Professional Experience

 

Serving as a Director within CBRE’s PJM line of business, Julie Deignan is leading Furniture Advisory Services. Julie works with clients nationally and globally to develop a unique and strategic approach to bidding furniture based on their specific needs. Working with each client to collect and analyze historical purchasing patterns, internal processes and project objectives, she is able to provide bidding recommendations which can garner significant process efficiencies and cost savings.  In addition, she builds a program that creates transparency and accountability, so each client is assured that their furniture spend is compliant with the discounting and terms of the contracts. To date, this service has been able to achieve and demonstrate savings for CBRE and its clients ranging from 5%-28% of the total furniture budget.   

Julie has been in the commercial furnishings and design industries for over 18 years, including 12 years at furniture dealerships, 4 years in Business Development at an Interior Design Firm, and providing Furniture Advisory Services since 2014.
