Welcome to the team Holly and Jonaye

Holly Hu joined us in a permanent role 3 weeks ago. We initially hired Holly on a 3 month contract to help us while we moved into our new office but after 3 weeks we realised what a fantastic addition she was to the team so we hired her permanently.

Holly has joined us after spending 3 years with a US biodiesel firm based in China working as a translator and assisting in negotiations with suppliers. Having worked as a translator her English is excellent, and she's already proven her worth as a negotiator negotiating better deals for us with various suppliers in China.

Holly will work closely with Penny and Qun managing our order and shipping process in our china office.

Holly enjoys cooking and made the team an excellent chicken soup and dumplings for breakfast while I was in China 2 weeks ago. :)

Jonaye joined us last week as a customer service wonderperson. Once again we had over 20 applications for this role which was only advertised in early March via this blog and the Shoes of Prey blog.

Jonaye comes to us with a forbiddable skill set in relationship management and office administration having most recently worked as an administrative assistant for the Victoria Police Force in their crime department. She'll be working closely with Susie ensuring our customers are the happiest in the land and after only one week she has already picked up our sometimes chaotic systems and processes very quickly! Jonaye is also a singer, actor and dancer in her spare time.

We're so excited to have both Holly and Jonaye join the Shoes of Prey team.

  1. Hi Michael,

    Just wondering if you can provide any further info in how you found Holly Hu? I own an accessories business called Sterling & Hyde and we are looking for a negotiator/translator to assist us with the Chinese market and are unsure where to start in terms of finding these people to assist us? Any further info you could provide would be a big help.
