Our small (but growing) and mighty company

How we got here

The story of Batch is a story of connection.

Established in 2013 by three friends — Sam Davidson, Stephen Moseley and Rob Williams — who wanted to make it easier to discover and share the cool stuff made in Nashville, Batch launched with a single product: a monthly subscription box featuring items handmade in and around Nashville.

The idea quickly caught on and by that holiday season, Batch was selling dozens of items online and fulfilling corporate gift orders shipping nationwide, all supporting the hard work of small businesses and entrepreneurs deeply passionate about their craft.
Batch specializes in custom curating a gift that features what you care about most, be it a city (brunch from New Orleans, snacks from Austin), an ethic (black-owned businesses, nonprofit-supporting products), or a brand (yours, of course!).

To date, Batch has sold more than 1 million locally made items, shipped to all 50 states (and dozens of countries). During these past nine years Batch has been a vehicle for the most important connections and sentiments we have as humans: gratitude, congratulations, sympathy, celebration, belonging - all delivered with impeccable service using the hard work and finely crafted handiwork of hundreds of makers. (If you'd like to be part of our purveyor network, reach out to us here.)

And should you need a little extra help finding that perfect gift, drop us a line. We'd love to help you stay connected to those who matter most, whether it's one person or 1,000.

The folks who make it happen

At Batch, our entire team works hard to curate and deliver locally made, artisanal goods, from and all across the USA. We offer meaningful, specialized gifts featuring high-quality, handcrafted items from our growing network of purveyors. And: no robots. Each batch we ship is hand-packed (with a gift note if you like) by a real human being.

Here are a few faces of those human beings that make up our team:

Rob Williams

Co-founder and CBO


Rob's keen eye for design and understanding of branding helps shape Batch's commitment to top-tier story-telling. As a Batch co-founder, he plans and protects Batch’s aesthetic, working to uphold the ideals and values that started this company back in 2013. Rob has been in Nashville for 20+ years, and has a reputation in Nashville’s local karaoke circuit to prove it.

Stephen Moseley

Co-founder and COO


Stephen's experience in media and technology brands runs the gamut from nonprofits to app companies, and online video to consumer brands. He takes an analytical eye to every obstacle, and approaches solutions with sensitivity and empathy. When not handling all things operations for Batch, he's spending time with his family on the trails, coaching (and watching) soccer, and slowly reading John Grisham novels.

Rhonda Ladner

VP Sales & Business Development


After nearly 30 years of business-to-business sales and marketing experience, this New Orleans-native and Mardis Gras-enthusiast puts the “pro” in professional sales. She works tirelessly with our corporate clients to pitch, curate, and customize Batch for each order’s specific needs. She always finds a way to make the answer to the question “yes”. Our strategy is a simple one: set up Rhonda for success, and we all succeed.

Erin Goode

Regional Sales Director, East Coast / 3rd Party Gift Consultant


Knowing that a gift is more than just stuff in a box, Erin puts thought and care into each client's order so that it doesn’t just look good, but it feels good too. As a native New Yorker, she thrives in a fast-paced setting, but can easily be mistaken for a true East Nashvillian when visiting our HQ.

Jean Thornton

Operations Director


In the time that it took to read this, Jean has responded to four emails, gift-ribboned seven boxes, and figured out how to fix the label printer. Originally from Hilton Head, South Carolina, Jean’s dedication and strong work ethic pushes and inspires everyone around her. She’s the reason that gift you just ordered is probably already on its way.

Bri Nightingale

Client Success Manager, Corporate Projects


Not everyone loses sleep over the exact colors of an order’s gift ribbon, but Bri does. They’re the one making sure your gifts ship on time and to your exact liking. When they’re not helping corral addresses, obtaining order details, and sharing tracking information, they’re supporting small business the old fashioned way: drinking local at their favorite Nashville breweries.

Zach Anderson

Customer Service Manager


Zach shows up each day with an unbridled positive attitude and is always the first to jump on a phone call to talk to a client. He wears the fanciest of pants and is even fancier when he sports his favorite Pokemon apparel every Wednesday. Check out his band, the Dreaded Laramie.

RJ Thornton

Accounting Manager


He's got the skills to pay the bills. Nashville drummer, avid chef, and encyclopedia of Reddit threads; RJ always has suggestions to make Batch better, and does so just by being on the team. His effortless confidence, fierce loyalty, and taste for tie-dye patterns gives Batch’s inventory/purchasing the spirit of a smokin’ Grateful Dead cover band.

We’re a gift company focused on the human side of gift giving. Every Batch gift, with intentionally selected goods, is hand packed by our team. Corporate gifting is a big business, but we’re on a mission to include small businesses and local makers in corporate gift sets. We seek out artisanal products handcrafted by makers across the country. Our corporate gift ideas highlight interests and causes that are important to you and your gift recipients.
