We are excited to announce that we are now working with The Grommet. You can see our page here: https://www.thegrommet.com/brooklyn-butcher-blocks Being featured on the Grommet is more than just another e-commerce platform to us, but it is like a badge we wear with pride. They only select makers who have demonstrated innovation, hard work seen in their blood, sweat and tears, and that they have strong values.
The founders, Jules Pieri and Joanne Domeniconi, have done quite a bit, even before The Grommet (which is actually the 3rd start-up Jules has been a part of). Jules started as an industrial designer, but after seeing the enormous impact consumer products have on our economy and society, she became an executive at Keds and Hasbro. She was rightfully named one of Fortune's Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs in 2013 and 2014. Joanne has a rich background in creating and launching consumer products. She spent over 20 years at Stride Rite as the Vice President of Product Development. She turned the company around, boasting 11 straight quarters of increased sales and profitability.
But what brought them to start the Grommet is clear: focus, morality, and drive. We are so happy to get to start working with the Grommet, and look forward to having our relationship grow.
