For two decades, Lloyd Princeton has been immersed in the design industry, working with interior designers and architects, as well as with showrooms, design centers, manufacturers and vendors. Early on, Lloyd identified the need that design professionals have for sound business advice and guidance to effectively manage and grow their practices. Fulfilling this need became the cornerstone of his consultancy firm, Design Management Company (DMC), which he founded in 1999 to assist his clients with matters such as contract negotiation, pricing, marketing, product licensing and distribution, and, most importantly, staffing.
In addition to running DMC and his other business, iMatchDesigners, Lloyd is a sought after speaker internationally. Lloyd has been the MC, keynote speaker and moderator for numerous conferences, seminars and speaking engagements sponsored by design industry companies and trade organizations.
Lloyd has been featured in publications such as Wall Street Journal, New York Times, The Epoch Times and Hospitality Design, among others. Articles Lloyd has authored can be found on TheEpochTimes.com as well as on his own website, www.dmcnyc.com. The second edition of his book, “Marketing Interior Design,” was published through Allworth Press in New York. Lloyd has also appeared on television, on the Style Network, in the pilot for the series he created, “Matched by Design.”
Lloyd serves the industry as an expert witness, is a registered expert with the GLG Council, and serves on the Board of Trustees for the Coalition for Engaged Education in Santa Monica, CA. Lloyd leads a truly bi-coastal existence, residing in both West Hollywood, CA and New York City, NY, although his work regularly takes him across the U.S., from Houston to Miami, and around the world from London to Russia.
