Bentley joined HLW in December.

Bronte Turner, Managing Director of HLW said,

She will serve as a liaison between client leadership and end-users, aiding with message development, guiding expectations, and overseeing the change management process.

Looking forward, Bentley sees opportunities to redefine the workplace and bring about organizational change. Bentley said,

“Design has the power to communicate the values and aspirations of an organization, and I look forward to the opportunity to reinforce that idea through my work at HLW. I am excited to join such a talented, global team and bring our passion for strategy-driven design into more workplaces.”
