059: Lou Ann & the Gelli Plate

 

I’m delighted to bring you another episode of the Adventures in Arting Podcast!  Today’s podcast features Lou Ann Gleason:

from the Balzer Designs Blog: Adventures in Arting Podcast
Lou Ann is CEO and co-founder of a growing company, Gelli Arts LLC.  Gelli manufactures a unique gel printing plate that is used by teachers and artists.  Gelli started with her partner’s great idea.  Clever manufacturing, savvy marketing and lots of getting the little things right have turned that idea into a brand with an expanding customer base around the world.

from the Balzer Designs Blog: Adventures in Arting Podcast
Lou Ann was born and raised in Michigan, one of 10 children in her family.  She worked at a department store to help pay tuition at her all-girls high school, and then put herself through college. She graduated from Michigan State.  After college, she worked first for a department store, making decisions about which women’s clothes to stock, then for a bank.  Eventually, she went to get her MBA at University of Michigan.

from the Balzer Designs Blog: Adventures in Arting Podcast
The MBA degree opened up new opportunities. Lou Ann worked at Procter & Gamble.  There she worked in brand marketing, making decisions about product development and advertising on household brands such as Cascade, Dawn and Joy.  She was also lucky to spend a few years developing new products—which became a big asset at Gelli Arts.

from the Balzer Designs Blog: Adventures in Arting Podcast
Lou Ann stayed at P&G for 15 years.  Later she served as chief marketing officer for a vacation real-estate firm, then started her own consulting business. Today she divides here time between the consulting business and Gelli Arts.

from the Balzer Designs Blog: Adventures in Arting Podcast
Lou Ann met her husband at P&G.  They have two children, one son in college in California (who has already started his own business) and a daughter who is serving in the Peace Corp in Ukraine.
