The AG&Co Team
AMANDA GREAVES, NCIDQ, CSL
With a strong passion for design and a clear dedication to hard work, Amanda Greaves established AG&Co in 2010. Her motivation, tenacity, and poise are the base of the AG&Co culture which is evident in all of their projects. Amanda's desire for constant and never ending improvement within her own personal life flows over seamlessly into the culture, atmosphere and attitudes of the entire team. By creating an atmosphere full of support, freedom of expression, and flexibility in schedules and styles of each individual > Amanda believes the environment in which we all work should be productive & effective as well as fun & motivating.
After graduating from Marymount University with a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Interior Design in 1998, for over 20 years Amanda has been practicing design, business development and project management within the interior design and construction industries. While involved in the trades and disciplines of her career, she has gained a significant amount of experience within the aspects of team building, and personal coaching / personal development.
Amanda's life outside of the design world is just as colorful and dynamic as her company. Her enthusiasm for hiking, boating (anything outdoors, actually), travel (national and international), dabbling in culinary arts (self proclaimed 'foodie'), yoga/pilates, and attending growth/empowerment seminars and events help to create the breadth and depth of who Amanda truly is.
Amanda recently completed her first book: The Chameleon Diaries, Designing A Life Worth Changing For, which will be published in February 2024. She is also a sought after motivational public speaker - focusing on the topics of Women's Empowerment, Embracing Change, Communication and Relationships.

REGAN COUTO, NCIDQ
Regan was born into a world of design, and had been preparing for her career long before she could even walk. Her mother owned and operated her own drafting firm, which heavily influenced Regan’s passion for design. As a child, Regan spent most of her time at the office surrounded by tape measures, trace and blueprints. As a young adult, Regan started to assist her mother with design projects, often times traveling to active job sites. This is when her love for the industry really started to blossom.
Regan earned her bachelors degree in Interior Design with a concentration in Sustainable Design and a minor in Spanish from Endicott College (Beverly, MA 2014). While at Endicott, she traveled to Spain and Denmark, further broadening her design pallet.
Regan has been a part of the AG&Co team since 2011, holds her NCIDQ certification (National Council for Interior Design Qualification). Regan is passionate about mentoring and teaching others about the design industry, and has been an integral part of the growth and development of AG&Co.
She loves all things related to design, and strives to create spaces that exceed the expectations of her clients.
As Vice Principal and Lead Designer, Regan is the primary "go to" with a majority of the AG&Co Clients, and maintains the highest level of integrity while graciously representing the company, and her passion for design.
Outside of the office Regan spends family time with her husband, daughter, and two mini dachshunds.
Allie grew up on the North Shore fascinated by how people interact with their surroundings, and how their mark is left on different spaces and places. With a background in Anthropology, she started working in the non-profit world, helping to develop interactive reading programs in a local after school program. After three years of suggesting her students chase their dreams, she decided to take her own advice and make a career change.
Allie joined AG&Co in the summer of 2020 and graduated from Endicott College with her Masters in Interior Architecture in the summer of 2021. Allie aims to balance client needs and styles while creating beautiful and functional spaces. Her favorite projects are ones that celebrate simple materials with a range of colors, textures, and uses.
When she’s not pulling together schemes and crafting the ultimate office playlist, Allie spends her time reading or adventuring in nature with her husband, their beautiful baby girl, and their dogs, Tater Tot and Smudge.
Currently Allie is an integral part of the team by managing support for Regan and Amanda, and continuously creating "out of the box" designs for many of our Clients.
Originally a polite midwesterner from Chicago, Victoria has fully embraced the iced-coffee-in-December mentality of the North Shore and is now (still polite) but with a little more edge. Victoria comes from a literary background with a degree in Creative Writing and recently shifted her poetry passion into a spotlight for design and architecture.
After receiving her bachelor’s degree in 2016, Victoria held positions in marketing and operations before returning to school in 2020. She has earned her master’s degree in Interior Architecture at Endicott College and graduated in 2022.
In her spare time, you can find her singing show tunes to her cat or exploring the beach at low tide.
At AG&Co, Victoria's role as Junior Designer has her supporting the lead designers on almost every project on the boards as well as offering further development of the vendors and client relationships within the AG&Co network.
As a child, Genevieve found herself dreaming of ways to improve her childhood home, as her mother's artistic influence surrounded her with textures, bright colors and antiques. She grew up in the Greater Boston area but after living in Arizona, Connecticut and New York City, it was her husband's desire to move back' home' to invest in real estate and try their hand at renovations and flips. After taking 6 years to renovate a beautiful Victorian house into condos, Genevieve's exposure to the North Shore had them yearning and running for the ocean, leading them to historic Salem.
Genevieve found the opportunity to pivot her career in 2021 from marketing and event operations to her passion for interior design.
Beyond the office, she prefers outdoor activities like golf, boating and antiquing with her husband and their dog Obi-Wan.
Genevieve joined AG&Co in 2023 and is the current procurement manager. Her role is positioned to manage some operational design tasks while working closely with vendors and members of the trade, and still being an integral part of the design process
As a Beverly local, Tyler has had a passion for design for as long as he can remember. From a young age, any activity that allowed him to express his creativity was something he would strive for.
Whether it was rearranging and redecorating his room every couple of weeks, curating the best outfits he could think of, or simply just doodling in a notebook, design in all aspects has always been important to him.
Currently, Tyler is senior at Endicott College and is working towards a bachelor’s degree in interior architecture. Upon graduation in Fall 2024, Tyler is planning on also pursuing a master’s degree in business and project management.
When Tyler is not in the office or working on design projects, he is most likely spending time with his family, shopping, or playing with his three dogs - Remington, Toby, and Jules.
As a Vermont native, Austin has been chasing design from a young age. It wasn't until High School that he discovered his true passion for architecture and design. His focus on 3D modeling courses gave him a head start in the design field when he joined the ranks of fellow co-eds at Endicott College in the interior architecture program.
Austin joined the AG&Co design team in the summer of 2022 as an intern and has stayed on to support the team, and contribute his learned mastery on construction drawings, selections and scheduling.
Austin is looking forward to graduating with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Interior Architecture in the spring of 2024, and will then be heading south to pursue warmer weather and design in the Carolina's shortly thereafter with his wife Hannah.
When Austin is not studying or in the office, he enjoys traveling, trying new food, and spending quality time at the beach with his wife.
Daisy joined the AG&Co team in the spring of 2016. Most of her day is spent overseeing daily operations, and naps in the sun. But don’t let her inactivity fool you! Her days can be ruff. She’s constantly roaming the grounds of new projects to ensure no details are missed, and no food is left behind. When she gets overwhelmed, she doesn’t tuck tail and run, she hunkers down into a blanket and sinks her paws into the issue. What she lacks in professional experience and education she makes up for with a can do attitude. With a wagging tail and her toy of choice, she’s always turning visitors into instant friends, and ensures to leave a lasting impression of being the queen bee of the office.
Client Relations Director
Artie joined the AG&Co. team in April 2019. His exuberant nature and cuddly demeanor brings a sense of playfulness to the office. His primary duties within the firm include greeting clients, showing off his new tricks, and "howling" when he approves of the design decisions.
When not in the office, Artie enjoys playing with his neighborhood friends, long walks on the beach, and running through the woods.
He loves rides in the car, so goes everywhere with Amanda. Artie is Amanda's "first mate" on the boat. His love for the water is apparent as he can typically be found frolicking along the seashore scanning for rocks and shells, or mastering the doggie paddle in various lakes, pools and oceans.
Brandi Rae is the life of the party. She joined the team in 2020 and has not stopped moving since. With unlimited excitement for pretty much anything, and anyone, Brandi makes certain we all know when someone is at the door, and then greets them with more enthusiasm than you could imagine.
When it's time for an event, Brandi confirms all the treats and goodies are ready with a full sniff test and often times even tasting the goodies herself.
