We may be partial, but we think the Showpig.com team is one of the best in the country. With that said it’s high time we introduce ourselves, for those of you who haven’t met us. Over the next few weeks, we’re going to introduce our team members one-by-one, so you can learn more about those behind the brand. We hope that you enjoy these glimpses of the folks running auctions, answering phones and sending you emails. Remember, if you want to learn more about the staff member helping you, you can always visit the Meet the Team page at: https://showpig.com/meet-the-team/.
