MEET MOLLY FRIER
Molly founded Key & Commons (formerly MLP Hospitality) in 2011 to bring quality products and services to interior designers for California's high-end hospitality and residential industries. She has consulted on a variety of upscale projects including the Balboa Bay Club, Paséa Hotel & Spa, Planet Hollywood Las Vegas Resort & Casino, and Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort.
Having worked on both the creative and sales sides of the industry for more than a decade, Molly is an expert at multi-line sales and sales management. She brings passion and a fresh, informed set of eyes to every project — and she has a knack for prioritizing, problem-solving, and completing projects within budget and on time.
Prior to starting Key & Commons, Molly worked with hotels, developers and architectural interior design communities across the United States, including Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, Fairmont Hotels, and Kimpton Hotels. Her ability to cultivate lasting relationships has enabled her to build a robust network of respected contacts. When a design opportunity or problem arises, she knows exactly who to call.
Molly earned her Bachelor's Degree of Interior Design from Kansas State University. She also studied at the Intercontinental University in London where she worked at Hirsch Bedner Associates, HBA London, and later, HBA Santa Monica. In 2013, Molly joined the Board of Directors for Networking Executive Women in Hospitality (NEWH), Los Angeles, Founding Chapter, where she served as Director of Programming and Vice President of Development.
Molly is based in Los Angeles. When she's not working, you can find her traveling and exploring architectural gems all over the world for inspiration. Her favorite destination so far? Berlin!
