Meet Our Team!

We wouldn’t be where we are today without our luggage.co.nz & Homeware Online team! We’re a small dedicated bunch that love what we do. From our offices up here in beautiful Tauranga, we take what we do seriously – but always make sure the day is full of laughter, banter and food!

Get to know the luggage.co.nz & Homeware Online team below! 

 

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!

 

Kaitlin | Customer Happiness & Administration

Hi I'm Kaitlin and I'm here to keep you happy :) Have a question about your order? Want to know more about our products? I'm here to help! I love travel of course and have spent some time living overseas in London and Los Angeles, but Tauranga has always been home and I'm glad to be back. Outside of work you'll likely catch me singing and dancing on stage, I've been involved in local community theatre all my life and can't get enough of it, I'm a real musical theatre nerd!

 

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!

 

Sam | The Wordy One

Hey, I’m Sam! I’m the words gal here, which is good because I’ve always loved writing (puns and dad jokes are also always welcomed!) You’ll find me writing product descriptions, managing our social media (slide into the DM’s for a chat), email marketing, and even doing some image sourcing/photography which is fun! I emigrated from South Africa and have been loving life in the Bay of Plenty (I’ve certainly found *plenty* of beautiful nature and good coffee yay!) I love heading to the beach for a run or a swim and also fancy a good book, a glass of red with the family, and love a good grocery-isle-roam for new snacks. I enjoy travelling and spent some time living in South Korea teaching English and gallivanting around Asia during vacations – a highlight was experiencing new cultures and cuisines! I’m enjoying my daily commutes between work and Papamoa – I’ll either chuck on a podcast, or some jams for 30 minutes of off-key belting and harmonising!

 

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 Homeware Online 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 will increase clicks? Test it. Which landing page works best? Test it. Which route is fastest to get to work? Test it.
