Working on such high profile projects for Lee Iaccoca, Starwood Hotels and Regent Four Seasons.
Todd oversees the direction and focus of the team to ensure the success of each project
Producing the live Miss World beauty pageant and BBC’s iconic Top Gear for British TV gave Jules vital experience for the role of Paradigm’s Project Manager - logistics and motivating teams to a tight deadline. “At the Miss World Pageant, I helped manage a crew of 600 to build a floating stage in the Indian Ocean under hard conditions and a tight deadline,” she said. “After that, I knew could handle anything!”
Jules approaches Paradigm’s projects with the same high level of attention to details with deadlines, and trouble-shooting all being part of every-day project management.
"A late delivery of a bathtub impacts the tilers’ work, so it can’t happen and if that tiling isn’t straight or the closet doors are slightly off, I pick up on it. Everything has to be perfect - as if the cameras are rolling”.
Since leaving her native London for Los Angeles, Jules has also indulged her love of property and interiors, finding and styling homes as a consultant relocating media executives for such companies as Netflix, Facebook, and Shell Oil.
As a Los Angeles Native, Liz has always had a strong interest to pursue a career in real estate in the city she grew up in. After attending Brentwood School, she ventured out east to Syracuse University where she graduated summa cum laude as a triple major in real estate, finance, and accounting and a minor in economics.
Putting the knowledge from her studies to use, Liz interned for Paradigm Developers during the summer of 2021. She has since returned as a junior project manager. Liz is an eager learner and, in this role, puts her organizational and communication skills to use on a daily basis. “There’s a lot of moving parts in development, but it’s all about staying on top of things and never losing the motivation or drive to be successful.”
