Walker Zanger Press Release

W.I.L.D. NEWSLETTER – MAY 10, 2022

The original American stone and tile company, Walker Zanger, has partnered with business networking group Women In Luxury Design (W.I.L.D.) to co-host their 2022 event.

Wanting to give back and promote a culture of women empowerment, Walker Zanger has proudly established a partnership with W.I.L.D. to help encourage and build quality business connections among women to increase their power and equality in the corporate world. The brand wholly believes in diversity and inclusion as pillars for building better 
businesses and support communities around it.

The company knows a thing or two about the power of women in the luxury design industry, as it and its parent company, Mosaic Companies, have not shied away from employing a host of influential women at all levels of the company, notably Suzi Portugal – Vice President of Design and Sourcing.

Women have long been a driving force in the industry, but for long have had their contributions minimized. However, in recent years, women have been increasingly recognized for their impact on luxury design, which is long due.  In a way, partnering with the Woman in Luxury Design is our way of paying tribute to the trailblazers while also supporting this incredible transformation.” According to Walker Zanger’s parent firm, Mosaic Companies, Sr. Marketing Director Nauro Rezende Jr.

The event, hosted by Jennifer Convy, TV host, producer and design extraordinaire, will happen on June 29th in Los Angeles, CA.
