Responsible for warehouse organisation and global shipment of goods, Rhys is also instrumental in preparing stock for events.

His excellent organisational skills and attention to detail are key in his role, especially when managing delicate items. Notably, Rhys efficiently cleared a significant backlog of customer orders during a crucial holiday season.

When not at work, he indulges in wildlife photography and swimming, and enjoys Warhammer gaming. Rhys looks forward to refining stock processes and learning more about event operations at Superstars.

A unique fact about Rhys? He possesses a near-eidetic memory, allowing him to recall almost everything he reads, a trait that undoubtedly benefits his meticulous work with stock and inventory.

Rhys’s commitment to precision in his role, combined with his outside interests and exceptional memory, makes him a distinctive and valued member of the Superstars team.
