Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) has appointed Meghann Day as president of the Americas. Day assumes the newly created role after more than 16 years with HBA, where she climbed from designer to partner at the firm’s San Francisco office.
In addition to lending her expertise to a range of hospitality projects, Day has expanded HBA’s reach in Mexico. She will continue her efforts to grow HBA Americas’ brand position globally through the empowerment of mentorship of design talent and emphasizing ingenuity.
The design practice also promoted Nicole Sun Chung to the role of vice president of development at its Los Angeles office. Also a member of the HBA team for more than 15 years, Chung will focus on securing and negotiating contracts for U.S. offices and sub-brands. The HBA Miami office also announced a pair of promotions, elevating Man Him Chan and Maya Molina from project directors to associates.
