The 2017 year was a transformative one for the IDO Team. We celebrated our 25th year in business, expanded our team and completed a record number of projects for a record number of clients.
Little did we know, 25 years ago, a dream to create a firm dedicated to Commercial Interior Design, was a big dream.
We are grateful to many who have believed in our dream; our clients, our business partners and fellow design professionals. Our IDO team would not exist without this network of professionals all striving to make the world a better place to live, work and learn.
Our success story has many champions, but one who has influenced us the most has been Clay Mathile and the Aileron organization in Dayton Ohio. A quote from Clay’s playbook reads; “There is a difference between positional authority in a company and pure leadership.” This is so true at IDO, where leadership continues to develop at every level. Our big dream for 2018 and beyond is to usher in a new generation of leaders who, together with our current leadership, will continue to create the most successful and sustainable IDO organization for all our stakeholders. T. S. Eliot said it best:
“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language. And next year’s words await a new voice.”
Cheers to everyone from the bottom of our grateful IDO hearts for your continued belief in our dreams, our ideas and our success!
As we welcome the New Year, we wish you all the very best for 2018!
