VIETRI was founded in 1983 by Lee Gravely and her daughters, Susan and Frances, after a family trip to Italy where they fell in love with the colorful handpainted Italian dinnerware of the Amalfi Coast. VIETRI is now America’s largest Italian ceramics importing company, partnering with numerous Italian manufacturers in various regions throughout Italy. With approximately 40 employees, VIETRI serves a customer base of over 2,000 specialty retailers and department stores in all 50 states and internationally. Susan continues to manage the product development process on a daily basis as Founder and CEO. She is married to Bill Ross and has two stepdaughters. Her favorite things in life are her family, her home, and her friends – and VIETRI!
