Jon Sumroy is the mifold CEO and inventor of the mifold grab-and-go backless and hifold fit-and-fold highback boosters. Like 25 percent of all child journeys, Jon’s kids often rode without the correct car seat: carpooling, grandparents, taxis, rentals, vacations, etc. This motivated him to create the ultra-compact child restraint category, launching a range of compact, portable, adjustable child restraint systems in 2016 that are ideal for busy parents and caregivers. mifold is so small and portable, it can easily be moved from car to car, also making it ideal for car-sharing and ride-hailing. With more than one million seats sold worldwide, including to taxi and ride-hailing fleets, police departments, car rental companies, and more, Jon recently launched hifold, the world’s most adjustable and portable highback booster.
Eve Miller has served as part of the Institutional Sales Team for Evenflo Company, Inc. for the past 12 years.
