You’ll find that the gifts in our Cool Stuff Gift Store are a little geeky,
sometimes off-the-wall, but we think that's partly what we are about too. We
call it passion!
We came up with the name CoolStuffExpress since everytime we demonstrated a
new product to one of our customers they always said "Wow - that's really
cool Stuff! When can I get some for my store?” And of course, our fast shipping
and customer service that we are very proud of and has been a contributor to
our continued growth.

We have a lot of fun here at CoolStuffExpress and work with a great group of
people in the process.

Connie. Operations Manager. Once a high powered
executive in the home construction business, she brings a wealth of savvy
talents to Cool Stuff Express by making us more efficient, productive, keeps us
from hanging out by the water cooler and while makes sure we’re having fun at
the same time. Connie keeps us all on our toes by streamlining our
fulfillment, purchasing, and operations by constantly improving our processes.
From Connie’s commitment to excellence, we have been awarded Preferred Supplier
Status from many of our customers. We just can’t say enough about how
much we appreciate her commitment to our customers. A.K.A. - The Rabbit. Runs fast and low to the ground.
Tim. Product Manager. Comes from one of the
most widely known companies that have one of the most famous rodents with the
first name of Mickey. Constantly on the pursuit for new, cool, weird, or
just plain fun stuff. Does a lot of shaking hands, kissing babies, and
posing for photo opportunities. Seriously, you’ll see him on the road
traveling to trade shows, evaluating new products, and making improvements in
our products here at Cool Stuff Express. Often disappears when the lunch check comes.
Steve. Warehouse Manager. With the amount of
product that flows in and out of our warehouses, Steve makes sure that the
right product is in the right place at the right time. Steve comes from
one of the largest logistics supply companies in the world. Steve joined
the Cool Stuff Express team to make sure that our orders get to you quickly and
without error. Also likes to put lines on the floor in the warehouses and tells everyone
what goes there.
Lisa. Customer Service Manager - In the world of
ecommerce, having a real person on the phone to answer product, shipping,
create orders is the exception. It’s Lisa’s commitment to customer
service and treating each and every one of our customers with the appreciation
and respect that have made us so famous for.
Rich. Information Technology Manager.
Barcodes, Scanners, HTML, Network servers, oh my. Hey - now were
talking. Rich really makes a lot of things happen here by making sure our
servers are operating at peak performance, all systems are go, and keeps
everything that runs on electricity operational and spinning the electric
company meter as fast as possible. He keeps CoolStuffExpress operational
24 hours a day. Rich and his “network minions” are the best at what they
do. All CoolStuffExpress staff starts their morning chant with “Rich
is quick and nimble on his toes, my respect for Rich continually grows”.
He wrote that. Rich and his team are “simply the best”.
Along with the Management Team we have a great staff of 16
additional players that constantly add to our mission and goals.
We appreciate every contribution from the CoolStuffExpress Team. You'll
often find us together after hours playing softball or "consuming"
mass quantities while we discuss the latest coolest thing we discovered.
