CHICAGO, ILLINOIS (March 12, 2018) – The Quality Certification Alliance (QCA) welcomes Pierre Martichoux to its board of directors. Mr. Martichoux is the president of Chameleon like, a QCA Accredited Company since 2012. He has served as a volunteer on QCA’s finance committee and will continue in that role for the foreseeable future.


“It is an honor to welcome Pierre who joins other esteemed members of the board. His passion and a demonstrated commitment to growing QCA have been evident throughout his involvement on the finance committee,” said Tim Brown, MAS, executive director – operations. “His appointment will provide the organization with the insight and perspective of smaller suppliers. I cannot stress how important and valuable this is for the long-term growth initiatives of QCA,” continued Brown.


Established in 1998 in Northern California, Chameleon-Like, Inc. (formerly known as Chameleon Books & Journals) designs, produces and markets a comprehensive line of Journals, Notebooks, Binders, Folders and other Desk related products. From its humble entrepreneurial beginnings to date, the company has grown its revenue and expanded its operations every year (except for one) and continues to innovate in design and to provide customer service excellence. It produces the majority of its line in its Gilroy, CA factory and counts over 65 employees.


“The process that led Chameleon like to become QCA accredited was instrumental in preparing my company to double its size in less than five years, with minimal growing pains,” says Pierre Martichoux. “QCA is so much more than an independent organization that champions product quality and safety. I am honored to become the latest member of the QCA Board and share my experience and vision for the organization!”.
