Our Team + Story
LUANNE DIBERNARDO, Co-founder + CEO (2nd from left)
Luanne doesn't play sports, but if she did, she would be an Olympic Sprinter.
Oro Sports co-founder and CEO, Luanne DiBernardo, started her cooling journey in 2008 with her brother Van DiBernardo, a former DKNY designer with heat intolerance due to a chronic condition. The siblings focused their "lifestyled" cooling garments for people with heat intolerance due to a chronic condition, operating as Coolure from 2010 through 2019.
It was then that Tom Burns, the engineer and founding CEO of QSG Technologies, where every cooling vest is constructed, made Luanne an offer she couldn't refuse: Oro Sports.

Matt joined Oro Sports in 2021 as President and COO. He has held leadership and founder roles in the pharmaceutical and med-tech space. Matt is leading Oro Sports to its position as the #1 innovative, go-to brand in cooling wearables.
