FrontDoor Communities announced today it has brought on Kelly Scibona as Director of Architecture. In this role, Scibona will develop and manage the firm’s architectural portfolio, manage architectural resources and uphold architectural integrity of all FrontDoor designs.

“As FrontDoor Communities continues to grow its presence in Georgia, we are seeking out the best in the industry to grow our team,” said Terry Russell, chief executive officer of FrontDoor. “Kelly Scibona’s proven leadership abilities make her the perfect person to take on the role of Director of Architecture.”

Scibona started her own firm in 2009 where she focused on sensitive renovations and additions to historic homes. She previously held project management positions with Pak Heydt and Associates in Atlanta and A Classical Studio for Residential Architecture in Norcross, Ga.

“Scibona’s commitment to quality design mirrors that of FrontDoor’s,” Russell said. “Her talent and industry knowledge will be a tremendous asset to our firm.”

Scibona earned a bachelor’s degree in architecture from the University of Notre Dame. During a year-long program in Rome, she traveled extensively through Europe studying classical architecture.

Scibona will be based at FrontDoor’s headquarters in Atlanta. FrontDoor has communities in metro Atlanta; Orlando; Naples, Fla., and Charleston, S.C.
