The principals of Trillion, Lou Leonardis of Enzo Creative, and Larissa Montecuollo of Tribecca Designs, are both New Jersey natives.  They share a history of success, having navigated their former studios through tough recessionary times, only to emerge stronger and better positioned for growth as Trillion; well-timed as the economy picks up steam.
