JESSICA LLOYD is the Co-Founder & COO of PANATEA, a health and lifestyle-driven matcha green tea company based in NYC. She founded the company with her husband Dave after matcha changed their lives (its inherent health benefits include antioxidant activity & focused energy!). Together, they set out on a journey to change the way Millenials experience tea -- starting with matcha. They launched a full-blown movement, reinventing the category with their high quality and innovative products. The company has seen explosive growth across both of its businesses, including an online direct-to-consumer business and a food service business that partners with cafes & shops throughout the country. Prior to joining forces with Dave, Jess worked with in Finance at a boutique investor relations firm in the biotech space. Jessica now brings her financial background and operational skills to PANATEA’s processes, infrastructure, and expanding product pipeline. She is passionate about healthy living and loves to experiment in the kitchen, as well as run, practice yoga and dance. Her and Dave are expecting their first child this June!
