Associate Director and Global Head of Business Development Sarah Moylan leads the business development team. In this role, she contributes to the strategic development of the office globally, working with potential clients and collaborators to realize their projects with MVRDV.
With over 20 years of working in a range of capacities within the built environment, Moylan’s professional experience extends across several scales, clients, users, participants, communities, cities, and countries, and its versatility lends significant strength in the decisive pursuit of ambitious new opportunities for MVRDV.
As an experienced, licensed Architect in the State of New York, and UCLA graduate with several years’ experience expanding Starbucks’ market in EMEA, Moylan has a unique background combining design and business.
Having worked in many regions, Moylan has found that being open minded and flexible wherever you are enables insight into the many nuances of a country, city, or neighbourhood. As an entry point, sharing food is often her pathway to connect and pick up cultural markers; enthusiasm and curiosity for local fare is an easy opening into conversation and exchange. She maintains that this interaction fuels connection, enabling the design of architecture that supports community.
Moylan has called many places home including Milwaukee, Washington DC, London, Dublin, Los Angeles, New York, and Amsterdam – and is now based in Rotterdam.
“At MVRDV, I’m motivated by the people I work with, whose creativity inspires the promise of a better present, and a better future.” – Sarah Moylan
