Everything But The House(EBTH)
Jacquie Denny is Founder and Chief Development Officer at EVERYTHING BUT THE HOUSE (EBTH). She launched EBTH in 2008 with partner Brian Graves, after 20 years at the helm of a Cincinnati-based estate sale business called Sorting It Out. Through that venture, she identified a need for a white-glove service that could help families during lifestyle transitions by selling all of their items at true market value. As EBTH has evolved into a global digital platform, the desire to ensure clients receive a fair compensation for their collections remains Jacquie’s top priority. Before her first estate sale venture, Jacquie worked in corporate training and sales management at Avon cosmetics and attended the Mendenhall School of Auctioneering.
Everything But The House(EBTH)
Brian Graves is Founder and Chief Learning Officer at EBTH, where he uses his extensive knowledge of history, antique valuation and authentication to help maximize value for EBTH clients. A longtime collector and a graduate of the Mendenhall School of Auctioneering, Brian founded EBTH in 2008 with Jacquie, after years spent buying, refurbishing and reselling antiques in his spare time. His passion for architecture, design, and history has been channeled into a rigorous study of how to identify, price, and market antiques, making him an excellent resource for EBTH’s special interest and high profile sales. Before EBTH, Brian led application development and assisted with quality improvement for the Emergency Medicine Department at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.
Owner/President, Junk King Cincinnati/Dayton
Pete McCreary devoted his life to his family and his community in service of others. His passion for recycling and social responsibility launched his career in the junk removal business in 2011. As the owner of Junk King Cincinnati & Dayton, he and his team committed to recycling materials and items that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill. As a lifelong servant, he channeled his energy to providing job opportunities, donating customers’ items to nonprofit agencies like NLFB, and assisting seniors with downsizing and transition. As a dear friend and business partner of EBTH, he established a national account making him the only franchise partner to have transactions with other Junk King locations.
Professionally, Pete and his team have been recognized with numerous awards, including Junk Kings Most Outstanding Franchise in 2016. After leaving us this past July, Pete’s legacy will forever be celebrated in the Greater Cincinnati community and beyond. His was a man of unequivocal selflessness as a professional, but more importantly, as a husband to Judy and a father of Ryan, Allie, Cami and Joshua.
