Nicole Williams

Company Director
"Profit in business comes from repeat customers; customers that boast about your product and service, and that bring friends with them."

Bjorn Gunnarson

Head of Design
"Loyal customers, they don’t just come back, they don’t simply recommend you, they insist that their friends do business with you."

Charlotte Banks

Research & Development
"You’ll never have a product or price advantage again. They can be easily duplicated, but a strong customer service culture can’t be copied."

Sam Gallagher

Customer Support
"Get closer than ever to your customers. So close that you tell them what they need well before they realize it themselves."
I’m so happy with the service from Shoptimizer – my order was delivered within 48 hours and the thought and care they put into their products really stands out. Plus, their support is just awesome!
