Brian is the co-president and the "face of Goulet Pens", and has no shortage of ideas for new videos or marketing initiatives. A natural-born leader, Brian provides the strategic vision for GPC. He was the originator of the "Goulet packing method" and strives to instill that same level of artistry in all of our team members. Brian grew up in Glen Allen, VA with entrepreneurial parents who instilled in him a great sense of independence. He graduated from Virginia Tech in 2006 with a degree in residential property management, then spent a few years working with his dad doing home powerwashing and carpet cleaning.
Rachel is the co-president and the support system behind GPC, with a passion for strategic website design, process management, accounting, and general operational strategy. She is originally from Centreville, VA, and graduated from Virginia Tech in 2006 with a degree in business management. Before starting GPC, she spent a few years working as a Federal recruiter, and a few years doing Excel programming and process engineering at a Fortune 500 company. She loves to geek out over a robust Excel spreadsheet complete with color-coding, just like she enjoys matching inks to her broad-nibbed pens.
Brian and Rachel first met in late 2001 as high school sweethearts, and have been married since 2006. Brian and Rachel have two children - Joseph and Ellie.
