Forty Under 40: Samantha Klickna, Case Design/Remodeling

A designer’s professional confidence and willingness to take risks inspires clients to push boundaries

April 5, 2017

Director of Project Development

Case Design/Remodeling, Bethesda, Md.

2016 Revenue: $30 million

150 employees

Best Practice: As someone who is passionate about aesthetics and layout, Klickna’s modern, youthful designs are fresh and engaging but also punctuated with classic, timeless elements to give her work staying power. Her key to success: Never be afraid to take risks. As director of project development for one of the nation’s most renowned design/build companies, Klickna works closely with clients from project start to finish. As part of her career development, Klickna has grown from being timid about making certain design recommendations—especially when clients push back—to feeling confident in her vision and being unafraid to “put herself out there.” This confidence was clearly evident on a project where Klickna recommended distinctive shiplap siding for a home and had to convince the client it was the right choice. She succeeded, and the work was received with incredible praise. Klickna encourages all designers to be confident in their ideas and to take the time to win over their clients.
