Meet Dmitriy Peregudov

Get to Know Dmitriy Peregudov!

Presenting the head honcho: Our Chief Gift Officer, Dmitriy Peregudov. We're only here because of him, and he never stops. We have an office pool at Christmas each year to see how little sleep he’ll be getting. Apparently, he lives on pure passion, because we have to remind him to eat. Geniuses are like that. Once upon a time, our intrepid CGO was all the departments. Now he oversees a global – and growing – team of regional offices, customer support representatives, administrators, and marketers, and he's primarily responsible for creating the company’s Global Growth Strategy and Automation Development. He uses his talents with software to create great tools based on ideas generated by team members from a number of departments.


Tell us about yourself. What's interesting or fun about you? What do you love to do and why?

I love traveling around the world and seeing new places. I try to travel often with my wife and two kids; I want to show them the world, because it’s something I didn't get a chance to do when I was little. I enjoy soccer: both watching it and playing it. It's a game that wakes up my spirit. Soccer works better than coffee, it works all the time – and it helps me keep working all the time. I also like beer. Belgian beers are my favorite, and I love brewing it at home to create unique flavors that just aren’t on the market.

What are your favorite holidays?

New Year is my favorite holiday. As a kid, this was a holiday when I was allowed to stay up late, and now it still has that special feeling that time spent with loved ones brings. It’s also a time to think about what I have done the year before, and to plan what I’d like to do in the year ahead, both in terms of personal achievements and places to see.

I’m the boss, so I like Boss’s Day too. The gifts from the experts I work with are always excellent, of course, but even more than that, when the employees take the time to appreciate me on that day, it lets me know that I’m doing something right for them. This leads to why I also like Administrative Professional’s Day. While the staff at GBO definitely handles more than administrative duties, it’s a good day to remember how hard people are working with you, and to let them know how much you appreciate it.

What are your favorite products in the GBO catalog?

Considering that I brew my own beer, I love our Beer & Gourmet Baskets. I particularly like the Beer From All Over the World basket; it’s got a great selection of beers to try, so it’s great for someone just getting into beer culture, or for someone who already likes a variety of beer. Lots of people don’t think about it, but beer is just as gourmet as wine. There are just as many flavors and styles of beer, and they can even be paired with foods and cheeses. They just make great gifts for many male recipients, in both personal and corporate realms.

What do you wish customers knew when they call in?

I want people to know that with they are in good hands: when it comes to International gifting, we take care of our clients from A to Z. Often, after using our services, our clients tell us that it's extremely easy to work with, and many of them tell us about the hell they experienced when trying to send a gift from their country across borders on their own before finding our website. I always keep coming back to our short YouTube video. This is the heart of what we can do for all of our customers, regardless of the size of their order, and I would like everyone to see it.



Since you're so awesome and talented, and could clearly work anywhere, what makes you love working at

In addition to my two real children, is my baby, so the question isn’t what makes me love working at GBO: It’s how could I think of working anywhere else? I’ve made it a point to surround myself with intelligent, talented, well-rounded people. I don’t have employees or subordinates; I have friends whose souls and talents are invested in making this company the very best it can be. Once, GBO was only my brainchild, but in so many important ways, it has become its own very real entity, born of the combined spirit and work of the people I’m proud to call my peers. After working in many medium and large companies, I want to shape GBO culture into something different, so that this company becomes a place that empowers every individual to do their best without need for micromanagement.
