CORPORATE GIFTING BECOMES A BIT MORE STYLISH WITH RECENT BIRDIEBOX ACQUISITION
BirdieBox, luxury gifting leader, acquires ZipFit Denim
October 22, 2019
BirdieBox, LLC – a leading provider of luxury gifts and corporate gifting services throughout sports & entertainment, golf and corporate America, today announced that they have acquired the gifting sector of ZipFit Denim, a company specializing in curating and providing custom fitted, designer jeans, to enhance its already robust gifting experience line.
The acquisition of the successful, 8-year-old, Chicago-Based, ZipFit Denim, increases BirdieBox’s market share in the corporate gifting space, as well as the offerings it can provide its current customer base. “This was a no-brainer. What Liz and team have created at ZipFit, is, no pun intended, a perfect fit for the experiences that we are already curating and providing for our clientele,” stated Pat DePirro, CEO of BirdieBox.
“We are offering something never previously available to corporations,” Michael Myers, CSO of BirdieBox, added, “and as the only organization to provide a truly one-stop-shop, white glove, luxury gifting experience, we believe it is incumbent upon us to continue to add to our portfolio of products, both physical and experiential. Our clients deserve that, and ZipFit’s acquisition has allowed us to move one step further in that direction.”
BirdieBox will work with ZipFit to maintain existing infrastructure, and will add to their current offering such brands as Paige, Citizens of Humanity, Hudson, Joe’s, Mavi, DL 1961 and Fidelity. Myers added that BirdieBox has no current plans to work with individual customer orders or to provide direct sales events.
The acquisition of ZipFit was emboldened by the organizations’ similar values, according to DePirro. “As fellow entrepreneurs, we have the utmost respect for what Liz, Katie and their team have created. Very few have worked harder or more diligently. To have the opportunity to secure their legacy and move it forward alongside BirdieBox’s, will be one of the great pleasures of our tenure.”
