As part of her role as Design and Procurement Manager at Adriatic Marinas, Dragana Parapid is responsible for sourcing every interior design detail within Boka Place – from fabrics and furniture, right down to silverware and uniforms.
Having grown up in Montenegro, and studied in Belgrade, Dragana first joined the Porto Montenegro team over nine years ago having begun at Montevera Design, working as an Interior Design Coordinator. For the past five years, she has worked with Porto Montenegro’s marina operator, Adriatic Marinas, first as an OSE (Operating Supplies and Equipment) Coordinator and a FFE (Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment) Coordinator, before taking up her current position as Design and Procurement Manager for Porto Montenegro’s newest urban neighbourhood, Boka Place.
Working on the development has provided an exciting challenge due to the sheer scope and variety of Boka Place. It has given her the opportunity to simultaneously work on a residential complex, as well as new hotel experience, SIRO from Kerzner International, where she is overseeing everything from research and supply chain management to logistics and installation.
Dragana has just completed the Sales Centre where she created mock-ups of a SIRO hotel guestroom and one of the managed residences, giving an exciting snapshot of the wider project to come.
“What I enjoy most about my job is working with such a great team – I’m constantly inspired and learning from such a talented and diverse group of people from different nationalities and backgrounds, who each bring a fresh perspective and insight. There’s nothing that compares to in-person interactions to build deeper connections and relationships, and this is something that I’m really looking forward to again as we move out of the pandemic. It has been a pleasure to work on the new marketing suite and bring our new urban neighbourhood, Boka Place, to life through showrooms for our prospective buyers.”
