Located just south of Chicago, Interior Image Group (, one of the hospitality industry's emerging leaders of interior architecture and design, is pleased to announce the addition of Andy Schaidler, NEWH, as their new Business Development Manager.

Mr. Schaidler’s responsibilities will include building the firm’s reputation of their award-winning design work while developing new opportunities for the company to create distinctive designs.  Andy and the IIG team will work with hotel, resort, casino, restaurant, university, and healthcare industries as well as the developers, builders, management groups, and owners of these projects.  IIG also collaborates with architects and other interior design firms in the effort to ensure each project has a unique feel.

Andy Schaidler has served on the International Board of Directors of NEWH: The Hospitality Network for almost a decade.  He is currently the NEWH Chairperson of Expansion for Regional Groups for the not-for-profit organization that raises scholarship grant funds for college students studying hospitality design and architecture.  He has developed national hospitality programs for companies such as AFX, Regal Mirror, Volume Intl, and Lighting Enterprises.

IIG recently won the People's Choice Award for Best Overall Vignette at the 2013 HI Connect Design Show for their spectacular Concierge Lounge design and installation.  IIG also participates in the Hospitality Design: NextGen Forum this June that highlights trend-setting interior designers of today's industry.
