BKV Group Welcomes New Director of Interior Design, Jackie Wilcox

Industry veteran brings 18 years of experience to role, with recent focus on corporate interior design.

BKV Group is excited to announce that Jackie Wilcox, AIA, LEED AP, IIDA, has joined the firm as Director of Interior Design and Associate Partner in our Chicago practice site. In this role, Jackie will lead interior design for projects based out of the Chicago office, and related business development opportunities, working across market sectors including commercial office, multifamily, government, hospitality, education and student, senior and affordable housing.

“Jackie has a proven track record of creating high-performing interior environments that prioritize the needs and expectations of their occupants, with an emphasis on overall well-being. Her perspective on how lifestyles have changed in response to the pandemic will be invaluable not only to our commercial office clients, many of which are in the process of reassessing their workplace requirements, but also to multifamily and hospitality developers that are incorporating many of the same live-work features into their own projects.”
