A Message from Our President

Dear Friends of Whitestone,


This week marks the ten year anniversary of Whitestone’s inception. To celebrate this milestone, I wanted to share a note with all our clients, vendors and friends of the company to express how truly grateful I am for all the business and support we’ve had from you along the way.

Starting this business was the best decision of my life, and that’s in large part because of the people I’ve had the chance to work alongside and the customers we’ve had the pleasure and opportunity to produce products for.

If you would have asked me back then, where would I see the company today, I know for certain that I wouldn’t have envisioned a fully remote, self-sustaining company with forty plus full time employees, directors for every department, seventeen sales professionals, five graphic designers, three team members in finance and an entire company of star studded individuals who all bring a unique voice and personality to the company. I am beyond grateful for all the people who work for the company today and those who have been a part of this journey along the way.

Being an employer is a responsibility I do not take lightly and is how I measure my success as a business owner. Creating a company people not only want to work for, but build a career with, has now become my life’s work. As we set our sights on what the next ten years will look like, my new goals now are to build the best place to work within our industry and to build a company that’s culture and workplace is recognized as one of the best places to work in the country, period.

This business is fun! We can make almost anything. And because we make products, we get the chance to work with so many awesome people and businesses all throughout the country. We help produce products that not only ignite their brands and image but also allow them to show appreciation to their customers or staff. I find it rewarding to be a part of and really cannot thank each and every customer enough for allowing us to be their brand partner, and supporting us through the opportunities you share with Whitestone.

We wouldn’t be able to do this without the incredible support from our supplier and manufacturing partners. If it weren’t for them, we wouldn’t be in business today and without them, we couldn’t service the amazing customers we work with day in and day out. Thank you for believing in us and for going above and beyond to help make us look good!

From the bottom of my heart, thank you all so much for the support. I truly believe the best is yet to come.
