Elliot | Director, Co-Founder / Product Buying Jedi
Hey! I’m Elliot, I’m a founding member of luggage.co.nz & Homeware Online. I love web design and finding new and interesting products for us to sell while I’m at work! On my days off I like boating, fishing, watching the rugby and having a beer with friends. Let me know if you’ve seen any cool luggage, travel or homeware products that you think we should supply! Get up the All Blacks, Chiefs and Black Caps! (I like sport, can you tell?)
Guy | Director, Co-Founder / Mr. Fix It!
Hey I’m Guy, I co-founded luggage.co.nz & Homeware Online as I wanted to be part of a business that has a ‘Delivering Happiness’ culture, delivering wow experiences to our team & our customers! Google it if you are keen to learn more – it’s pretty cool stuff! I’m the Online Director here, so I’m in charge of all the crazy code stuff. I love that there is constant change in my role & everyday brings new challenges, no two days are ever the same. I really enjoy working with our team to deliver the best experiences we can for our customers. Outside the office, I love living in the Bay of Plenty & really enjoy getting out & exploring this slice of paradise we live in! Computer not working? Try turning it off and on again!
Kenny | Warehouse Extraordinaire
Hi, I’m Kenny! I came to NZ in 1984 and haven’t left! I love my family, food and Tauranga! I haven’t lived anywhere else in NZ, although I love traveling – who doesn’t right?! I’m always too hot – it’s the Scotsman in me! I’m the guy that makes sure your package arrives to you quick-smart! Keep an eye out, you may receive a personalised note from me with your order!
Bethany | Customer Happiness & Administration
Hey, I’m Bethany the voice on the other end of the phone or who you will get an email from! I love getting outdoors and being active. Most mornings you can find me climbing Papamoa Hills or smashing out a HIIT class at the gym. I love to spend my spare time baking treats for friends and family (yes my work colleagues get a tester occasionally), water skiing, camping or going for brunch with friends. I love being able to ensure customers get that great experience when shopping with us & can go away feeling happy and cared for.
Savannah | Content Creator
Hi there, I’m Savannah and I am in charge of all things content related! I spend a lot of time writing product descriptions, taking/sourcing photography and creating emails for our marketing campaigns. I have always had a passion for writing, and enjoy reading books when I find the time. I am totally dog obsessed and spend my lunch breaks playing with Willow – our work labradoodle. I have lived in Tauranga for most of my life and love spending lots of time at the beach during summer. The end goal is to save up enough money to own a wee puppy and a house by the ocean!
Jamie | Marketing Analyst / The Numbers Guy
Hey, I’m Jamie! Born and raised in Rotorua, I spent 5 years in Auckland and can confirm I’m glad to be out. Residing in Rotorua, I make the daily commute to Tauranga where I can chuck on some JRE or Flagrant 2 and enjoy the ride. I’m also a numbers person. My role at Luggage.co.nz is to implement and optimize our Marketing strategies using the data gathered from you, our valued customers with the goal of ensuring you get the best possible user experience.I do this by testing everything; Which creative provides the most clicks? Test it. Which landing page works best? Test it. Which route is fastest to get to work? Test it. Thanks for choosing to shop online!
