Zak Edwards
Founder and Managing Director at Ltd

It’s a rare occurrence to see the Founder and Managing Director of a successful business beside a goat whilst sat at his office desk. But nothing is far from out of the ordinary with gadgets and gifts e-retail business leader of, Zak Edwards.

The Entrepreneur, along with his family, set up the ecommerce business in 2000, which has since established itself as a dependable, nationally loved retailer for finding fantastic gifts. Shipping up to 5000 orders daily across the globe, Prezzybox are one of the leading lights in the online gift space. 

Zak has developed a flexible, non-hierarchical workplace of over twenty staff members, claiming his want to be “the thickest person in the room” when nominated for the Guardian's Small Business Leader award in 2014. His triumphs stem from empowering his staff and encouraging fun and creativity within the company and its products, valuing happiness above everything else for both staff and customers alike.

His passionate and enthusiastic approach has publicised Prezzybox within many media outlets including the McDonalds Monopoly Campaign, as well as appearances on Bloomberg, CNBC, ITV This Morning, and the Apprentice Final as part of their panel of advisers, plus lots of appearance on BBC Radio and daily nationals. The ambition to explore new initiatives has even seen the home-grown business introduce a new scheme for schools called Learn2Earn, which rewards pupils’ educational achievements and assists teachers in motivational learning.

Zak's drive, vision and compassion has pulled through tougher times during the recession as he has developed a multi-million business from the beginnings of a barely furnished, borrowed office with not even a phone to hand, and finally, made Prezzybox the vibrant, fun and extraordinary company it is today.
