Founder & Co-Founder
Brandon & Celestee
Students of St Joseph’s Convent & St. Mary’s College, Celestee & Brandon would be dropped off every morning by their parents on Pembroke Street, Port of Spain to pursue their secondary school education. It would be the two schools located on this street that would come to define them both. Here they were molded into adults with both a passion for business and the willingness to help improve the lives of the people around them.
Between them, they have years of experience from working in various fields; from Banking and Finance, Marketing, Business Consulting, E-commerce, etc. Having identified the issues their parents faced when trying to find school supplies they decided to use their combined expertise to create a product that would ease parents’ burden and make back to school shopping an enjoyable experience.
Our Parents & Grandparents
The unending drive and determination we’ve witnessed from our parents, who were tasked with the thankless job of raising 5 children on a limited budget provided all the inspiration we require to continue to strive to ensure this business thrives.
Both groups, starting from humble beginnings in South Trinidad, have struggled to make ends meet throughout the course of their lives yet somehow continually managed, despite all hardships that were faced, to make sure their children (and even neighbours’ children in some cases) had what they need in life, especially when it came to pursuing an education.
The never say die attitude, generosity and kindness of our fore-bearers is what has and will continue to define the personality of Pembroke & Iere. These qualities have been woven into the very fabric of Pembroke & Iere’s company culture, their influence throughout business operations is unmistakable.
