Meet Our Team!
We wouldn’t be where we are today without our luggage.co.nz team! We’re a small dedicated bunch that love what we do. From our offices up here in beautiful Tauranga, overlooking majestic Mount Maunganui, 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 team below!
Aimee | Accounts Wizardess (is that a word?!)
Hey I’m Aimee! I’ve been a part of the team since the early days of luggage.co.nz. You may have heard my friendly voice on the other end of the phone in the past but now I’m more behind the scenes crunching the numbers and stuff – really, I’m a lady of leisure! My hobbies include CrossFit, Hiphop dancing, drinking coffee and eating… yeah we are all pretty into eating here. I also have hopes and dreams of owning a dog and a cat one day. *hint *hint*
Elliot | Director, Co-Founder & Product Buying Jedi
Hey! I’m Elliot, I’m a Founding member of luggage.co.nz and 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 or travel products that you think we should supply! Get up the All Blacks, Chiefs and Warriors! (I like sport, can you tell?)
Guy | Online Director/ Mr. Fix It!
Hey I’m Guy, I co-founded luggage.co.nz 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!
Hollie | Marketing (the) MANager
Hi I’m Hollie, I like food. My day is always a varied and busy one, I'm constantly on the hunt for the next BIG thing for luggage.co.nz. I’ve been with the team since day one and you could say I’m pretty comfortable here now (I rarely wear shoes in the office tbh)! When I’m not in the office I’m usually off adventuring somewhere sweet with my three best friends (my dogs…) or getting crafty in my tiny house kitchen - hit me up if you want a sick Lemon Butter Chicken recipe! I will forever campaign for an at work doggy day care. Oh, and be nice to me... I run the competitions!
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!
Lauren | Customer Service Fanatic
Hey! I’m Lauren, I love travel, animals, people, food, WINE and our planet. I have just moved to the Mount from Cambridge and I am loving it – mainly because of the great people I get to work with (can you guess someone edited these?). Speaking of work, I’m the person you’ll touch base with if you call, email or live chat us here at luggage.co.nz! Feel free to say hi, I love chatting with our customers and getting to know you all!
