Kimberly Caccavo

GRACEDBYGRIT
Co-Founder
Kimberly brought technology and business experience to GRACEDBYGRIT. She received her BS in Chemical Engineering from UC Berkeley. She was a research engineer focused on metals used in the space shuttle and later on ceramic heat engines. She LOVED it. She then entered the business world, received an MBA from UCLA and held a variety of executive positions: ran the telephone directory business; helped privatize a Latin American phone company; started a cable company; worked in Hollywood and had her own consultancy helping people start businesses.

Kimberly and Kate were inspired to start GRACEDBYGRIT while training for a triathlon. They
realized there was a lack of high-performance athletic apparel for 30-60 year old women that made them feel safe with a whistle and a phone pocket, look great and protect them from the sun. Starting a new company is a crazy thing to do in your 50’s, but with an amazing team it’s never too late!

Kimberly has been GRACEDBYGRIT many times: she helped her single mom balance a checkbook when she was eight years old; she married young and was widowed; she survived a kidnapping attempt; now she is graced with a great business and an entertaining family that keeps her on her toes. Kimberly is married to Jim Caccavo and has two teenage children.
