about us

We thought you might like to know a little bit more about WHO we are.

Grainne - CEO BubbleBum UK Ltd / BubbleBum USA LLC

Grainne – CEO BubbleBum UK Ltd / BubbleBum USA LLC grainne@bubblebum.co

My name is Grainne Kelly and I am the founder of BubbleBum. The BubbleBum Car Booster seat was born out of frustration and concern for my own children’s safety when travelling abroad. My children and their friends have been involved in every part of the journey to date and I still look to them for inspiration and ideas. My passion for my kids is what drives me and I want to show them that they can achieve anything for the right reasons. There is no greater reward than to see your children proud of what you are trying to achieve. 

At BubbleBum we feel it is important that we are clear in how we behave and treat each other. We promise to keep these values in our daily lives, not just in the office. They are fundamental to the decisions we make and WHO we are. As a mum, these are things that are also important to our kids. Our vision is to create a global brand of products which are cool, functional and innovative travel solutions for families Some of the values that define us are :

 

  • We will always act with integrity and honesty.
  • We will always act in the best interest of the company but never to the detriment of the safety of children.
  • We will speak as if others are listening and write only what we would like others to read.
  • We want our team to dream big and be part of the dream.
  • We will be consciously positive in our speech and all communication at all times.
  • Always take the business seriously, never take ourselves too seriously
  • We will choose to have a great day!

I would like to introduce our team. These people are the sun in the sky : )

Fintan Kelly - Operations Director BubbleBum UK Ltd / Vice President BubbleBum USA LLC

Fintan – Operations Director BubbleBum UK Ltd / Vice President BubbleBum USA LLC fintan@bubblebum.co

So I am the only man on the team at the moment (with the exception of Scoobs) and its quite interesting to work with such a great bunch of ladies….the fascinating thing is that they all agree I am the best cook so maybe that’s why they keep me!!

Apart from cooking I love to run – just for fun and fresh air. I have completed a marathon and surprisingly finished on the same calendar day which was a great achievement seeing as I didn’t actually start running until I was in my 40’s!! In fact I love all sports from rugby to football to swimming to squash to basketball and so on.

My bucket lists includes 10 places I really want to see….one of which is Petra in Jordon which I find amazing; another thing on my list is to do a bungee jump or a sky dive – the thought of which turns my legs to jelly. To date I have only completed three of the 20 things on my list however slowly does it as an old teacher used to say to me

Melissa - Vice President of Sales BubbleBum USA LLC

Melissa – Vice President of Sales BubbleBum USA LLC melissa@bubblebum.co

Melissa’s start with BubbleBum came when she and Grainne met at the neighborhood swimming pool in Windermere, FL. – they are both avid swimmers and could have been mistaken for a couple of mermaids and that afternoon they planned and performed a synchronized swimming routine to the Muppets theme song that rivalled the Olympic medallists; it was only destiny then that the two would start talking about BubbleBum!! Melissa has many years of experience in sales and marketing, specifically, with launching new products into the US marketplace. After a 10 year, stay-at-home Mom hiatus where she chaired several charity events and volunteered at many community organizations, she jumped back into the fun with BubbleBum to help launch it into the US and there is never a dull moment
