This is Chris. He does CFO duties for Soaper Duper and our sister business- BEAUTY PIE, and it’s a good thing he’s in shape (ahem, a keen marathon runner) because he is BUSY! For Christmas shopping, he’s raiding the Product Development Department Shower gel cabinet. (He has to, really. He’s got his head perpetually stuck in a spreadsheet)
And this shining light of loveliness is Saskia, who heads up NPD (New Product Development), and -according to her MBTI- is one of those rare people who functions right down the middle of her brain, making her sensible, but strategic, detail-oriented, but big picture. Kind of like what you want to be when you grow up, really.
Florence, AKA Flo, Senior NPD Manager. She’s so fabulous. Like the glue that holds all of our projects together. Without her, we’d be nothing. She quietly moves through the everyday mayhem, finding solution after solution, without ever letting anybody see her sweat, which is why, in stressful situations, we default to ‘go with the Flo’.
Meet Rav (AKA Soap RAV-olution). Our New Product Development Assistant Manager, sidekick of Flo. Her remit? Resident DJ, essential oil research, storage re-orgs, everything else. Rav’s must-have? Our Zingy Ginger Body Wash, because all that zingyness makes her feel wellthy.
This is Thomas, Marketing Manager. He’s French, and therefore doesn’t believe in ‘the gym’, can play the piano with his eyes closed, speaks four languages (sigh, multilingual) and is a sucker for our Zingy Ginger Body Butter (who isn’t?).
This is Marissa. She’s our new-ish Marketing Assistant. She likes jumping off cliffs (into oceans obvs) has an obsession with watersports, and digs anything that involves a bit of danger. Her favourite product? Coconut Body Butter, which ironically is a bit of a safe pick, considering EVERYBODY loves it. (I mean, it’s not so dangerous, picking the winning horse.)
And the girl with the great pucker pictured here is Molly, our Junior Copywriter. Fast, flexible and feisty. She’s in charge of copy research, copy prep, copy polish, and aptly, she loves this particular hand wash for making her feel ‘like a vanillionaire’.
This is our People Director Victoria. When she’s not ruling the roost at Soaper Duper HQ, you might find her in a swimming pool. A silver paralympic medallist no less, Victoria credits Soaper Duper for avoiding the dryness that chlorine can cause and likes to indulge in a little Super Juicy Passionfruit in between her backstrokes.
Our Senior People Advisor, Charlotte is the proud founding member of our in-house recycling team who have taken the initiative to banish all deskside bins and introduce an office-wide recycling scheme. She has lunchtime French lessons and still finds time to be a hand model.
This is Elly. She works in our art department, can throw a label layout down at lightning speed, and is a massive fan of our Clean and Juicy Passionfruit body wash. (Of course from time to time we catch her sniffing her palms, which is a little weird, but we get it. We totally get it.)
This is Egle, our Photographer, who spends more time here at Soaper Duper BEHIND the camera than in front of it (hence, the captivating composition of her selfie, above.)
This is Monika. She helps run Ops (which we think are , although for those of you worriers out there, they aren’t Special Ops, we sell bath and shower supplies, for Pete’s sake.) You might wonder what she’s doing with a bottle of Body Wash on her head. And when she looked at our roll of portraits, so did she.
