Julie is the Founder and President of Ecologic Brands. Julie is the mastermind behind Ecologic’s paper eco.bottle® – a testament to her insatiable curiosity and ability to “think outside the bottle”. The eco.bottle® is sold in over 10 countries and its customers include L’Oréal and Unilever. She approaches challenges with fierce optimism and tenacity and isn’t afraid to turn the packaging industry upside down. Julie’s passion is bolstered by her 16 years of marketing and investment experience. Prior to founding Ecologic, she was a Partner at Jurika & Voyles, Inc., where she led the firm’s institutional service and marketing efforts that contributed to asset growth of more than $5 billion before it was sold in 1997. Previously, Julie worked for RBC Dominion Securities and the Royal Bank of Canada as well as BBDO Worldwide in Prague, Czech Republic.
Julie holds a B.A. in Economics from McGill University in Canada and was once a professional gymnast-in-training (a helpful background in an entrepreneurial world that often requires one to jump through hoops). Julie is devoted to her two active girls and served for 3 years and as Girl Scout. When not hunched over new bottle prototypes, she is an avid skier and an ardent friend of the earth.
