Rush Jenkins - CEO, Co-Founder of WRJ

Rush Jenkins

CEO, Co-Founder of WRJ

Rush Jenkins has worked in the design industry for over 30 years, but his design aesthetic was formed much earlier. Growing up in Idaho, Rush’s palette was informed by the natural environment of the nearby Teton Mountain Range and the rolling acreage of his family’s farmland. After obtaining his undergraduate degree in Landscape Architecture from Cal Poly, Rush set his aesthetic sights across the Atlantic, where he refined his design expertise through his studies at the Sotheby’s Institute of Art in London. Rush’s association with Sotheby’s continued when he became the Director of Design for their New York auction house. There, he had the privilege of leading the design for exhibitions for the collections of many American luminaries.

Following his dual passions for Interior Design and the American West, Rush moved to Jackson Hole, Wyoming where he and his partner, Klaus Baer, established the headquarters of WRJ Design. Rush leads the vision for WRJ’s talented team of designers who have a combined expertise in design conceptualization, technical planning and creative execution of projects for their clients.

Today, Rush’s knowledge of interiors, art, architecture and landscape architecture is applied to designing beautiful retreats, where people find comfort in harmonious surroundings.
