The Principals of Gregory Lombardi Design are pleased to announce the promotion of the following individuals: Emily Guertin to Senior Associate and Ted Smiley to Associate 3. As design and management professionals, Emily and Ted are talented leaders in landscape architecture and their broad expertise reinforces GLDI’s collaborative practice.
Emily’s role within the firm has been to strengthen our presence throughout southern New England. With 15 years of experience in the field including her 9 years with GLDI, Emily has successfully managed complex projects in Connecticut, Rhode Island and New York. Her passion for plants and knowledge of regional plant palettes and materials, along with a hands-on approach to construction, result in carefully crafted spaces that have led to her recognition in the firm and with our discerning clientele.
Having been with GLDI for 12 years, Ted Smiley is a leader of the firm’s furniture and accessories division delivering exceptional outdoor settings for our most discerning clients from Palm Beach to Manhattan to New England and Cape Cod. Ted focuses on the importance of unique and well-crafted pieces, managing vendors and installations, attending designer shows across the US and Europe, and designing some pieces himself. He has a passion for spaces that people closely inhabit and experience first-hand including urban roof decks and terraces. As a former board member of the Cactus and Succulent Society in Massachusetts, Ted brings his knowledge and love of arid landscapes to these often extreme environments. Over the last 20+years, Ted has helped design, install, and maintain over a dozen annual public garden beds as part of The Goldfish Pond Association in Lynn, MA.
