MEET MEGMADE : MEETING MEG AND JOE!
Born and raised in Champagne, Illinois and a graduate with an accounting degree from the University of Illinois, Joe Piercy has always been the life of the party in Illinois. As once said by his teacher, “ If you search the word Joy in the dictionary, you will see a picture of Joe,” and it’s true because Joe not only brings joy to his family but anyone he meets. A former homecoming king in high school, and still one of his proud moments, Joe, to this day, continuously shows his influence and leadership alongside Meg MegMade.
A homebody at heart, when Joe isn’t at MegMade, he enjoys being up with his children, and as he simply put, “ Hanging out with Meg”. Although, Meg and Joe have a sweet spot for traveling, and whenever they get a chance, they like to explore and see new places.
Joe only hopes for people to see how much love is put into each and every project at MegMade. He loves to “get his hands dirty” and being part of the reason a project comes to life. “I just love watching the whole process behind what we do, because although the after is amazing, there is so much hard work, love, and strategy that is put into each and every design.”
Joe is a family man and always has been. As the youngest sibling of three and growing up working next to his family in a family-owned shoe store, Joe knows the value of having a strong family foundation. Joe’s a dad first, and an entrepreneur second, and that’s the driving force behind what he does.
As Meg said, “He’s always the cheerleader,” because Joe is always ready to get things done, he always brings a positive motivation like no other, and always has a half glass full mentality. Joe is a family man and always has been. Joe’s a dad first, and an entrepreneur second, and that is and will always be the driving force behind what he does.
