dear glassybaby community,
seventeen years ago i began to sell glassybaby out of my garage. in 2003 we built our first hotshop in green lake. today we have 80 glassblowers, 7 stores and the White Light Fund that provides support to many causes that heal communities and families. and, we have very ambitious growth plans for this coming year and beyond.
for me this has been an amazing experience that has given me both enormous challenge and deep joy. i am looking forward to the continued growth of glassybaby and am committed to continuing to guide our brand and our values.
i am also delighted to be able to announce that last week i offered my brother Bill Cummings the opportunity to become the Chief Executive Officer of glassybaby. he has the proven experience of leadership, strategic planning and management that glassybaby now needs. he also shares the core values of glassybaby: integrity, community, quality, and purpose.
i am thrilled that Bill has enthusiastically accepted my offer. i trust him completely and am delighted that he will immediately assume full management oversight of glassybaby.
we so look forward to continuing our very unique and successful journey with you.
