Getting to Know Meaghan Lloyd, Frank Gehry’s Chief of Staff

An interesting “local makes good” story from Springfield, Illinois’ local paper, the State Journal-Register, about Meaghan Lloyd, Frank Gehry‘s long-time right hand. As the paper tells it, after having had Gehry as a visiting professor at Yale, she struck up a friendship with the famous architect and wound up getting him to hire her on and bring her out to work in his Los Angeles headquarters (pre-move). Shortly thereafter, she would be named his chief of staff, where she’s overseen the business, clients and press. She’s extra complimentary of Gehry, of course, given that she’s being interviewed about her boss, but it’s still an interesting, inside look at how his shop is run and getting to know one of the unsung heroes behind one of the biggest names in the business.
