Sayed Saber - CBO

Other than having the coolest name around and being the star of our Kickstarter launch video, Sayed Saber is a business development wiz with loads of brand management experience.

Risks and challenges

Some of the biggest challenges with a project like this are making sure our Tubbies are hand blown and of the highest quality glass, and also making sure manufacturing and shipping stay on schedule.

It was really important to us to stay away from giant, machine-operated factories. We made the decision to work closely with small, family-owned manufacturing studios to make sure Tubbies are hand blown and of the highest quality. Does that mean there may be a slight imperfection in the glass? Absolutely. Does it also mean you'll sleep better at night knowing it's a hand made piece of high quality, heat treated glassware? Oh yes.

In terms of the operational side of things, my brother-in-law Craig is one of the best things about the Tubby Team. In addition to being a real stand up dude, he has been in the glassware manufacturing business for years. When he signed on board to be the COO of Tubby, LLC, he looked me in the eye and said, "Sam, you will never have to worry about missing a deadline." Normally I would take a comment like that with a grain of salt, however, Craig has amazing experience and has been wildly successful in his previous projects. Craig is the glue that is holding down all operations and already has the manufacturing, packaging, and shipping lined up and ready to go!
