About Us


Elizabeth Allman Massoud (“Beth”) was born in Long Island, NY of parents of mixed European decent (big chunk of Irish in there) and grew up near Boston. She attended Harvard University and Harvard Business School, where she was attracted to Joe by his unabashed ownership of a beat up Chrysler LeBaron convertible. Beth is the recent ex-chairman of the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity and is also heavily involved with her alma mater, Harvard University.

Beth is an executive with Ed Mitchell’s Inc., a growing group of family owned high end clothing retailers. She is also the CEO of the Massoud household.

Ihab Joseph Massoud (“Joe”) was born in New York of recent Egyptian immigrant parents. He grew up all over the United States, including in New York, Indiana, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and California. Joe attended Claremont McKenna College and Harvard Business School. At HBS, he was lucky to meet his wife, Beth, who obviously suffered a lapse of judgment. Joe is an avid youth sports coach and is on the boards of directors of the local chapter of Big Brothers Big Sisters and of Families Network of Western Connecticut.

Joe is the Managing Director of Anholt Services (USA), Inc., the investment subsidiary of the Kattegat Trust, a large philanthropic foundation. Anholt’s efforts span a fun range of assets, from agricultural land investments to petroleum transportation to African and Asian public securities to North American leveraged buyouts. Joe is also a transportation and logistics executive in the Massoud household.

Joe and Beth reside in Westport, Connecticut and have three active sons: Nicholas, Brendan and Alexander. Our favorite activities are traveling, spending the summer at our beach house and just hanging out together.
