After experience with Rockwell Group and AvroKO, Krista Ninivaggi has developed a team of 20 interior designers at SHoP in only three years, and plans to increase it to about 30 this year. Krista is leading the interior design of offices, schools, restaurants, hotels, and
entertainment venues following the success of Barclays Center.
