HOPE

STORE MANAGER

The award that has always caught my eye are the Koru Glass trophies. The traditional aspects are unique and to me, they represent New Zealand. As a Manager of Apex, my job is to interact and provide excellent service to our customers, and to make sure that I can offer products tailored according to their needs. The best part about my job is to see our customers’ smiles when receiving their order just as how they’ve imagined it to be.

Outside of work I’m either at home, snuggling in the sofa and watching Netflix, cooking homemade meals for myself and my family, or outside walking at the park and meeting up with friends. Ask me what the last movie I watched was!

JOSEPH

SENIOR ENGRAVER

I love it when a big trophy comes together like this and seeing the smiles of people holding it up. I enjoy all competitive stuff and seeing how intricate machine and software functions work! As the senior engraver at Apex, I have had lots of experience using all the machines here and love to see the technology develop.

In my spare time, I do 2D/3D modelling and gaming and a bit of sightseeing & hikes. Ask me what my current favourite game is!

EMMA

GRAPHIC DESIGNER & ENGRAVER

I chose the Double Twist Glass Award because they are uniquely hand-blown, no two are ever the same. With colours suspended within the glass, twisting and dancing together, I find myself admiring the award longer than others. As a Graphic Designer and Engraver for Apex, I get to be creative every day by designing layouts and see the creations come to fruition in real-time.

Outside of work, I like to immerse myself in music, film and TV, or going out for food adventures. Ask me about my favourite places to eat!

KENNETH

SENIOR ENGRAVER

I chose the Double Twist trophy as it is not a design I have come across before. With over 20 years in the trophy business it’s no often you come across something new. I enjoy coming up with custom designs for trophies using customers logos as a starting point to finish with a unique product in the end.

When I’m not at work you will most likely find me riding one of my bicycles. Ask me what my longest ride is!

JESS

ENGRAVER

Hi, I’m Jessica, but you can call me Jess. I chose one of our two tone custom Coffee Mugs, as I love a cup of tea any time of the day, and these mugs are a great way to display a favourite image. I am an engraver at Apex Trophies, and enjoy problem solving, designing customer’s layouts, as well as working with the various engraving technology. In my free time, I occasionally work on freelance graphic design projects, and creating props from my favourite video games for fun. Ask me about my crazy fur ball cat, Zila!

KIM

PART TIME ENGRAVER

I always liked the Grand Trophy Cup, it has a simple design and looks like an angel trophy, easy to hold and can be engraved in multiple ways, such as diamond engraved on the cup or base plate or heatpressed in colour. I enjoy assisting with engraving because it’s always amazed me how all designed awards and names come to life on the trophies.

For time off, I always go for long walks in nature and love drinking green tea. Ask me about my biggest hike!
