Good luck Ken and welcome to the team Dave!

Ken, our operations manager in China has his last day with us today. :( Our loss is the startup world's gain as Ken is leaving us to set up his own business producing and wholesaling women's shoes for the comfort segment of the Chinese market. Ken has been a fantastic member of our team helping to grow and support our team in China, as well as working closely with Jodie on a new range of shoes we'll be launching on our site shortly. We're sad to see Ken go but we wish him all the best in his new venture.

With Ken's departure we're excited to welcome Dave Knapp to the team on a 6 month contract to take over the management of our operations in China. Dave completed a Bachelor of Business at the University of Queensland and has spent the last 4.5 years working as a Commercial Property Sales and Leasing Negotiator based in Brisbane. His excellent people and negotiating skills will hold him in good stead for working closely with our team and suppliers in China. Dave spent the first week of January with us in our Sydney office and flew to China just over a week ago. In case you spotted the resemblance and surname, Dave also doubles as Mike's brother. :)

We'll start the process of hiring a permanent replacement for this role shortly.

Please join me in wishing Ken all the best and welcoming Dave to the team!

  1. Brave...I find anything more than one nap a day, and I'm overly tired. Good luck Dave.
