Tangram, a curator of highly creative commercial interior environments and workspaces, has announced the appointment of new team leaders for its offices in Newport Beach, Fresno and Bakersfield.


Kellie Reed, who has served as General Manager for the firm’s offices in Fresno and Bakersfield, will now assume responsibility as Sales Director, Orange County, for the Tangram office in Newport Beach. She will also serve as Director of the firm’s overall healthcare practice. Reed joined Tangram in 2012 after 13 years as a highly successful sales professional for a Fresno-area furniture dealership. During her tenure in the Fresno office, she led a tripling of sales volume for that location. Reed subsequently was appointed to lead the company’s office in Bakersfield when it opened in 2017. She sees strong opportunities for growth in Orange County across the board, as well as in the vibrant and growing healthcare market companywide.


In conjunction with that move, Alyssa Armesto will advance from her position as a sales executive in the firm’s Newport Beach location to assume the role of General Manager in Fresno. Armesto joined Tangram in 2012 and is looking forward to returning to her hometown in an expanded role with Tangram. Her focus will be on growing Tangram’s presence in the area by applying the company’s consultative, value-added approach to unleashing the potential of the workplace to build positive results for customers’ businesses.


Bakersfield will also see a new presence with Alison Hickman as Regional Manager. Hickman is a 15-year resident of Bakersfield and comes to Tangram following seven years as a successful local business owner with expertise including residential and commercial interior design. She anticipates applying her skills in identifying and optimizing the functional goals for spaces, while building strong relationships between the company and the community as the city undergoes a revitalization.


“It’s a very exciting time for three of our anchor offices serving Southern and Central California with the appointment of these highly professional individuals with proven capabilities for leadership of these teams,” said Tangram President and CEO Joe Lozowski. “We believe their backgrounds and talents are a perfect match for helping organizations in their respective locations achieve their unique goals for their workforce and future growth.”
