Meet Melissa Hoover
Crimson has been growing our team over the past few months. We are so excited to share with you that we have a new Procurement Coordinator, Melissa Hoover.
A native of Columbus, Ohio, Melissa is a lover of food, fun, and comfort. When asked why she is a procurement professional, she responded with the following:
“I’ve always had a passion for interior design, and I appreciate the thought that it is a “form of expression.” I love that with procurement, I could help bring our designers’ concepts alive by assisting them in acquiring these amazing “forms of expression” into our clients’ spaces.”
(from Globally Inspired, one of Melissa’s favorite Crimson Design Group projects)
Melissa has definitely jumped right in to make sure that our clients’ are getting the most out of their spaces and experience. With her innate ability to help others, a quality that is helpful within procurement and expediting, Melissa was born to assess and apply. However, she was not always in procurement.
Originally, Melissa was in the medical field. After some time, she noticed that it wasn’t for her. With a new journey ahead, Melissa decided to go back to school to pursue a degree in fashion merchandising.
“There is always something new happening. Every day is not the same. I enjoy seeing projects end-to-end: form initial states of planning and design, to the middle states of ordering and installing, to the end stage where we have the final product. It is so fun learning design concepts from the designers in the process.”
Here are some fun things about Melissa...

What’s top on your bucket list?
To travel to Greece, Takis [Animal] Shelter, to help volunteer at an animal sanctuary so that I can help these animals know what love is and care for them. I also want to go to the Territorios De Zaguates in Costa Rica. I love animals and am an animal advocate for safety and love.
