It is with the warmest of best wishes and more than a little regret that we bid farewell to Susan Wilsie-Govier, NCIDQ, WRID, as she retires and begins the next chapter in her life story. Sue has been both a firm partner and Director of Interior Design. Sue's wonderful ability to understand a client's vision and convert their ideas into colors, textures and materials has resulted in exceptional spaces and places for clients throughout her 36-year career.
The Interior Design team is now led by Dustin Struckmeyer, NCIDQ, IIDA, LEED AP, who joined ADCI early this year. Sue and Dustin have worked closely for many months to ensure a seamless transition for both clients and ADCI staff.
Under Sue's leadership, ADCI created its Interior Design division when she joined the firm in 2005. Since then, the division has grown to a full-time staff of five designers who create award-winning interior experiences for resorts, spas, hotels, restaurants and other properties across the United States.
She tirelessly advocated a holistic approach – integrating the architectural design process with the interior design and branding processes to create experiences for venue guests and staff, whether that experience is energizing, restorative, inspiring or adventurous.
Sue's elegant, sophisticated style transcends interior design to be expressed through her other talents as a writer, artist and teacher. After departing ADCI, Sue will focus more on the family business in northern Wisconsin, Aqualand Ale House in Boulder Junction, with husband Dick. Sue also plans to spend time fishing with her Dad and indulge her love of quilting with her Mom.
While we are saddened to see Sue go and will miss her leadership and grace, all of us at ADCI wish her the very best and thank her for her many years of service with ADCI.
