Forty Under 40: Lisa VanZee, Case Design/Remodeling Indy

Big-picture thinking and an eye for process improvement keep the company moving forward

Design Manager

Case Design/Remodeling Indy, Carmel, Ind. 

2016 Revenue: $8.3 million

42 employees

Best Practice: The daughter of an architect and an interior designer, VanZee is a remarkable residential designer in her own right, with advanced degrees in both computer graphic design and interior design. Her secret to success is to look at the big picture (without sacrificing the details) and to view every aspect of the company with the eyes of an owner, seeing the various elements of a remodeling business as related moving parts of a larger machine. VanZee has made it a point to look at every component of Case Design/Remodeling Indy’s business model with a detailed eye for improvement. As one example, when the company purchased CRM technology, it wasn’t being used effectively. VanZee quickly learned the program at home and then held training sessions for both field and office staff on how to use the new tools.
