Jill Barton is the founder and owner of Barton Interiors. Jill received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Oregon in 1990 through the College of Architecture and Interior Design and is ASID certified. After working for three years at a prestigious interior design firm in Portland, Oregon, she moved to Boulder in 1993 and began working with Gibson & Sawyer, LLC, a well-established architecture firm focusing on the commercial sector. Jill worked with the architects in the interior design needs for their projects. During this time, she has developed relationships with a number of community, professional, and supplier contacts throughout the Boulder and Greater Denver area. Jill plans to leave the firm on favorable terms at the end of the year.
With her new role at Barton Interiors, Jill will oversee all aspects of the design process and all business operations. Jill's responsibilities include all aspects of establishing the business, marketing, buying, bookkeeping and financial dealings.
The organization structure is simplistic. Jill manages all employees and professional contacts, and will be interfacing with more than 12 account executives/vendors. Jill will determine resources requirements and monitor expenses for all aspects of the firm.
Jill will act as a sole proprietor without employees at this point. Contract labor may required for upholstery and fabrication purposes, but that will be included in the cost of good for each client's project. Jill's salary will begin at a modest $1,200 per month, increase quarterly, and then is projected at $2,400 per month for year two and $3,000 for year three.
