Jennifer Delmas

Jennifer Delmas

President

Jennifer serves as the 2018 South Florida Chapter President and is in her 4th year on the NEWH Board. Prior to joining the hospitality industry, Jennifer received her Bachelor’s in Business Administration from the University of Miami with a double major in Business Management and Legal Studies. In pursuit of what she felt was the ideal career path for such a major, she worked as a Law Firm Administrator for over 11 years. In 2014, Jennifer decided to change her path for a more creative and trend-setting industry when she joined EoA (Edge of Architecture) as it’s Director of Operations. She has sense never looked back and truly enjoys all of the amazing industry professionals and creative souls that she is able to interact with on a daily basis.

Christian Triana

Christian Triana

VP/Administration

My design work is characterized by holistic approaches to design problems through research and analysis of a client’s key identity attributes and goals. I believe design should motivate and inspire people through innovation, make bold statements, generate optimistic attitudes towards life, create cultural connections, and contribute to a strong sustainable society. I’ve worked on a wide variety of projects ranging from retail design to hospitality and multifamily developments in which I not only created functional spaces but also developed the ultimate “life-style” for the end user. I’ve also been delighted to showcase my design strengths through programming, conceptual development, space planning, FF&E specifications, and construction administration in the US as well as Latin America.

Jeanette Naranjo

Secretary

As a proud University of Florida alumnus, Jeanette received her degree in Public Relations with outside concentrations in Italian and Portuguese studies. As fate would have it, a casual conversation on a plane with her C2C Designs Director of Operations eventually led to a change in careers. Currently, she is a territory manager for C2C Designs, a custom furniture manufacturer, and is thrilled to be on the NEWH South Florida board— as it’s helped her better understand the industry, engage with powerhouse clients and make friends along the way!
