Chris Hilder: director - product development
Chris has been writing software for microcomputers since the halcyon days of the Apple II computer in the early 80's. Then he could get the computer to do anything but make the coffee. Now he has mastered the coffee making part too.
John Robson: director - marketing
John has been involved in the coffee industry in NZ for many years and brings formidable skills in marketing and market development. John is forging our retailer network and ensuring that all our customers are provided with tremendous service, and excellent coffee.
David Cohen: production adviser
David's background includes in excess of 25 years in product development, operations and project management in the electrical and electronics manufacturing industries. After that long in product development and engineering, an interest in good coffee was inevitable.
Rachel Elder: business adviser
Rachel was part of the team that seeded the successful OCHO PledgeMe campaign. She is also a Dunedin City Councillor. Rachel is part of the strong support network for local manufacturing in Dunedin. Her mantra, even before the first coffee of the morning kicks in, is “yes, we can!”
The Kaffelogic team is admirably supported by the Dunedin start up community. Dunedin is a great place for a start up because there is a strong community of mentors and suppliers to work with, as well as a lively coffee industry.
