Moderator:  Stacey Tiveron , Founder Ronati.com

Bold, dynamic, and passionate are just a few of the words used to describe moderator Stacey Tiveron. Stacey has spent more than two decades serving interior designers, brands and industry groups by developing and providing online initiatives and solutions to remove friction and connect buyers and sellers in an ever-changing industry.  The Founder and CEO of Ronati, named for the word "Rona," which means "my joy," Ronati is focused on building technological solutions to help the one-of-a-kind industry grow and thrive. Its first product, the eCommerce Manager, is currently being beta tested by leading vintage and antique dealers in Los Angeles, New York, and London. Fashioned after social media manager tools such as HootSuite and Buffer, Ronati’s eCommerce Manager eliminates the time users spend when entering their listings, one by one, to multiple marketplaces. Previously, Stacey founded the Trade Only Design Library (TODL) in 1997, to assist designers in the sourcing of products from a myriad of manufacturers. Launched online in 2000, Stacey and her team diligently built TODL into the industry's largest online product research and specification database exclusively for professional designers. TODL provided more than 55,000 professional designers with access to more than 300,000 products from 1,000 manufacturers ranging from large multinational corporations to small artisanal brands. TODL also created innovative trend, marketing, and collaborative content with leading trade shows and industry publications. Stacey steered TODL in service to the industry from 2000 - 2015, when new owners took the helm rebranding TODL as Steelyard. After her departure in 2016, Stacey’s new adventure with Ronati began.
