Leo A Daly
Corporate Director of Hospitality
Managing Principal, Dallas
I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Pat Miller of Leo A Daly about her work and the ﬁrm’s leading role in international hospitality design.
An acknowledged industry leader with an exceptional talent for design, management and client relationship building, Pat possesses more than three decades of experience in many facets of interior design.
Pat Miller is an industry leader in hospitality design with a rare ability to develop innovative solutions to the financing, teaming and problem solving needs of developers, REITs and hotel companies. Over the course of 30 years, she has developed a reputation as a valued resource and confidant in the creation of solutions for hospitality opportunities and is often asked by repeat clients to write complete programs. Under Pat’s leadership, Leo A Daly has been consistently recognized by top-tier hospitality magazines as one of the leading design and architectural firms in the industry.
NC (Nat Coalson): Can we first talk a bit about your role within Leo A Daly; I understand the scope of your job was recently expanded?
PM (Pat Miller): I wear many different hats in the company. The foremost is the Corporate Director of Hospitality for the company as a whole. I set company strategy on how we’ll do business in the hospitality industry as it relates to architecture, interior design and engineering. I oversee pretty much every hospitality project we have.
My second role—which is pretty daunting also—is the Managing Principal of the Dallas office.
These two roles have everything to do with hospitality, which allows me to be focused.
