It’s a rare personality that can appreciate the intricacies of contemporary design and translate that into dollars and cents on a spreadsheet. Frank’s dual-title mindset has been in place since college –he graduated from SUNY Buffalo with a BA in theatre and political science. Landing in New York, he took a 5-year detour by way of project managing Engagement Economics at Ernst & Young, learning the ins & outs of how to fiscally manage restructuring projects for a Fortune 500 client list. Deciding he could marry his theatrical background with his business experience, he joined blackwalnut and within 2 years was leading the project management & installation team. He now focuses on scoping engagements, working closely with designers & clients to keep budgets on-target, and supervising the project managers and site supervisors that bring the final product to fulfillment on-site.
