IP Design Group Promotes Hiatt and Butler
IP Design Group is proud to announce the promotions of Jessica Hiatt, CTS-D to associate principal and Jacob Butler, RCDD to project manager.
Over the course of their careers, Jessica and Jacob have displayed great leadership and professionalism within the firm, in the industry, and in their community. Involved in organizations such as Audiovisual and Integrated Experience Association (AVIXA) and Building Industry Consulting Service International (BICSI), they are always learning new ways technology design can better the built environment. Jessica and Jacob also mentor their fellow team members inside and outside IP Design Group, passing along their knowledge and inspiring collaboration that leads to better, more integrated technology solutions.
Jessica first went into the University of Nebraska—Lincoln’s architectural engineering program to pursue mechanical engineering; however, one acoustics presentation changed the course of her education and career. Recognizing a natural connection between acoustics and audiovisual, she decided to pursue this area, as well. Understanding technology’s role in daily life, Jessica incorporates it into her designs so that spaces are easy to use and integrate into the environment in which they are being designed. Not only does this benefit technology users today, but makes buildings more adaptable to future technologies currently in development.

Jacob learned about the communications industry from an early age hearing many of his family members discuss their work for the local telephone company. While he has worked on many projects, he finds K-12 projects especially significant. He designs technology systems for schools and other education spaces that make learning more accessible to all students. Jacob believes good technology designers take the initiative to coordinate with all project consultants to achieve an integrated, cohesive design. He sees this as a great opportunity for technology designers, allowing them to provide more well-rounded designs moving forward.
