Meet the CEO
Born on August 17, 1979, young Kaliko Caldwell learned about discipline and
determination at a very young age. Her family tells of a five year old Kaliko rolling
her very own enormous pumpkin for 3 blocks to get it home.
“I really wanted that pumpkin” she laughs.
Growing up her father Rabbi Caldwell encouraged her to be
independent. He always knew she would be a business woman and constantly
showered herwith words of validation, “One day you will own your company”.
Her mother Mary Caldwell and Aunt Helen inspired a love for fashion. She has
memories of the room full of beautiful, superior fabrics that belonged to her Aunt
Helen and watching her mother gracefully select fabrics and turn them into
conversation pieces with her own hands. She admired the skills and artistic talents
of her mother and aunt as she watched them sew.
Kaliko left her hometown of Gary, IN to pursue her dreams. She
departed to Indianapolis, IN in 2005 for better career opportunities and was introduced to a new consumer market.
Kaliko Caldwell is an active member in her community. She is a longtime
volunteer for Dress for Success and a partner with Mission Accomplished Charity
Organization. Humbling herself before God, she has learned to forgive often and
strives to lead a peaceful and positive lifestyle. Fred Bolden, her partner, is a very
influential person in her life. His encouragement and confidence in her success has
played a very important role to the birth of Crème de LEE Crème.
