Architectural Coatings, a Northern Virginia-based producer of architectural grade finishes for interior and exterior wall coatings, and its subsidiary, Senza Finé, are proud to welcome Michelle Daikos as the new Senior Architect and Design Representative. With over a decade of design industry experience, Daikos will support customers in the Metro D.C. and Virginia territory.
Michelle holds a Master’s in Interior Design from George Washington University. From 2007 to 2012, she was the Northern Virginia account manager for MDC Wallcoverings, where she excelled in the fast-paced sales environment and, in 2009, she was honored as MDC’s top producer.
From 2012 to 2017, Michelle pursued a lifelong dream of founding a startup company. Her client base consisted of more than 300 customers, and she grew revenue from $10,000 to $200,000. Then, in 2018, Michelle felt a calling back to her real passion: design.
When asked what brought her back to the industry, Michelle said: “It’s so much fun to see what the A&D (Architecture and Design) community creates. Every project is different, and I truly enjoy working with my clients from schematic design to the final installation of the custom finish that we created together. I find it so rewarding.”
“We are proud to welcome her to the team,” said Senza Finé’s President Dave Wiegel. “With her passion for design and wealth of industry experience, we are confident that you will find Michelle as pleasant as she is knowledgeable. She will be an asset to our organization, and to our customers as they seek to stunning wall finishes to customize their design projects.”
Outside of work, Michelle enjoys spending time with her animals and being active, naming spin classes, yoga, hiking, and swimming as just a few of her favorite activities. Vegan cooking is a hobby as well, and she isn’t afraid of a little adventure, like skydiving from 9,000 feet.
Architectural Coatings & Senza Finé are proud to offer Michelle Daikos’ industry expereince and professional expertise to the Metro and Virginia Architect and Design territory. Anyone in need of architect and design service or support in the area is encouraged to contact Michelle at 703-929-8093 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
