Who We Are

Meet our maker

Emma Worrollo produced her first child and first business – The Pineapple Lounge – in the same year. Her goal for both remains this: make life as exciting, creative and fulfilling as possible.

Our Purpose

Growing up, together

We all start there. Childhood. Coming of age. Discovering who we are – or who we might be. It’s been a universally shared experience for centuries. And brands have always played a role.

Yet today, the context in which these formative years take place is mind-blowingly unique. The world has changed. It’s hard to surface what really matters. It’s easy to get distracted.

Our purpose at The Pineapple Lounge is to connect brands directly with the deepest needs and desires of young people.

Emerging generations will disrupt the world for the better. But they’ll need everyone’s help getting there. Are you with us?

Our Ethics

Rest easy, parents:
We’re in it for everyone.

We see you gatekeeper. And we’re glad you’re here.

You see, we’re parents ourselves – and aunts, and uncles, and guardians, grandparents, children, siblings and human beings. As people, and as a company, we’re committed to making sure the world benefits from our work. All of our solutions have something in them for everyone.

We believe in helping young people establish healthy habits and behaviors. We believe in encouraging play, creativity and expression. We believe in empowering choice, possibility and opportunity. And we believe in having FUN.

Our ethics extend beyond our organizational philosophy. We adhere to international regulations and exceed the standards of third-party organizations.

OUR TEAM

United by our passion to help next generation youth find a purposeful place in the world.

We have brown hair, and pink hair. We love cartoons. We obsess over documentaries. We started our careers using acetate or an iPad. We like soccer and we like singing. We’re all different, but we’re all pineapples.

Born curious. Passionate for universal truths and cultural nuances, and translating them into useful information. Also self-appointed Breton Ambassador.

Dee Cahill

Joint Managing Director - Operations

TPL Control centre and caretaker of internal company culture. Manages finances, legal and contractual requirements. Oversees our vendor and partner relations. Huge fan of Gaelic football but don’t sit next to her on match day if you value your eardrums.

Group CEO

Jem is fascinated by people and culture and trying to make sense of the extraordinary things we do. When not at work, he is fascinated by fish, most particularly trout.

Martyn Hill

Business Development Director

When he isn’t convincing people they’re missing out on the best insight and strategy partners around, you can usually find him at the nearest gig venue.

Jordana Gilman
