For decades, one of Number TEN’s key strengths has been its large, integrated team of professional interior designers. Following an exhaustive search in 2017, the firm expanded its capabilities in the growing commercial interiors sector by welcoming Genevieve Bergman to the team. As commercial interiors design lead, Genevieve will direct numerous initiatives to enhance Number TEN’s workplace design expertise, with a focus on strengthened client service, quality and innovation.
After spending nearly ten years developing her professional design skills in the Toronto market, Genevieve recently returned to her home-town of Winnipeg, bringing with her extensive knowledge and a well-rounded skill-set developed through experience on a variety of innovative projects for clients such as Deloitte, MasterCard, RBC, and Holt Renfrew. She has also been a key contributor to a number of award winning Toronto projects such as the Edelman PR, Fuel Advertising and Saatchi & Saatchi office interiors projects.
“We are thrilled to add a professional of Genevieve’s calibre to the team,” says Commercial and Residential Studio principal and partner Barrie Ottenbreit. “Her advanced design and project management skills, combined with her energetic and friendly personality will further strengthen Number TEN’s interior design capabilities resulting in enhanced client service, design quality and thought leadership.”
Genevieve’s passion for design innovation and client collaboration, combined with her positive attitude and business disposition make her a valuable asset to the Number TEN team.
“Design to me is the perfect combination of beauty and function, it’s why I do what I do,” Genevieve says. “Design affects how we function in our everyday surroundings and plays a great part in our well-being, productivity and mood.”
“I enjoy working in a collaborative environment with clients and colleagues and that is something that really intrigued me about this firm. It’s a place where new ideas are welcomed and encouraged, and the concept of teamwork is strongly valued. I’m very excited to be back home and humbled by the opportunity to work with the talented interior design staff at Number TEN.”
