After 29 years—the last three with NBA­—in the business, Taylor is quite adept at anticipating the next question. His idea of a good project is not predicated on big budgets, but on planning that solves client objectives.

Having worked on a wide variety of project types, including corporate, hospitality, retail, public and higher education, Taylor has the ability to see the big picture, keep the team on track, and come up with cohesive, efficient solutions. His strong leadership ensures that the correct team is assembled and mentored to effectively deliver design excellence. He has received multiple local and international project design awards, published in numerous national trade publications and earned honors for service of dedication as membership chair of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA). For NBA, he is concentrating on corporate, multifamily and mixed-use complexes with hospitality components and thematic design elements.

Taylor attended the University of Alabama and has a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design. He is developing standards for quality control along with a new education platform for the interiors studio. He is enhancing professional development in the interiors studio through “eye on design,” subject matter expert training, quality control revisions and design reviews.
