In the Canadian design industry, Shauna Levy is regarded as a steadfast and visionary leader. Appointed in 2012 as President of Design Exchange (DX), Canada's only museum dedicated exclusively to the pursuit of design excellence and the preservation of design heritage, Levy is known for her dedication in positioning the city of Toronto as an international design destination. Established in inventive experience and expertise, Levy's path to being honored with the prestigious Leadership Award of Excellence at this year's Leaders Breakfast Toronto is a dynamic one.
Internationally versatile, Levy was born in Montreal, but grew up in Toronto. She moved to Paris after school where she found she had a passion for design and its influence on everyday life. Because of this influence, Levy believes that design should be accessible to everyone.
According to Levy, "Design is not luxury.

In addition to her role as President of DX, Levy is known for her contribution to co-founding the internationally acclaimed Interior Design Show (IDS) in 1998, which she developed into one of the largest contemporary design fairs in North America. By 2012, the show was bringing in over $40 million in sponsorships and sales and 600,000 visitors.
With her significant contributions to the Toronto design scene, the selection for the Leadership Award of Excellence was unanimous. "Shauna is a design evangelist," said Susan Wiggins, CAE, Hon. IDC, CEO of Interior Designers of Canada (IDC).

"Shauna is innovative, connected, and has been instrumental in cultivating Toronto's design community. Given that our corporate headquarters are in Toronto, we are members of the community and create the growth that has been inspired by Shauna."
"I am very grateful to be this year's recipient of the Interior Designers of Canada and the International Interior Design Association's Leadership Award of Excellence," said Levy. "When I co-founded the Interior Design Show 18 years ago and built it into one of the largest contemporary design fairs in North America, I believed interior design was an oft-overlooked and undervalued design discipline, and I wanted to change that. I wanted to recognize the thoughtful and creative emerging and established individuals responsible for creating the spaces we live in, we work in, and we play in."
As for her upcoming endeavors in the design world, Levy is carrying out her refreshing direction of DX, offering a roster of programs in 2016 that includes talks, workshops, competitions, and more. "[These programs] encourage critical thinking about how interrelated design disciplines offer innovative and tech-driven solutions for the most critical issues facing the world today. Keep your eyes peeled and ears open for a big announcement in January! I encourage everyone to sign up for INDX, Design Exchange's weekly e-newsletter to stay informed," Levy said.
