Rachel Switzky named inaugural director of Siebel Center for Design

Rachel Switzky will soon be named the first Director of the Siebel Center for Design at the U of I.

Fun fact: Switzky once played in local bands Sarge and Corndolly. Pretty rad.

From the U of I News Bureau:

Rachel Switzky, an executive director at international design and consulting firm IDEO, has been selected to be the inaugural director of the Siebel Center for Design at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Switzky, who earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in industrial design at Illinois, will begin the new role June 18, pending approval by the University of Illinois Board of Trustees.
