Our team

Our team

When you work with the best, you create the best.

From the beginning, we knew we wanted to assemble a diverse team of experts and leaders not content with the status quo. We searched for people with a pioneering spirit and essential achievements in their respective fields looking for something new, something profound, something dynamic.

We definitely found not just who we were looking for, but each other. We understand and embrace our business model, can pivot with market changes and have what it takes to bring our products to consumers.

Now, we’re building upon a collective vision to cultivate that foundation, expand our capabilities and grow the company’s reach, potential and impact.

This is the team that’s guiding that process.
