Santa Claus is the CEO and founder of Kringle Global Logistics, Inc., a toy manufacturing conglomerate with an unmatched reputation for rapid delivery. With over 1 billion customers worldwide, mostly "nice" children, Santa raked in billions of net cookies last December alone.
Based deep in the arctic circle, KGL's headquarters also houses its manufacturing and sorting facilities - and its proprietary delivery system which remains shrouded in secrecy.
When Claus began a simple "Mom and Pop" operation with his wife, they never dreamed it could get so big. Then they were able to raise the venture capital they needed when they developed a plan to outsource manufacturing. By striking a deal with the Arctic Federation of Elves, a powerful labor union, KGL became an instant player in the global market.
But it was Claus's passion for toys, he says, that sets his company apart.
