Nate Ransom, CEO
Traveling is one of Nate’s greatest passions, beyond his family and cookies, of course. He has traveled to every continent in the world, except Antarctica; but with the inaccessibility and inclement weather who can blame him? Nate attended Boston University and graduated Cum Laude with a double major in Finance and Accounting. Nate had an entrepreneurial drive right out of college and envisioned himself starting an advertising firm focused on digital media. He gained advertising experience representing Yamaha Motor Corporation, out of Pennsylvania, where he maintained an advertising budget for the East coast.
After working in advertising for a year, Nate realized his entrepreneurial ambitions were not being fulfilled. He was excited to hear his long-time friend, Adam, was interested in expanding his start up cookie company and Nate set out for California. With the young company’s talent and ambition, Nate foresees big things for The Cravory, and judges in the next 10 years the company will be nationwide, with stores in every major U.S. city.
