Orlando, FL, July 17, 2023 Schenkel Shultz today announced the appointment of Kristen Trumpp as Senior Interior Designer.

Trumpp brings more than 15 years of design, management, and technical experience to Schenkel Shultz and will lead the firm’s suite of interior designers to influence the design process from the inside-out in concert with the architectural team.

“We were looking for a well-rounded interior designer with architectural skills to lead the Interior Design Team,” said Partner and Design Lead, Ekta Desai. “Kristen brings diverse and relevant experience in hospitality, high-end residential, and conceptual site planning. I’m confident that with her distinctive talents and personality, she will help spearhead design thinking and imagine unique spaces and experiences for our clients.”

Trumpp is credited with serving as lead project designer for multiple Marriott and Wyndham projects, including the historic Marriott Tribute in Macon, Georgia.
