Professional Builder names Angela Harris a 2015 “40 Under 40”

Professional Builder Magazine, a leading print and digital magazine for the U.S. homebuilding industry, has named Angela Harris one of its “40 Under 40” for 2015.


The 40 Under 40 Awards annually recognize an elite class of “homebuilding superstars” who represent the next generation of industry leaders and innovators in the nation.


Angela was recognized for her entrepreneurial vision, artistic talent, and business acumen as the Principal and Creative Director of the design firm, TRIO Environments. Beginning as a single-employee business in her parents’ basement and weathering an economic downturn, TRIO is now one of the most highly-regarded, fastest growing interior design and visual merchandising firms in the nation. It has helped to generate over $7 billion in revenue for commercial and residential clients and expects to double in size over the next three years, expanding into new national and international markets.


Also impressing the judges were Angela’s commitment to sustainable design—she earned a Master’s in Sustainable Design from Philadelphia University in 2009—and her leadership in the homebuilding industry, where she is a founding member of the Professional Women in Building Committee and chaired the Sales & Marketing Council (SMC) of the Home Builders Association (HBA) of Metro Denver, winning Best SMC in the nation for two years straight.


“Among the many entries, Angela Harris was a standout, with impressive commitments to her profession, industry and community,” said Denise Dersin, Editorial Director of Professional Builder. “Her many talents make Angela an ideal representative of homebuilding’s next generation of leaders.”
