Aran is responsible for sales and business development throughout Florida and the Caribbean Islands, as well as the yachting industry throughout North America.
Born and raised in Wyoming, Aran had an infinity for adventure and wide open spaces. This love for adventure drove her to working onboard luxury mega yachts, and ultimately landed her in South Florida where she dedicated herself to the design industry. Having worked on some of the worlds most renowned yachts in some of the world’s most exciting destinations, her passion for design, space planning and art history was ignited.
Aran has spent more than 15 years in the interior design industry, primarily in the yachting, textiles and plumbing industry. She spent the last five years as marketing manager and yachting expert at a leading luxury plumbing company and before that, spent five years as a textile designer at Valley Forge Fabrics, one of the world’s largest suppliers to the hotel/hospitality industry. Prior to joining Valley Forge Fabrics, she held positions in the domestic design industry, as well as international yachting design. During her career, Aran has worked on a variety of luxury hospitality projects including the Boca Beach Club, Delano in Miami and Las Vegas, Cosmopolitan, Miramar and MGM Grand in Las Vegas, as well as numerous projects with W, Trump, Marriott, Hilton, Westin and Ritz Carlton hotels.
Given Aran’s combined knowledge of sales, design and marketing, as well as her experience working with luxury clientele, she is able to see a project from multiple angles, making her the perfect choice for this challenging and exciting new role at THG-Paris. Aran’s vast knowledge and contacts in the yachting industry, coupled with THG’s dominance in the yachting field, makes her instrumental in THG’s initiative to strengthen momentum within that community. She also plans to continue to support the design trade community and form new relationships in Florida to secure residential, commercial, multi-unit and hospitality projects.
Aran graduated Magna Cum Laud with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. She currently resides in Miami with her family.
