The Office Admin / Expediter Role of your interior design business is crucial to being profitable and efficient. It is generally the first one you’ll want to hire, even if it’s part-time. The role is technically 2 roles; the Office Manager and the Expediter combined into a hybrid role for small firms. Until you have enough procurement to justify a dedicated person for all purchasing, combining these two roles is advisable. It is also optimal compared to having a Jr. Designer doing your expediting. The Office Manager and Expediter have the same strengths and personality profile, which makes combining the roles ideal.
