STEVEN DEVERAUX-STANFORD, Managing Director
With more than a decades experience in the international luxury property markets, Steven has lived across the world and experienced first had the consumption and demand for luxury goods.
A born marketer and salesperson, Steven was a director of a luxury property company in Sydney for nearly a decade selling and managing homes for some of Australia’s most high profile people.
Seeing the lengths owners would go to for their companion animals, and the lack of premium products and brands within the pet industry, an idea was born.
Stevens’ companion, a three-year-old Miniature Schnauzer called Cooper, is prone to outbreaks and has sensitive skin. Exhausting the market for quality products that were free from synthetic chemicals, Steven decided it time to develop his own range with industry experts.
In addition to this Steven sits on the Management Committee for national charity The Pinnacle Foundation of which provides educational scholarships for disadvantaged gay youth.
