We are committed to diversity and nurturing talent, and proud of being a first-time employer for hundreds of local students new to the workforce annually.

Our portfolio only benefits from the people who are connected to them –– the employees, the business owners, and the patrons who round out and provide a sense of community within the sprawling Los Angeles area. And when everyone involved is operating together with respect and support for one another, that creates businesses that flourish.

Giving back to the community is a pillar in our lives and our founders, Mark and Lani, are both very active in their local community. In addition to being first-time employers, Mark and Lani donate generously on a regular basis to Santa Monica High School, St. Monica’s High School, and the Santa Monica YMCA. The Verges are also very active in the Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA, raising money for cancer research.
