Studio DADO Appoints New COO: Eduardo de Jesus

Boutique design practice sets a foundation for continued growth and success.

MIAMI, FLA (June 25, 2024) — Studio DADO, the Miami-based design practice, has named Eduardo de Jesus as their first-ever Chief Operating Officer. Eduardo is an experienced, tested administrator who understands how to advance efficiency and clarity to a growing business looking to continue its trajectory of success. DADO, which is celebrating its eighth anniversary this year, is coming off consecutive years of growth and profitability, including the launch of three major design efforts in the last 12 months: Norwegian Viva, Oceania Vista, and Regent Seven Seas Grandeur.

“We’ve always enjoyed our reputation as a boutique design group but we’ve never acted like a small company,” says Jorge Mesa IIDA, LEED GA, one of DADO’s four founding partners. “We like to think big, and Eduardo is the ideal professional to help transport us to our next level. We couldn’t be more pleased to have him as part of the team.”

Eduardo is a seasoned professional who specializes in setting out the administrative infrastructure essential to organizational growth, health and efficiency. He has worked with such organizations as Sedgwick, MetLife and Aetna, among others.

“DADO is an incredible company,” says Eduardo. “The talent and creativity are world-class, and the energy here is palpable. My mission is to build on their strengths and expand the systems and processes that will allow their creative sparks to fly even higher while maintaining the agility of a small practice.”

Eduardo will oversee the day-to-day management of the company, focusing on billing, accounting and human resources. Since its founding, DADO has committed to establishing a sound business foundation, allowing them to focus on their reason for being: designing unforgettable, soul-enriching spaces for the hospitality world.
