Just out today in the Boulder County Business Report – local company Clementine Art (spin off of Clementine Studios) has used recently raised funds to hire three top notch executives to launch and market its new line of children’s art supplies.
The BCBR article states “John Maggio, co-founder of Boulder Chips, is chief executive. Gordon Cooper, former vice president of sales at Larabar, is vice president of sales and marketing. Katherine Gregory, previously with Williams Sonoma, is director of supply chain operations.”
This is really exciting! Clementine Studios founder Diana Mercer used to teach art at the Friends School in Boulder, where both of my kids went to pre-school too many years ago! She launched her own business and obviously has done a great job bringing quality art education for kids to the Boulder community. Her new line of art supplies already includes organic play-dough, and will soon include a whole new line of all-natural and environmentally friendly products like paints, glues, brushes, etc… Their line will be sold in kits and sold in Whole Foods this summer!
Even more exciting is that at the Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, California., in March, Mercer was approached by the CBS Morning Show, Target, Wal-Mart and Amazon.com about their new product line. At Colorado Landmark, Realtors we LOVE to see local companies shine and Clementine Arts is sure to do just that.
