the only design editor to have achieved such recognition.

Throughout her career, Jennifer has participated in the development and organization of key industry events and trade shows, served as a jury member for numerous industry competitions, had many speaking engagements as either a moderator or featured speaker, and served as a guest critic for student work at several academic institutions. At Interface, she will continue to promote the value of good design to commercial enterprises with real business goals.

Jennifer graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a Bachelors degree in English, and from Indiana University with a Masters degree in Journalism. She also holds a second full-time job as the mother of two daughters, ages 13 and 16, and this accounts for most of what she has learned in life.
