The Sliquid Staff
Dean Elliott – Founder/CEO
Dean Elliott is the larger than life Founder & CEO of Sliquid, LLC. Dean is what might be considered a serial entrepreneur, having been a part of what seems to be every industry imaginable since earning his liberal arts degree from NYU. Starting in the late 90’s, Dean was coordinating location logistics, including security, medic & transportation, for the booming reality TV industry. He worked on just about every reality show you can name, on location all over the world. At the same time, Dean was building a reputation as a successful voiceover artist, voicing spots for many of the coolest brands, including Volvo & the WWF. Everything Dean does, he does wholeheartedly, and with a passion for excellence. He came up with the idea for Sliquid at the beginning of the new millennium, and had products formulated and on shelves within 2 years. Since then, Dean has grown Sliquid into one of the biggest and most respected brands of intimate products, with no signs of slowing down. Don’t think he has gotten comfortable though – Dean is currently working hard on his next venture(s) – and you can be sure it will be a success.
Michelle Marcus – VP of Sales
Ms. Marcus is a multi-faceted broadcast professional, known affectionately as “Glitter,” and once you see her shine on the sales floor, you will never have to ask why. Michelle joins the Sliquid staff with over ten years of experience in Broadcast Public Relations, Client Services and Television News Producing. She has worked with both large-scale & boutique clients across the US, developing “advertorial” pieces for America’s most sought after consumer brands, which has allowed Glitter great successes in both sales and creative development. She also brings to the table hands-on experience in the Trade Show Industry, which is a great bonus to the Sliquid team, as their presence is often found at the most widely attended shows around the world. Born in Pittsburgh PA, raised in Northern NJ & currently residing in Dallas, TX, Michelle spends her time outside of the office with her fashion-forward black toy poodle, Daphne.
Colin Roy – Senior VP
Kris Klinko – Accounting
Kris is the new leader of the Sliquid Accounting Department, and she handles all of the cash flow, in and out. With over 16 years experience in the accounting world, she has a knack for pinching pennies, and is a Quickbooks whiz. Outside of the office, she and her husband own various rental properties in the DFW area. Kris has stepped right into her role here at Sliquid HQ, and is working hard to keep everyone in line and her desk clean.
Alex Guffey – Creative
Alex is an illustrator, graphic designer, and writer. In his spare time, he enjoys space travel, time travel, and normal travel. Alex studied graphic design and animation at the Art Institute of Dallas, and has worked in a variety of museums, galleries and studios, creatively solving problems and collaborating with other artists, photographers and musicians. It is Alex’s life goal to somehow accidentally be imbued with super powers – specifically the ability to fly – but if that doesn’t pan out, Alex plans to keep making art.
Richard Riddler – Warehouse
Sliquid, LLC is based in Texas, but from the cast of characters that keep the place afloat, you would never know it. That is, until you meet Richard. With his down south drawl and his love (obsession?) with competitive fishing, you know right away that Texas is his home. Richard is the warehouse manager for Sliquid, LLC, and is in charge of packing and shipping all of the lube that ships all over the world. He also manages the ever-growing Sliquid Shop, putting together the non-descript orders for individuals all over the US and Canada. Another aspect of his Warehouse Manager title is inventory management, a critical position in the demanding world of cost management. In that role he makes sure Dean and Michelle always have enough Sliquid in stock to keep things moving along smoothly, much like Sliquid does in your bedroom (or wherever else you choose to play).
