Co-Founder & CEO
Before devoting her work to helping small businesses and communities sell online together, Cherie was a small business owner herself, selling her products both locally and via online outlets. It was that experience that led Cherie to find a better way to help small businesses leverage their shared connection and help customers discover and buy from local businesses easier through a single customer experience.
Cherie has her Masters and Bachelors from the University of Northern Iowa, and fun fact, is one of twelve children in her family.

Co-Founder & CTO
Robert had an epiphany one day after talking to Cherie about a recent local craft show they attended. With such low attendance due to weather, there had to be a better way for people to support and buy products from local vendors. He got to work on the first prototype soon after and the first of many local marketplaces was born. Robert manages Member Marketplace’s network of e-commerce marketplace websites that are making a positive impact to communities and helping local residents shop local, online.
