As Founder and CEO of Alma|Bernan, Alma brings vision, strength and leadership to her company. Although she routinely oversees projects of great magnitude, she maintains a keen eye over each and every detail; which is why clients seek her out from all over the country when they need the very best. She is known among her colleagues as having an unprecedented eye for design and meticulous attention to detail. Alma moved to New York City in 2012 from Ljubljana, Slovenia. Although this was her first time state-side, she was always drawn to the allure of the city; to the endless opportunity and unbound possibilities that awaited. Alma ran a successful marketing and advertising business in Ljubljana, so she decided to leverage what she learned from leading a successful team and apply that to the vital need that existed here; the need to create awe-inspiring spaces with distinct functionality and luxury to which people would inevitably gravitate.
One job led to another; one referral led to the next; and today A|B employs over 20 individuals and is constantly growing relationships with vendors and clients. The company has always been, and continues to be, referral-based. Alma consistently treats every project as if it’s her own – it’s always personal to her and because of that, each minute detail is imperative. Transparency and honesty is of the utmost importance. Because of this, A|B employs an automated process of construction where the clients and team can access each facet of the project at any given moment.
Today, ALMA|BERNAN has provided both residential and commercial transformations. From Pilates studios, to lobby remodels, to apartment renovations, there’s nothing it can’t accomplish. The company’s work is guided by a shared passion and knowledge among the team; they are driven by their clients’ demands for excellence, and their own obsession with delivering buildings that will leave their mark on this city for generations to come.
