Nikki Challicombe

Sales and Customer Service Manager, Australia

As Think Outside’s Sales and Customer Service Manager, I am the frontline for all customer enquiries.  I have a passion for communicating and problem-solving, so I thoroughly enjoy having a role that focuses on growing and cultivating relationships.

Like our products, I am a one-of-a-kind, so I fitted into the family with ease. My initial hesitation about working in an office soon abated the moment I arrived and embraced the unique, quirky and happy culture that permeates throughout the Think Outside team.

I am also a mother of two and in a previous incarnation was a chef, so l enjoy treating the team to my culinary delights from time to time too!

Marketing Manager, International

I am an accredited member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing and have worked in digital marketing for almost twenty years.   I am British but based in Vietnam where the workshop and logistics center is and my team is responsible for the global marketing strategies.

I am a card-carrying crazy dog lady and in my spare time I love nothing better than volunteering at the local rescue center, riding my scooter in barmy Vietnam-traffic and of course, my favorite Think Outside character is Ralph the Dog!
