Katie Miner began her career in 1999 as a tradeshow sales manager at AmericasMart after graduating from the College of Charleston. Tackling ever-increasing challenges, she grew to become the Executive Director of Leasing for the Gardens, and later, the Executive Director of Leasing for HOME at AmericasMart.
In her current role as General Manager at ADAC, Katie is responsible for overseeing the overall operation of the Center, including: leasing, marketing, property management and operations. Here, design professionals and enthusiasts will find 60+ showrooms that provide the finest collection of home furnishings, fabrics, wallcoverings, bath and tile, lighting, and more. Her passion is immersed in the design community and she offers an enthusiastic spirit to her team that has established her as an industry leader. Katie has worked with countless notable design icons, such as Darryl Carter, Vern Yip, Charlotte Moss, Nathan Turner, and more.
Always looking to push ADAC beyond its Atlanta-based roots, Katie was instrumental in the Center opening to the public in 2012, creating a luxury experience for both the public and entire Southeast design community. She also serves as a board member for Design Centers International and the Decorative Furnishings Association.
Katie currently resides in East Cobb with her family and her golden retriever, Dixie, and enjoys running, reading a good book, and spending time with family and friends. She is also an avid Atlanta Falcons fan.
