Vogue Interiors Principal Debbie DeMaria, ASID, IDS, announced that Jo Carter, the award-winning design firm’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, has been selected to serve as a member of the Florida Homebuilder Association’s (FHBA’s) Sales and Marketing Council (FSMC) Board of Directors. FHBA’s FSMC was founded to help builders sell homes more effectively. The council offers educational opportunities, awards and recognition programs, and sales and marketing tools to its members. The council is dedicated to developing and promoting skills and professionalism in the sale and marketing of new homes through education, an interchange of ideas, recognition of outstanding achievement and community involvement. This strong united council serves as the catalyst to bind all components of the home building industry.
A native Ohioan, Carter has more than 30 years of sales and marketing experience in the construction industry. She was named Vogue Interiors’ Vice President of Sales and Marketing last November and is currently serving as the Chair of the Collier Building Industry Association’s (CBIA) Sales and Marketing Council. Carter has been named recipient of CBIA awards on three occasions, including being named Marketing Director of the Year in 2014, receiving the 2017 Leadership Award for her work as Chair of CBIA’s 2017 Parade of Homes, and receiving the 2018 Outstanding Leadership Award for her sales and marketing expertise. In 2015, Carter created and operated the Interior Design Broker, a firm that used Carter’s “Match-Maker Concept” to connect investors, builders, and homeowners while finding their perfect interior designer.
“We are extremely pleased the FHBA’s FSMC has acknowledged Jo Carter’s caliber and experience by naming her to serve on its Board,” said DeMaria. “Her knowledge of the new home construction and remodeling industry is exceptional. She is well known, admired, and respected throughout the greater Southwest Florida market and beyond, and has well established relationships with key decision makers within the industry. Those relationships, her knowledge, and her experience will serve the goals and objectives of the FSMC well on a statewide level. At the same time, Jo will continue to play a major role in expanding Vogue Interiors’ already impressive standing in residential and commercial interior design.”
“Being named to the FSMC’s Board is a tremendous honor,” said Carter. “The FSMC is responsible and responsive to the needs of the new home buying public and the markets it serves throughout the State of Florida. It provides an effective forum for the exchange of ideas with local, regional, and national experts in the sales and marketing of new homes. It also acts in cooperation with other industry related organizations to enhance communications, coordination of activities, legislative actions, community involvement and special projects. I am excited to join the other Board members in their ongoing efforts to positively impact the homebuilding industry in Florida and throughout the country.”
