Board of Directors

Phil Grandinetti, III

Phil Grandinetti was also appointed to the board of directors by affirmative vote on November 5, 2020. Mr. Grandinetti co-founded WITHit after eight years as VP of Sales at LightWedge—a global e-book, e reader and tablet accessories brand. All told, Grandinetti has spent the last 18 years in a leadership role for consumer products companies, including serving as Sr. VP of Sales for GSM Products in Oceanside, CA. As co-founder of WITHit, he was instrumental in launching the company’s line of Wearable Tech Accessories in 2014. WITHit products are sold through the largest and most influential retailers in the US with retail partners including Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Sam’s Club, QVC, HSN, Kohl’s, and Barnes & Noble. Mr. Grandinetti joined GSM Products as the U.S. Director of Sales and was quickly promoted to VP of Worldwide Sales, leading the company into Canada, Mexico, U.K., and the Pacific Rim. Within a year, he was promoted again to Sr. VP Worldwide Sales. During his tenure at GSM, the company realized unprecedented growth under Grandinetti’s guidance. Mr. Grandinetti has a J.D. from the University of San Diego School of Law and is licensed in the State of California, as well as a B.A. from the University of Iowa in Economics and Political Science. We believe that Mr. Grandinetti is qualified to serve as a member of our board of directors because of his experience with retail sales and and marketing and the development and commercialization of new products.
