Consider this: A business run by a team of family members is more resilient and more likely to succeed than any other kind of company. Not as likely. More likely. We like to believe we’re a living example of that adage.
ECHOtape was started by Stanley Edelstein, and it’s now managed by a second generation of Edelsteins. BUT what really makes ECHOtape a family business are the other families within. Like Darren and Kevin Quesnel, and Mike and Stephen Grevatt. [Read about them here!]
And this summer, we added a third generation to the mix!
Jimmy Berghello worked for ECHOtape for 10 years before retiring. In fact, this 76-year-old still comes back to work special projects and odd jobs just because he loves working and he loves the business.
This summer, Jimmy encouraged his grandson, Preston — who also happens to be Darren Quesnel’s nephew — to apply. Preston is just a student right now, but this summer he got to work alongside his grandfather on a relabeling job!
“Preston used to come to our holiday parties as a baby!” says Cherie Edelstein. ” Although he doesn’t remember it, there are pictures on our wall! Grandfather, son-in-law and grandson. We really are a family-oriented company. “
