Q&A with Jane Boatman Geller and Greg Geller

Layla Grayce: What is your name, title, and how long have you been with Boatman Geller?
Jane Boatman Geller: 
I’m Jane Boatman Geller, founder, owner and designer of Boatman Geller. I started the company in the fall of 2001.
Greg Geller: 
I’m Greg Geller, President of The Boatman Group.

LG: When and why did you decide to showcase your brand on Layla Grayce?
Greg: Layla Grayce came to us requesting the brand in 2004.

LG: How has your brand and its style/offerings changed over the years?
Jane: We have diversified our products lines a lot. We have expanded from paper to personalized home, desk, and gift products. The look of our design has shifted over the years, but at its core, it remains a classic plus preppy combo.

LG:  Where do you see your brand 10 years from now?
Jane: The fun part of having a look that is slightly trendy, yet always classic, is that it designs itself in a lot of ways. I think our look in 10 years will be similar to what we have now, just fresher (of course!). The biggest changes will likely be on the production side of things as more and more surfaces are available to personalize. I hope to explore soft goods (like pillows!) in the near future!

LG: What is your favorite memory working with Layla Grayce over the past 10 years?
Jane: My favorite memory is reaching out and talking to Wendy on her cell phone in Atlanta and getting a better understanding of the business, how it was started (GREAT story of two Southern California girls!), and how the other sites work together. Then, I found out we were going to be at the Atlanta Gift Mart.
Greg: Meeting Wendy and her team at the show in January of 2010 and the business partnership that has evolved from there is my favorite memory.
