My background has been mostly retail – selling everything from jeans and clothes in Australia and New Zealand to sun cream and diamond rings on cruise ships.
I did break away from this for 4 years to go work as a deck hand on a superyacht which was choice, but back in the home land now and enjoying my role as Logistics Manager for Mr Ralph.
I manage supply and distribution of stock from our warehouse, with the support of the wonderful warehouse crew!
I'm spending far more time in front of a computer lately whilst working to set up our new website and warehouse system!
Check banking, check e-mails, check in with the warehouse girls and see what they are up to and if they need anything, work on my to-do list (product jobs/website jobs/manage stock orders/moving stock around warehouse/unloading containers/warehouse improvements/cleaning and tidying etc etc etc), get distracted from to-do list with urgent e-mails/ issues that arise, check in again with the warehouse, try and get back to to-do list – and this kind of makes up my week. Split up with a day out of Paeroa for a meeting every now and then.
100% The team! The girls that I work with in Paeroa and Phil (our token man) are totally awesome, Rach is an incredible boss and always has something new and interesting to tell you, and the wider team whom I don’t get to see nearly as much as I would like to but are all an absolute pleasure to work with.
The new warehouse system is going to be next level awesome once we are into the swing of it, and then looking at improving the space by installing more racking and any other bits we can do to make everything run as efficiently as possible. We have also been working very hard to remove the polystyrene packaging from Mr Ralph product. We are most of the way there apart from some of the large and tricky shaped items so looking forward to the day we can be totally polystyrene free!
The Boho - I love the personality you can put into the design and the earthy natural vibe that they give to a space, and you can mix it up with any of our cool bulbs!
