Who We Are
Gluten-Free Saver is a flash sale and product discovery site that’s customized for your gluten-free needs. We partner with trusted businesses to offer exclusive, limited-time promotions on a variety of gluten-free products and services. By working closely with some of the most well-known (and some not so well-known) and respected businesses in the gluten-free community, we are able to offer customized promotions that you simply can’t get anywhere else! We know that you have enough on your plate each and every day, which is why our promotions are live for seven days. We promise to provide you with amazing gluten-free products and unbeatable prices!
First and foremost, we place a strong emphasis on customer service. We value and greatly appreciate each and every one of our customers and promise to always maintain our “customer first” mentality.
Since two of our co-founders are currently living with celiac disease, we know first-hand how expensive a gluten-free lifestyle can be. In fact, studies indicate that individuals who follow a gluten-free diet could be paying up to 3x more per year for their gluten-free products! Our goal is to provide you with promotions on your favorite gluten-free products, so that you can live a happy, healthy gluten-free lifestyle, without spending all of your hard earned money! All of our promotions are hand-picked by the Gluten-Free Saver Extreme Savings Team and are given our personal stamp of approval, which means that you are guaranteed to love the promotions, too.
And, since Gluten-Free Saver was created with your needs in mind, we want to hear from you. The good, the bad and even the ugly! As our thanks for your time, we promise to listen to your thoughts on our services. Should you have any comments, suggestions, questions or concerns, send an email to email@example.com and we’ll be sure to get back to you as soon as we possibly can.
The Gluten-Free Saver Extreme Savings Team
Chad Hines, Co-Founder
Chad was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1989, when he was 7 years old. After being misdiagnosed on several occasions, he has been living a healthy, gluten-free lifestyle for over 22 years. Chad attended the University of Southern California, where he majored in Policy, Planning and Development and received a minor in Business.
Currently, Chad owns an insurance brokerage in Mission Viejo, CA and also consults with small businesses on their on and offline marketing strategies in an effort to help them realize their full potential.
In May 2009, he founded an online, gluten-free social network where individuals can come together and provide support, information and guidance for one another. The popular gluten-free social network, Gluten-Free Faces (www.GlutenFreeFaces.com), provides members with an easy-to-use platform for instantly obtaining and sharing valuable and trusted gluten-free information.
In addition, Chad serves on the Board of Directors for the Celiac Disease Foundation and is directly involved with the fundraising and marketing strategies for the foundation.
Aside from his professional life, Chad is an avid sports fan and golfer. Although his dreams of becoming a professional golfer might not be realized, he still enjoys playing a few rounds each month with his family and friends.
Max Librach, Co-Founder
Max was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2000 at the age of 16. Max struggled during these early years to find anything gluten free or even anyone who had heard of celiac. Embracing his diet, Max made it a point to travel as much as possible during his college years and had the opportunity (and challenge) to eat gluten free in Italy, Israel, Mexico, Chile, Brazil, Jordan, Turkey and Brussels. After much travel, Max eventually graduated from Georgetown University where he majored in Government and minored in Arabic and Hebrew.
Soon after graduation, Max became interested in how celiac disease affected nutrition and began researching nutrient deficiencies and supplements for celiac disease. The result was CeliAct, a nutritional supplement created just for people with celiac disease (www.CeliAct.com), which has quickly grown to become one of the most trusted gluten-free supplements on the market today.
When Max isn’t wearing one of these several hats, you will most likely find him on his balcony, reading a book on history or Middle Eastern politics while sipping on one of his favorite gluten-free hard ciders.
Max is an author at the CeliAct Blog, a gluten-free health and lifestyle blog.
Zach Rachins, Co-Founder
Zach gained a unique perspective on celiac disease and the gluten free diet at an early age, growing up alongside Max. While he does not have celiac, nor does he follow a gluten-free diet, he finds it extremely interesting that many people are still in the dark about the gluten-free diet as a medical necessity.
In July 2010, Zach co-founded CeliAct (www.CeliAct.com), a nutritional supplement specifically for people with celiac disease.
After starting his work on CeliAct and speaking to other business owners in the gluten-free industry, several things became clear: many business owners have great, unique products; many of these business owners don’t have the resources to ‘get the word out’; and, gluten-free consumers spend WAY too much money to live gluten-free!
So, he wondered, “How can these businesses get greater exposure, and how can consumers not constantly be subject to such an expensive diet?” After multiple discussions with Chad and Max, Gluten-Free Saver was born.
Zach graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a dual degree in International Business and Economics and International Affairs. He has studied in Italy, and worked in Chile for a year after graduating.
Zach is an author at the CeliAct Blog, a gluten-free health and lifestyle blog.
When not working on CeliAct or Gluten-Free Saver, he enjoys hitting the tennis and basketball courts in the city. He enjoys anything Larry David has to do with, and loves to see the Lakers lose almost as much as he likes to see the Celtics win.
