Chief Operations Officer
Maggie Moon is particularly well qualified to run the daily operation of Wine & Design’s franchise network because she is a Wine & Design studio owner herself. On weekdays, you will find Maggie in Wine & Design’s corporate office managing relationships with studio owners and overseeing training and quality control. Nights and weekends, she is in her Durham studio with clients and artists.
“I am better at both jobs because of the dual experience,” Maggie says. “After several years of onboarding new franchise owners, I knew having a studio of my own was something I really wanted to pursue.”
Having previously worked in finance and special events, Maggie was considering pursuing an MBA when Wine & Design founder Harriet Mills persuaded her to join the company’s leadership team.
“I was looking for an opportunity to work in a creative industry and use my management experience and business background,” Moon said. “Joining the Wine & Design team allowed me to do all of that.”
Maggie’s two jobs don’t leave her much free time, but when she can get away, she enjoys traveling – Iceland has been one of her favorite destinations, and she once spent two weeks hiking through France and Spain. Maggie and her husband live in Durham with their young daughter.
