Ren Greenwald — GloveUp LLC, Founder
Beyond my life-long pursuit of entrepreneurial adventures and caring for my family, I have always been inspired by nature, philanthropy, creativity, and fashion. GloveUp is a heart-felt mission for me where all of my passions run together. I believe that in the most difficult of times, and all the other times too, we must strive to do our best to help others. GloveUp is my contribution to helping others who, like myself, feel best when “gloved up” in a safe and special way. I feel blessed to have a highly talented team of women from around the world who make GloveUp what it is today. Our team is dedicated to our humanitarian mission and shares my passion for helping others. Our collective purpose is to help others directly through our small batch, handmade signature collection, as well as through our corporate and protective line of gloves. We will also always strive to make the world a better place through the philanthropic activities of the GloveUp World Foundation.
Sabrina Dunn — Senior Brand Advisor
When Ren called me to tell me about her inspiring idea of protecting people while caring for others, I immediately jumped onboard the GloveUp boat. After graduating as a Gemologist in California, then a successful career in the luxury industry between Paris, London and Rome specializing in high-end jewelry for the likes of Cartier & Bulgari, I now channel my creativity and branding knowledge to help others. Advising jewelers and brands on product development, branding and strategies with a pure and meaningful intent are the only ways I desire to steer my passions. I like to give a sense and purpose to products of the so-called ‘luxury’ world, which otherwise would be too often a status symbol. Accessories or brands meant solely for adornment or revenues do not interest me. So, when GloveUp decided to come up with an accessory with the purpose of giving confidence and protection to the wearer, whilst creating funds for charities, it was a pleasure to share my insight and creative mind.

hile our GloveUp team and collaborators make our product line safe for our customers to go about their lives with confidence, my personal hope is to contribute to making our glove line stylish and special.
