Mark and Sofia, the Ambassadors
Pebble's way into the German-speaking market began in 2010 with a business trip to Bangladesh. When Mark Hachmann and Sofia Lopes came across the brand, it was love at first sight. Who could possibly resist this project and people?! At this point Pebble was just six months old – so we became an exclusive distributor partner and helped lifting the brand out of its infancy and to bring it to the children’s rooms in Germany, Austria, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland and meanwhile the Benelux countries.
And that was only the beginning: The story of Pebble inspired us to look for more products that had something more to say, so 1 of a kind was born: Since then we have been selling small and fine brands with social and sustainable aspirations – that are serious about making the world a better place.
FOUNDER & CEO
After fifteen years in the upscale management of a large Hong Kong trading company and an American restructuring company, Mark had seen, experienced and understood enough – it was time for something of his own. Time for more meaning. Time to push forward change but to lag behind.
CO-FOUNDER & DIGITAL MARKETING
Sofia has spent much of her life in Asia and the fashion world, and has stumbled over many small fine brands over time, which have lived a niche existence. A case for 1 of a kind! As a journalist and head of marketing, she makes sure that our brands get out there.
HEAD OF QUALITY
Quality is our highest priority. All our toys are tested by Lucas and his team with their own hands, feet and - if necessary teeth - on durability, tear strength, aerodynamics and product safety.
In our in-house test laboratory, young talents can gain first practical experience. Lia completes our test service with regard to the cuddling factor, color and wash-ability under (sometimes too) strict supervision of her superior Lucas.
