McCormack joined TPG in 2013 and has dedicated the past ten years to promoting design excellence through her work. As Creative Director and Senior Associate, McCormack had worked with a number of clients across various disciplines––including Condé Nast Entertainment, Macmillan, and most recently, the relocation project for Lexington Partners in Midtown Manhattan. Additionally, she leads TPG’s wellness and sustainable initiatives. McCormack has a growing list of over 25 LEED-certified projects, such as Associated Press, Moët Hennessy, The National Hockey League and numerous Interpublic Group offices.
A registered architect by trade, Samantha appreciates the fast-paced world of being a designer and developing lasting client relationships. Samantha is an integral leader in all pre-design decisions, and views planning and real estate strategy to be the foundation for any successful project.
“Throughout my career, I have focused on creating transformational and sustainable workplaces across all of TPG’s workplace studios. Designing spaces that empower people to be their whole selves at work, balanced with the comfort of an enriched workplace environment, while still having fun doing it, enables all to have a better experience,” says McCormack. “I see this next step as an exciting opportunity and look forward to increasing my voice and visibility in the partnership.”

Since joining TPG in 2015, Rabuffo’s portfolio includes projects for Interpublic Group, BSE Global, Various Social Media Clients, and JPMorgan Chase & Co.
Alexandria (aka Lexi) is a mission-focused leader throughout the entire life cycle of the project. Her thoughtful, hands-on approach to planning and process improvement is invaluable. Lexi creates synergies that generate impactful solutions and overall client satisfaction.
“Coming from a foundation in hands-on design and construction, I believe that every facet of a project team brings value; it is our combination of knowledge and vision that allows us to bring truly great ideas into a reality,” says Rabuffo. “In my time with TPG Architecture, I’ve found myself amongst an incredible group of professionals and mentors that always strive to push the creative vision into existence. I’m honored to be joining such a strong, diverse partnership and I look forward to shaping my voice within our culture.”
