Meet The Team

Nicole D’Vaz, Supplier Partnership Manager

Nicole joined IndePet in January 2024 as Supplier Partnerships Manager.

She has 10 years’ experience with independent retailers, working in merchandise departments including roles varying from buying, to in-store POS set up, and planogramming.

Prior to IndePet, Nicole worked for an independent pharmacy group for 5 years with a focus on buying, developing and maintaining supplier relationships, while understanding the needs and wants of independent retailers.

Nicole is responsible for the day-to-day management of our supplier partners and quarterly catalogue program. She will also work with the broader team to drive our supplier strategy in the context of the business’ strategic goals.

Having had numerous pets throughout her life, Nicole is excited to jump into the pet industry and join IndePet while continuing her passion of supporting independent retail. She is committed to purposefully simplifying and making stock buying easier for our shareholders. She believes independent retailers are a vital essence to their local community and is a big advocate of supporting local and small businesses.

Outside of work, you’ll find Nicole shopping at design and craft markets, brunching, hiking in nature, enjoying a cold beverage with friends, or travelling.
