Carole Bilson, President, DMI



SEASON'S GREETINGS! It is hard to believe that another year has come to an end. I am proud to share the 12 DMI Design Value Award winners in this special issue of the dmi:Review. Their hard work and collaboration is paying off in many ways that benefits society, their businesses, and their teams. We at DMI were proud to celebrate and share in their accomplishment, at the recent DMI Leadership Conference DVA Reception and Gala, held at the beautiful Cambridge Hyatt Hotel.


The power of design continues to grow across the S&P 500 — see an update on the DMI Design Value Index (DVI), and the emergence of a new crop of design leaders.


This is the time when I reflect on opportunities for improvement, and the special people who have been very supportive, of DMI and myself. Speaking of special people; there aren't enough words to thank Jerry Kathman, DMI Board Chair, for his selfless giving of his expertise to myself, the DMI Board and the members. This is why he received the 2016 DMI President's Award. It has been a pleasure to get to know him better and to work closely with him these last 2 years. I am happy to say that Jerry will continue his service to DMI in his role on the Board as Emeritus Chair. Bob Schwartz will step up in 2017 to assume the role of Chair, and I look forward to welcoming him to his new role, so we can continue to innovate, and do good work for the benefit of DMI and our members. Lastly, I want to also extend special thanks to Iain Aitchison, Chair of the DMI Advisory Council for his tireless efforts on behalf of DMI around the world.


Thanks also to the DMI Staff, Board of Directors and Advisors for their support. I am honored to continue to serve as your president.
