With Joy, Meet Chantel

Dec 18, 2020 – by Dawn

Change is the only constant, and it is with great joy and open arms that we welcome a monumental change here at Firebelly.

Meet Chantel Valentene: an empathic collaborator and soulful self-starter, fearless seeker and passionate leader — and Firebelly’s new Managing Director.

Inspiring future female leaders through G.E.M, a program she connected with through her collaboration with color positive.

Before we began our search, many questions loomed large. 

Who would want to take the reins of a 22 year founder-led company? Who could take on a role that is equal parts left and right brain, and requires both design and business acumen? Who might be the right leader for who we are today and who we want to be tomorrow?

We were curious, and we were hopeful: with any change comes the opportunity for growth.

“In this unique time, we have an opportunity to use creativity as a catalyst for good, while helping clients deepen their relationships with their audience.”

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to contribute my experience and join the dynamic, purpose-driven team at Firebelly.”

— Chantel Valentene, New Managing Director

We believe in the future of Firebelly, and all the more so with Chantel leading the charge. The world has been in a dark place, and we have faith in her bright spirit and deep compassion to light the way as we continue to do good design for good reason.

We can’t wait for you to meet her. Learn all about her and see why we love her already. And if you’re wondering about Dawn, she’s not disappearing.

Hey Big Shoes, say hello to Chantel. We think you’ll find she fits you well.
