Echo New York (originally Echo Design) is a family-run company founded in New York City in 1923 by two ambitious, hard working, young entrepreneurs who also happened to be husband and wife. Today, their great-grandchildren are still in charge of and growing the company with great commitment to the values of quality and creativity. Making people's lives meaningful through its products is Echo's vision.
In this episode, Charlie Roberts, one of the founders' great-grandchildren, discusses a painting by American folk artist Kathy Jacobsen. The picture belonged to his late grandmother, Dot, who was Echo's CEO for many years and long before the age of #girlboss.
