The ZOMM Family—How Running Our Business is a Family Affair

Most families spend their evenings together gathered around the dining room table or television set, eating, talking and laughing. Conversations are usually light—“How was your day, honey?” or “What did you learn at school today, kids?”…

You won’t usually hear conversations about Bluetooth technology, a trip to the Consumer Electronics Showcase or when the next shipment from Hong Kong will arrive—that is, unless you’re at the Penix home.

We’re the Penixes , the founders and creators of ZOMM—the world’s first wireless leash for mobile phones.

I’m the ZOMM Mom, better known as Laurie Penix, wife to Henry and mother to Zachry, Olivia and Madison. A little over a year ago, a girlfriend called me complaining about how her husband lost his iPhone…AGAIN. I’d heard too many stories like hers, and I knew there had to be a way to prevent phone loss scenarios like what her husband had experienced.

I went to my husband, Henry Penix, to help me make my dream a reality. With the help of a team of Bluetooth technology rockstars, ZOMM was unveiled at CES 2010.

Being a mom, my kids are the most important thing in the world to me. So I named our new baby after my kids—Zachry, Olivia and Madison’s Mom—ZOMM.

Now I’m the Co-Founder and President of ZOMM and we’ve just released our wireless leash to market!
