Rob Kaldor is the eCommerce Manager for Dymocks and can't stand listening to his own voice on playback. He loves non-fiction and comedy. He is currently reading James Packer's Biography and Russell Brand's Autobiography. Rob believes there are only 2 food groups boring and spicy. When not doing podcasts or managing the Dymocks Website he hangs out with his wife, 3 kids and the ever faithful Pepper the hound.
Sophie Higgins is the Senior Category Manager at Dymocks. She started out buying the Children's books for the stores in 2010 when she came to Dymocks from being the Book Buyer for the ABC Shops. She now looks after the Fiction category and has since barely looked up from the pages of a book, even crime novels that give her the creeps. She is very happy though that the current boom in the romance category means that she can be out and proud with her enjoyment of a good old-fashioned love story. She loves her faithful hound Basta, and anything to do with Italian Food!
Paige Butchers works in the marketing team at Dymocks, living the dream in the world of the Booklover Rewards Program! She is constantly trying to keep up with the pace of her colleagues when reading all of the new releases at Dymocks, but manages to find herself reading the older titles in your 101 Favourites of all time! On the weekends she is either doing yoga, cross-stich or burning rubber on the race track with her identical twin sister in their Honda Prelude, and of course, everyone else is eating their dust!
Corrine Chiswick works in the marketing department at Dymocks and is passionate about food! She loves to cook, loves to bake, loves to dine at the latest restaurants and loves to talk about food. She would sign up for the next season of My Kitchen Rules if only it was not televised... She can be a little camera shy at times. Her favourite food you ask, her mum's Lemon Delicious Pudding. When she is not in the kitchen, she is spending time with her friends and family, taking a walking in the park, dancing at a music gig or of course sitting on the lounge reading!!
Paul Swain is the HR Manager at Dymocks. He's originally from England but we don't hold that against him. He loves to read the widest variety of books that he can get so he's in the right place, and takes many diverse recommendations from our book buyers. They regularly take advantage of this opportunity, much to their amusement. When he's not looking after all of us at Dymocks he can either be found wakeboarding, taking early morning runs at the beach or furthering his mission to visit every winery in NSW. Although he hasn't found a way to combine all of his hobbies together in one quite yet!
Ruth Ellis has been working for Dymocks since 2009 and has been a passionate reader since long before then. She's currently the category manager for children’s and travel. She spends most of her time with her nose in a good children’s book channelling her inner Matilda, and when she takes a break she can usually be found at her local cinema.
Mark Howden is a Graphic Designer in the Dymocks Marketing team. A self confessed geek who understands that key trait of any geek is that when they are interested in something, it becomes an obsession – a blessing and a curse. A huge Superhero fan, he is never without the Superman insignia somewhere on his person, be it keyring or belt buckle. He is always reading either Historical Fiction, Fantasy or any book that will further his knowledge of lesser know facts. When he's not designing stunning press ads or reading, he and his wife team up as toddler wranglers for their three beautiful children.
Rhys works as a Category Manager in the buying team, desperately reading as much as his eyes and mind can take in. Got thrown into the reading pool by his parents at a young age, and is yet to come up for a breath. When not at work he can most often be found in his backyard with a book in his hand and a beer by his side, wishing he had a dog with which to round out the perfect trifecta.
