About The Guest
Monique Filer and Dannielle Michaels started b.box with an idea and a whole lot of chutzpah. Fast forward 10 years and they have turned their clever concept into a global brand with customers in over 40 countries and a loyal fanbase of parents and kids all over the world. With no prior baby industry experience – other than being mums themselves – they combined their finance, risk management, business development and marketing expertise to create a business and brand known for its innovation, quality and creativity in product design. The duo continues to drive the strategy, passion and innovation behind the brand and challenge the team to think big to deliver new game changing products for our fans around the world. b.box currently boasts over 25 products, is distributed in approx. 2000 stores in Australia and in 40 countries, with more on the way.
As director and co-owner, Dannielle is responsible for the strategic vision and growth plans for the company. She is also responsible for branding and design, marketing, product development and for our business development strategy in Australia and around the world. Dannielle’s background in strategic communications, PR and advertising, as well as being a mum to three girls, gives her an innate sense of how to communicate to our target market.
