One of the most rewarding aspects of working for a company like Kalalou is the friendships that are built while collaborating with others. A company our size can often feel like a family, with each member doing their part as we work together to acheive a common goal. So, we thought it'd be nice to give you a "behind-the-scenes" look at Kalalou and introduce a few of our team members that help make all of this possible. We hope you'll enjoy getting to know us a little better!
Meghan Newman is one of our full time Regional Sales Managers. She is dedicated to working closely with customers, over the phone and at market, in order to find the right products that'll help take your business to the next level. We did a quick Q&A with Meghan and got to know a little more about her family life outside of Kalalou.

Favorite Kalalou Product: One of our signature items, our glass cylinders, they truly are a stand alone product with so many styling possibilities. It's a beautiful piece and it was the the very first item I purchased when I started working at Kalalou almost 5 years ago!
