Ashley Shamba

Warehouse Assistant - Zimbabwe
Mr. Ashley, the man with a plan, is most likely found in the warehouse sorting out last minute & extremely important deliveries. He is very precise in his methods and needs not to be questioned when it comes to product knowledge. Ashley is somewhat of a miracle man when it comes to product testing, organization, and packaging. He is generally the main point of contact for all incoming and outgoing shipments and has a great relationship with all the courier companies.

Denford Munyuki

Warehouse Assistant - Zimbabwe
Denford, or as we call him Denny, is part of our efficient warehouse team. He may seem quiet at first but he always has a joke up his sleeve and a smile on his face. He packs orders and sends them out with love to all of our clients. Dubbed the office sweetheart, he is always polite and cheerful, but with the strength of Goliath from all of his lifting, he is no walkover. His claim to fame is being the younger brother of Craig David's doppelgänger.
