Robert Ginyard, Vice Chairman
Three years ago Robert Ginyard’s major battle was raising capital and reviving his tote bag business by re-launching his signature product the Shusokumb (pronounced Shu- Sock’em) Bag, a compartmentalized tote bag designed for the millions of women who wear flat shoes or sneakers to work and later change into heels once they arrive to the office. He never imagined that a year later he would be battling prostate cancer.
Suddenly, the goal of achieving entrepreneurial success with his Shusokumb Bag was not as important as overcoming prostate cancer. A former banker and marketing director, Robert has now taken on a new role in speaking out to promote prostate cancer awareness and overall good health. Robert also started DiBi Dibi, Dream it, Believe it, Do it, Be it. Robert currently serves as ZERO’s Vice Chairman. Read more about Robert here.
