Mike Lovett
Marketing Specialist

If you hate the idea of a dynamic workplace, a vibrant company culture, and fun, you'll hate The Grommet, but I digress. I wanted to work at The Grommet because it seemed like an opportunity where I would enjoy the work I did and meet people I would thoroughly enjoy working with. I was right. It's been a personal and professional jackpot.

I really care about The Grommet’s mission to put an end to faceless business and highlight the people behind the products. I love what I do. Every day I get to be creative and work with things I like the most: colors, layouts, typography, and beautiful imagery taken by our in-house photography team.
