Holly Hunt
A native of Texas, Holly Hunt
describes her design centric business
of showrooms and product for interior
designers, as a business of 10,000
details. If we believe Malcolm Gladwell,
author of Outliers, it also takes 10,000
hours to be really good at anything.
So, Holly has been very busy for 27
years in the business of interior design
and vows to stay at it until she gets
it right! Holly leads HOLLY HUNT,
the company, as President and CEO
and is intimately involved in design
and creative work.
In 1983, Holly began in the interior
design business by buying a small
showroom in Chicago's Merchandise
Mart, which she filled with the best
of class luxury designer collections.
She subsequently expanded her reach
into all major U.S. markets. The HOLLY
HUNT brand has become the premier
design and distribution entity for high
end interior furnishings in the country.
She has often been credited with
raising the bar in interior design
showrooms. Home & Garden magazine
recognized HOLLY HUNT as the Top
Showroom in their Best of the Best
awards three years in a row. The award
was voted on by interior designers
across the U.S.
As an arbiter of refined taste,
her eye for what is now and what's
next has led to her success. Today,
the company designs, produces,
and presents collections of furniture,
lighting, textiles, leather, and continues
to represent the best of designer
collections.
Holly resides in Chicago where she
serves on the board of the School
of the Art Institute and the National
Council of the Aspen Art Museum.

Max S. Shangle, president of Harrington
College of Design, has been a design
educator for more than 30 years having
served as an adjunct faculty, professor,
program chair and dean. His teaching
experience includes; public vocational
school, adult education and college
both BFA and MBA. He received his
Bachelor of Science degree at Western
Michigan University and his Master of
Science degree at Ferris State University.
Max is a recognized professional
in the furniture design community,
has served as a juror of the Pinnacle
Awards (ASFD) and numerous student
design competitions. He has lectured
both nationally and internationally
on furniture design and the furniture
industry, contributed to and written
several articles for trade publications.
In addition, he has served as an expert
witness on design infringement and
product liability in furniture related
cases both nationally and internationally.
Max is an experienced builder of
programs and curricula at the collegiate
level leading to accreditation. He is
delighted to be at Harrington College
of Design and is looking forward to
living and working in Chicago.

Jamie Velez
Jaime Velez is a director in charge
of the Interiors Group in the Chicago
office of SOM. Mr. Velez has participated
in a large number of architectural and
interiors projects in the U.S., Europe,
and Asia. His role in the design process
provides insight for identification of
opportunities in the feasibility phases
of a project. He implements and guides
the design strategy and then coordinates and develops the concepts with
the architectural and engineering
disciplines and consultants.
Mr. Velez brings to his interiors projects
a strong architectural background,
which, in conjunction with his knowledge of furniture and detailing,
generates integral designs with a high
degree of consistency from the whole
to the pieces. He believes that a space
should reflect the unique characteristics of the culture of its users. Building
on the strong interiors tradition at SOM,
his projects possess a timeless quality
and a strong sense of order and clarity.
