Bringing the Truth to Light…

Peter Cox, Director of Product Development at Quoizel, is spreading the news…however, it’s not about the most recent lighting design or a new line being introduced, rather it’s about his father, Robert J. Cox.  Mr. Cox accompanied by his wife Maud, was recently honored at a state dinner in Argentina with President Obama and the President of Argentina, Mauricio Macri.

President Obama’s trip coincides with the 40th anniversary of the military coup in Argentina, a seven-year long wave of political oppression from 1976-1982 that claimed thousands of lives.  During this time Mr. Cox was the Editor and President of the Buenos Aires Herald covering and reporting the atrocities committed by the military government during the so called “Dirty War” providing the families of those victimized with a necessary outlet.

Back to School Cool…!!

Although a very different story than Rodney Dangerfield’s shenanigans in Back to School, Quoizel’s President & CEO, Rick Seidman, heads to Clemson to further his education!

Rick’s story can be found on Clemson’s MBA website where he is quoted as saying “My MBA experience at Clemson has been a life- changing event.”  He continues to say “My high school and undergraduate college experiences were driven by my desire to achieve high grades to first get into college and then to get a good job with a top firm.  In stark contrast, my reason for going for an MBA was to gain knowledge.”  And gain knowledge he has!  He has also shared and implemented many of the concepts he has learned with his teams at Quoizel.

Throwback Thursday ~ Congratulations on Bobbie’s 40th Anniversary at Quoizel

Wishing Bobbie Pearsall, Director of Advertising, a Happy 40 Years with Quoizel is a perfect TBT.

Bobbie, who graduated with a B.A. in English from the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, started working for Quoizel two years after graduation. Starting in the Advertising Department, Bobbie worked her way up through the ranks to head this very busy and integral part of Quoizel.

“I remember before you were married, before you had children, before you had grandchildren.  It’s amazing all the time we have spent together.  A lot of good times, a lot of work.” ~ Ira Phillips, Chairman of the Board Quoizel

Quoizel’s Proud Partnership with Habitat For Humanity

Quoizel’s belief that everyone should have a healthy, affordable place to call home continues with its commitment to Habitat for Humanity. It’s more than building homes.  Habitat builds communities, they build hope and they build the opportunity for families to help themselves.

This year Quoizel raised funds selling raffles and refreshments during its April Warehouse Sale, as well as a Facebook campaign where they donated money for every new “Like”.  Many of Quoizel’s employees have taken time out of their busy schedules to work with Habitat for Humanity chapters in both New York and South Carolina, but Quoizel’s commitment doesn’t stop there…
