Portland, Oregon – Mackenzie Principal and Director of Interiors Susan Higbee announces multiple staff recognitions for their valued contribution to the firm’s success. Kim Ford, Alexis Bauer and Christine Mack will expand their responsibilities and assume the role of Assistant Department Head of Interiors at Mackenzie. They have earned this promotion through their outstanding commitment to client service and project delivery, as well as their internal impact to the performance and growth of the Interiors Department. Higbee said, “With our client focused approach, these individuals will broaden our impact to client service at the highest level across all three branch offices and the regions that we serve.”
Alexis Bauer, with her exceptional experience in workplace design, tenant improvements, and building repositioning projects, will focus on expanding Mackenzie’s interiors practice in the Vancouver and greater Southwest Washington regions. Noteworthy projects in Oregon and Southwest Washington include Mackenzie’s tenant space in The Hudson Building, Vancouver Fire Stations 1 and 2, and multiple tenant improvements at the Wells Fargo Center in downtown Portland. Bauer said, “I am excited to work with our team in Vancouver and continue to help the firm contribute to the economic prosperity of Southwest Washington.”
