THE BIRDIE BOX STORY
After a storied career on Wall Street, Keith Bolognese moved to Scottsdale, AZ and founded BirdieBox in late 2013, born from a love of golf and lifestyle. Our first tagline was Golf. Life. Style. In April, 2014, Keith called upon his childhood friend, Pat DePirro to run the company since there was trust, friendship and mutual respect between the two New Yorkers.
In Q4 of 2016, DePirro made the difficult decision to sunset BirdieBox successful monthly golf subscription service to solely focus on corporate gifting, changing the business model, branding and tagline. Pat drew upon his experience as a corporate sales leader for MLB, Viacom and Bloomberg, regularly entertaining clients at sporting events, golf trips and other marquis events. Part of creating these memorable experiences, DePirro often provided thoughtful and personalized gifts regardless of the time, energy and coordination required to source, package and customize them for each client.
