The Team Behind Kelby & Co.
Sim was introduced to the garment industry as a child and it has been a lifelong passion for him ever since. He's produced apparel for retailers all over the world for over 10 years. Understanding that customers wanted more from their garments, he started experimenting with innovative textiles and discovered water and stain repellent fabrics (hydrophobic). Outside of the office, he can be found playing basketball, traveling and playing fetch with his puppy, Oni in Central Park. Sim once got coffee spilled on him by David Bowie, which was a thrill, but also a bit awkward.
Brad is a non-stop innovator with a passion for building businesses that offer new solutions. He began his career in corporate consulting, but found his strength and home not so long afterwards in the startup industry. His career spans marketing, project management, and strategy consulting. He co-founded Petstablished, a provider of management software to animal welfare organizations. He's an avid traveler with an adventurous nature. His worst fear is staining his lucky (white) New York Giants jersey.
