Eve Wilson

Client Partner

Be yourself, everyone else is taken

After graduating from Leeds university, Eve moved back to her original stomping grounds in London and entered the fast-paced world of e-commerce. She has worked at multiple high-end, luxury brands including jimmy choo and condé nast – gaining a wealth of experience in merchandising and business development.

Enjoying working closely with her clients, eve made the move to work at amazon as a partner manager. Fast-forward a couple of years and multiple wild Friday after-work drinking sessions eve was ready to make the next step in her career. She joined toucan in 2019 as a client partner and has been impressing our clients ever since. Eve has taken our external training services from strength to strength and is your go-to for all things amazon.

In her spare time outside the office, Eve is most likely to be relaxing with her dog Sadie, planning her next holiday, eating and drinking at the best restaurants in London or out with her friends.

Sophie O'Brien

Head of client Services

"

If you’re not happy with where you’re at, move. You are not a tree

Sophie originally hails from London, our wonderful capital city. With an itch to travel and try new cultures, she has moved around throughout her life – jumping between Chicago, Malaysia and California.

Her travels around the world enabled Sophie to build up an incredible 10 years of experience working on large, international FMCG brands including P&G, Unilever and Pepsico. After moving to kuala lumpur 3 years ago to establish and build a media team of her own, the ever-changing and evolving world of ecommerce drew Sophie to a career specialising in amazon. She eventually settled back down in the u.k this year to join the toucan team as our head of client services. If you are in need of management expertise, organisation tips or account management magic, Sophie is your go-to woman.

You’re most likely to find Sophie off travelling the world (she hit 50 countries this year!) Or trying some new delicious food dining out in a new trendy restaurant. A self-confessed health nut, Sophie is a certified nutrition coach and avid gym-goer and having previously ran the Paris marathon she puts us all to shame!

Luke Bishop

Founder & COO

"

Fits in like a glove on a foot

Luke grew up in the quintessentially english market town of henley-on-thames. After graduating with a degree in biology, he moved back from southampton to the countryside and turned his attention to the world of digital marketing. Not one to rest on his laurels, luke began setting up his own consulting business and jumped into working for companies all over the uk.

During this time, luke quickly became an expert in web design, ppc and facebook advertising. With over 15 years of combined digital marketing experience and a passion for e-commerce, he was looking for his next move. This is when toucan e-commerce was born. Today, luke has 7 years of hands-on experience working with amazon and is your go-to guy for all things operational and logistic.

When he isn’t nose-deep in his laptop screen, you’re likely to find luke on long hikes with his crazy springer spaniels wilson and piper, or planning his next diy project. Fun fact; luke built his own house back in 2012 – pretty impressive!

Jaime Smart

Client Executive

"

a brand for a company is like a reputation for a person. You earn reputation by trying to do hard things well

Jamie was the first official toucan ecommerce hire back in 2019, but it took a few years for him to make the move into ecommerce. From studying personal training and sports massage, Jamie went on to be a personal trainer for five years. Despite enjoying his job, he wanted to try a new career path and chose to move into estate agency. Jamie excelled at building and managing strong relationships with his clients and he knew this was where his skills were best put to use. As toucan began to take flight, we were on the lookout for a new team member and the dynamic, fast-paced nature of the industry drew him in.

Staying true to his roots, Jamie is still as active as ever and on a sunny day you’re most likely to find him on the football pitch or a golf course somewhere. Jamie has also recently become a proud dog dad to George the cockapoo, I’m sure he will appreciate a follow on Instagram too! (@acockapoocalledgeorge)

Barbara Bottomley

Client Executive

"

he who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life

Barbara grew up down south in sunny Bournemouth where she went on to train as a horse-riding coach and stable manager. After working as a coach and yard manager for 14 years, Barbara decided to make a career change and moved into account management and sales. Her fantastic relationship building and communication skills made this an easy transition for her and in February this year, Barbara joined the toucan client services team.

If you can’t find Barbara at the gym, putting us all to shame with her dedicated workout routine, then you’re most likely to find her out and about exploring the uk. She will either be on a horse or her impressive motorbike for something more fast-paced. Good luck trying to keep up!

I’m great at building and maintaining great relationships with my clients

James Northcott

director & CeO

"

If it makes you happy, it doesn’t have to make sense to others

James decided to study criminology at Southampton, being drawn in by the allure of learning about the world of witchcraft and gang mentality. After completing his degree, he embarked on a solo trip to see the world. Once returning home, James was launched into the land of e-commerce and hasn’t looked back since. He spent 9 years learning the ins and outs of amazon, how to create the perfect strategy and ultimately, what it takes to succeed. Not only was James excelling in the e-commerce space, he was also motivated by a desire to be a successful entrepreneur and has set up a fitness clothing brand and a sports supplement company in his spare time.
 
After realising he had a true passion for Amazon, James and Luke joined forces to create toucan e-commerce. Today James is our go-to man for all things amazon but his strength truly lies in his strategic thinking and level-headed decision making. If you can’t find James in the office, he is most likely on the way to Starbucks for his daily dose of caffeine, working out in his garage gym or sipping a tequila cocktail in the garden tiki-bar.

My office skill

maintaining a lively and productive office environment is one of my main goals every day. A happy team is a successful team!

Claude Francis

Graphic Designer

"

oh snap!

Claude joined us early this year as our first ever official graphic designer with over 17 years of experience. After dabbling in music, video and graphics from an early age, Claude went on to study digital media production at university to build on these passions. He has had a very interesting career working as a housing support officer, football coach and at the royal courts of justice! Claude knew that design is where his heart belonged and so went on to work as a designer at the discovery channel before eventually moving to toucan.

 

You’re most likely to find Claude putting his natural creativity to work and photographing in his spare time or working on his own 3d designs. Claude loves cooking incredible food for his family and gaming with his son (let’s hope his gaming skills are as good as his design skills!)

My office skill

I’m the a+ content king – I’ll create you beautiful designs that highlight your brands usp’s and make your imagery really pop
