Paola Moya

Paola is the CEO and Founder of Moya Design Partners and FORMA by MOYA. She is at the forefront of the company’s innovative direction and strategic growth. A Bogota, Colombia native, Paola’s work ethic and drive for excellence are part of FORMA by MOYA’s DNA.

An Architecture Graduate from The Catholic University of America, Paola’s career has been marked by the conviction that design plays a key role in improving communities and bringing about positive transformation. From the onset, Paola’s work reflects her values, helping clients exceed expectations and guiding teams through complex projects that effect change in the community. This desire to take Design further led Paola to obtain a Certificate in Business Administration from The University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School Executive Education program and create her studio: Moya Design Partners.

Paola’s many accolades directly result from the strong culture of collaboration she has built in MOYA and FORMA. From the Washington Business Journal recognizing Paola as one of the region’s “Power 100 Playmakers” in 2020 to the invitation by the White House as part of a selected Latinx Businesswomen for a conversation with Vice President Kamala Harris in 2021, Paola’s success is built upon a strong team, a client-first approach, and a relentless pursuit for design excellence that she instills on every single project.

If anything can match Paola’s love for design, it is her love for traveling and discovering new cultures and countries. She’s always willing to expand her horizons and find inspiration for her work and life in the most remote corners and diverse cultures.
