At Cortland, one of the country’s largest apartment operators, Darla Dillon oversees an in-house agency that designs living spaces for more than 75,000 apartment residents in each of the company’s regions.
Dillon leads teams in executing high-quality design standards, while keeping brand designs on-trend and cutting-edge for all of Cortland’s communities and offices. She also oversees product development, managing current trends and introducing new designs to create a look and feel at Cortland’s communities that align with the company’s brand and mission.
Dillon’s design background includes luxury spaces – from yachts to private planes and mansions – but she’s passionate about creating beautiful, timeless spaces that transcend design and inspire vibrant living, no matter the scope or scale of the project.
