The New York School of Interior Design is pleased to announce the appointment of two new members to its Board of Trustees: Susan Zises Green and David Kleinberg

New York, NY November 22, 2017 – Since completing her design program at The New York School of Interior Design, Susan Zises Green has come to be a leader in the interior design industry – earning critical acclaim for her sophisticated, classic and timeless work. She has participated in the prestigious Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club Decorators Show House eight times, has been recognized by House Beautiful magazine as one of their “Top 100 Designers,” and recently received a 2017 Florida Trust for Historic Preservation Award.  Often quoted as an editorial resource for color and design, Green frequently shares her love for interior design with the public, lecturing at art galleries, auction houses, and design centers throughout the U.S.

Beyond creating beautiful homes and comforting interiors, in 2003, Green established her own foundation, Americans We Are a Family, dedicated to supporting the neediest local and national charities in America.

A graduate of Harcum College in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, Green is an avid philanthropist. She is on the board of the New York City Opera, Women’s Campaign Fund, City Meals on Wheels, The Garden Conservancy, Nantucket Preservation Trust and Harcum College.

One of the most respected names in interior design, David Kleinberg has created a body of work that is wide-ranging in style, yet always modern in sensibility.

Kleinberg, a graduate of Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, has a thirty-five year career servicing a roster of international clients with residences spanning the globe. After a sixteen-year tenure, he left Parish-Hadley Associates in 1997, and started David Kleinberg Design Associates.

Kleinberg published his monograph Traditional Now: Interiors by David Kleinberg, and in the same year was inducted into Interior Design magazine’s Hall of Fame. He was recently honored with the Albert Hadley Lifetime Achievement Award by the New York School of Interior Design. Kleinberg was first named to Architectural Digest’s “The AD 100” list in 2012 and has been a member of Elle Décor’s A-List since 2011. He serves on the Board of Directors of ACRIA – a New York City-based non-profit and community-based AIDS service organization.

“Susan and David are great additions to the Board of Trustees,” said NYSID president David Sprouls. “Both are supporters of higher education and we are fortunate to have them involved at this level, where their ideas and insights will be invaluable to the college.”
