Prior to joining Rainier, Lambarena was a sales plan and steer manager at IKEA. She traveled the world to attend and facilitate trainings related to every aspect of the business, from selling and marketing to products to leadership.
Lambarena is tasked with growing Rainier’s Display Business Unit, one of four distinct businesses within the company. After getting its start in the tent and awning business, Rainier expanded into the graphics and signage business in 1994 with the acquisition of Olympic Sign. The display division specializes in custom display solutions including wallcoverings, framed artwork, banners, vehicle wraps, wayfinding signage and large scale environmental branding. The work marries a unique blend of fabrication capabilities, including print, fabric, metal, wood, and 3-D freeform tube bending, including architectural sculptures called Rainier Clouds.
