About Us

Design Manager is the leading project management and accounting software for interior designers. Created in 1984 to respond to the requests of local interior design firms, it expanded into a nationwide software company and became one of the first providers of cloud-based design software. Because design firms have specific needs that cannot be answered by conventional software, it is our mission to provide a product that is dedicated to serving the design community. We deliver software that saves time, money, and frustration, while eliminating countless hours of paperwork.

Joe Kissel

Director of Engineering

Joe-Kissel--About-Us-PageHe loves carpentry, mountain biking, and the Philadelphia Phillies, and he first programmed DM on a DOS computer—over two decades ago. Because he has programmed our software since a few years after its inception, he’s an expert at designing it to be comprehensive and user-friendly. When he’s not programming or directing research and development, he’s probably managing Design Manager’s accounting and financials.

Brad Martin

Director of Customer Experience

Brad-Martin--About-Us-PageOur head trainer, he instructs clients on how to correctly use DM, and if you’ve attended one of our webinars, you’ve seen his expertise firsthand. He’s been working with our software for more than fifteen years, his vocabulary is astoundingly vast, and he drinks coffee like it’s nobody’s business. His interests include his kids, listening to his extensive music library, and ending the day with a pint of ale.

Lindsay Paoli

Director of Sales and Marketing

"Lindsay Lindsay is a University of Delaware graduate (go Blue Hens!) and joined the Design Manager team after spending a few years working as a meeting planner and marketing coordinator. Her dad was a builder and her mom was an interior designer, so pair that background with her outgoing personality and she fits right in to the fast-paced Design Manager environment. She has enjoyed spending late nights helping the company grow. In her spare time though, you can find her taking care of her two adorably demanding toddlers, traveling, or cheering on her beloved Philadelphia sports teams with her friends and family.

She is an adept Photoshop user, enjoys gardening, and loves spending time with her family.

Rob Gordon

Senior Client Support Specialist

Rob-Gordon-About-Us-PageBesides his jeep and rock climbing, he loves helping customers and hanging out with his kids. When he refers to certain clients as his friends, we know it’s true. After working with our software and our customers for more than ten years, he knows a lot about tech, accounting and our customers’ specific needs.

Marty Witkosky

IT Specialist

If you visited the Design Manager headquarters in PA, you’d probably see Marty setting up a server while wearing a Microsoft t-shirt and drinking coffee from his favorite mug. For over 15 years, Marty has been maintaining networks for small businesses, so trust us when we say he’s an expert. Marty enjoys being immersed in technology at Design Manager and working with coworkers that love Microsoft almost as much as he does. Besides Microsoft, Marty loves anything Star Wars, watching the history channel, listening to hard rock and metal music, spending time with his family, and working on classic sport cars.
