About Team Beacon
Being an avid reader, Cameron Allen grew up surrounded by and immersed within stories. At the age of fourteen, he decided to turn his passion of reading into a monthly book subscription box business. In winter of 2017, Cameron’s once far-fetched idea launched into action. Cameron asked his parents Mike and Melissa, both who have immense business knowledge, for their input and advice. After much research, they decided to jump on board and support Cameron’s dream of running a business based on his love of books. Mike oversees Beacon Book Box, LLC, Cameron handles customer support, publishers and box curation and Melissa provides legal and social media assistance. It is truly a small, family-run business as Cameron’s sister, Faith, also assists with the box packing process. All curation, packing and shipping is performed onsite at the “Beacon Bunker”.
In addition to the Allen family, Team Beacon also includes
a small group of highly-talented individuals.
Erin Kim, a college-bound bookworm, is Beacon’s Social Media Coordinator. The Allen’s met Erin through Instagram (she applied to Beacon’s first influencer search) and had the opportunity to meet her at BookCon 2018 in New York City. Erin also helps Cameron with general company ideas and overall support.
Heather Morse is a fellow Michigander who is Team Beacon’s official Graphic Designer. The Allen’s met her through a friend and are so lucky to have her as a member of the team. Heather not only designs their incredible monthly theme artwork but also provides artwork for numerous items included in boxes.
Caroline Parrish is the newest member to Team Beacon. She met Cameron through Instagram and, just a few months later, Erin at BookCon 2019 in New York City. Caroline is the Creative Consultant and assists Cameron with item curation, theme generation and knowledge of Young Adult literature.
A note to everyone: We created this business to provide literary enjoyment and excitement to you and your family. Being avid readers, we truly understand the enjoyment of cuddling up with an awesome new book, using the exciting items included and being able to discover authors and novels whom you may not have heard of.
