When lesbian partners Donna Grindle and Karla Kreitner decided to start a business together, they combined their names to make their mark and Kardon Group LLC was founded in 1999. Kardon Group is the parent company that includes two divisions: Kardon Technology and Kardon Events.
Grindle and Kreitner held a launch party for Kardon Technology in September. Kardon Technology was formed to provide technology assistance for small businesses in Atlanta and the Southeast.
Kardon Events, formed in 2006, helps plan customer appreciation events and can be seen planning numerous gay Atlanta networking events as well.
