Paragon Group, specialising in architecture and interior architecture, has announced a series of promotions to associate level. From data centres to sports complexes and iconic office developments, the Group’s diverse experience and expertise continues to stand it in good stead in the property and construction market, which has been hard-hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.
“I am very grateful that I not only get to grow in my calling, but have the privilege to cultivate the careers of my colleagues. My success is only measured by their success,” says Antoinette Kloppers, Senior Associate at Paragon Architects.
“I am very excited about the new challenges posed by my senior role. I will continue to strive for excellence in design and to learn and grow every day, while continuing to mentor the younger generation of talented designers,” says Kirsty Schoombie, Senior Associate at Paragon Interface.
Anthony Karam says his new role as Associate at Paragon Interface is “a great opportunity to further develop within the design fraternity. I am proud to be part of our constantly evolving knowledge base and excited to keep pushing the boundaries at the forefront of South African excellence in interior design on the world stage.”
“I am excited to start a new role at Paragon Architects,” says Associate Kim Newell. “I look forward to solving the challenges that lie ahead with the great team we have.”
Paragon Interface Senior Associate Kirstin Cavanagh concurs that “it is the dynamic people in our office that make every day less ordinary and more inspiring.” Kirstin has progressed from a candidate architect straight out of university 11 years ago to her latest role.
“I feel privileged and excited to take on this responsibility for Paragon Architects. It is going to be challenging, but I look forward to it,” says Senior Associate Taz-Wynne Superman.
“I guess it is a bit surreal to look at the journey, as you are always learning and being mentored, and somewhere in that time you start to become both a mentor and mentee. In that sense, I look forward to the challenges ahead and solving them with a great team and support system,” says Paragon Architects Associate Jarred Pincus.
“I am very thankful that my skills and value have been recognised. It means a lot to me and my family. I am very excited to be moving up to the next level, learning new things and to continually support Paragon Architects while doing the work I love,” says Associate Warren Wesson.
