Meet Team Tubby
Anthony is the brains behind Tubby.co.nz and started it as a part time gig in the spare bedroom at home early in 2012. Anthony has over 10 years’ experience in the online game, running everything from student websites, corporate websites to various ecommerce sites. Being in the industry for so long, he got sick of seeing New Zealanders paying too much for products, so made it his mission to find a better way. It is still a work in progress, but Tubby already has hundreds of loyal customers and has saved our users thousands of dollars. He does everything from updating the website and customer service, to sending out orders. He has a Bachelor of Commerce, specialising in Marketing and Information Systems and when he’s not on his computer he loves soccer, cricket, golf and pretty much anything to do with sports.
Mark has been with Tubby from the beginning and prides himself as one of our "Founding Fathers". He is in charge of keeping all of us on our toes and spends most of his time looking after the helpdesk and working with overseas suppliers. Before Tubby Mark has seven years in the employment and recruitment industry where he worked with some of the largest corporates in NZ. He is really passionate about customer service and takes thing personally when things don’t go to plan. Outside of work he still finds the time to live a busy social life, run a household of females, keep fit, and work doing his own home renovations. When asked for an interesting fact that we don’t know Mark informed us that he is a classically trained pianist… who would have guessed!
Steph helps us out part time with social media, campaigning, newsletters and general administration stuff. She has a Bachelor of Applied Science, and about 5 years experience in website administration and customer service which she gained before and during her studies. Most of her work now is Science-based but she still can’t keep away and helps us out as much as she can. Steph loves to make crafty things, gardening, nature and the outdoors, and has recently picked up photography and horticulture as hobbies.
Georgi pretty much built the Tubby website from the ground up with his own bare hands. Needless to say, he is an expert in everything programming, and shares Tubby's desire to create the best online shopping site in New Zealand. He is responsible for putting all our feature requests into action on Tubby (and also keep us in check when our requests get out of control). When he's not in front of the computer making Tubby more awesome you will find Georgi at the beach, hanging with family or watching football!
