“What a rock star group—I feel incredibly lucky to have worked with some of the most talented people in the design industry and to feel so supported by them,” said Caponigro. “Schumacher is on fire and I know we are going to accomplish great things. The best part of it for me is that I'll still be working with all my favorite people, just in a different way.”
