About Our Guest

Torrance Hart leads the sales team in addition to driving business strategy for Teak & Twine. A born entrepreneur, Torrance spent eight years in the Air Force before launching Teak & Twine in 2015. The company was born out of her combined passion for business and marketing and her love of quality products in beautiful packaging. At the time, Teak & Twine was focused on creating custom wedding guest boxes, but an opportunity to create a holiday gift for Microsoft helped Torrance identify the company’s true niche. She’s since grown Teak & Twine into a multi-million dollar business focused exclusively on corporate gifting. Torrance Hart has shared her expertise in marketing, retail, and product-based businesses on The Goal Digger, Pattern of Purpose, The Brand Strategy Podcast, She Creates Business, and more.
