Meet the Swanky Australia Team

Meet the Shopify Plus experts based in our Toowoomba office. This is your trusty Swanky Australia team!

Written By

Since the launch of Swanky Australia in November 2019, our Queensland-based team has been busy driving results for clients across the APAC region and beyond. Allow us to introduce you to our ecommerce experts down under and tell you more about the services they provide as one of the most trusted Shopify agencies in Australia.

What Shopify services does Swanky Australia deliver?

In late 2019, we decided to take our passion for ecommerce to the other side of the globe. The aim was to help Shopify continue to establish itself as the right solution for businesses across the APAC region; one of the fastest-growing markets in ecommerce. And so, Swanky Australia was born!

Since launching in Toowoomba, near Brisbane, the Swanky Australia team has enjoyed working alongside ambitious brands from across APAC and the US to elevate their ecommerce offerings. Our portfolio includes fast-growing subscription brand LiquorLoot, beauty and cosmetics empire Silk Oil of Morocco, new jewellery kid on the block Medley (a sister brand of global jewellery retailer Michael Hill), fashion retailer Goondiwindi Cotton, and homewares company Veneta Blinds.

Our Aussie experts offer end-to-end ecommerce support for clients, from web design to ongoing growth strategy:

So, without further ado, let’s get to know them a little better:

Our Brisbane Shopify Plus experts

Sean Clanchy | Managing Director | Australia

Having worked across a variety of industries – from Australian coal mining to advertising sales – Sean has assembled a unique set of skills that are well suited to the diversity of modern ecommerce.

In 2016, he launched an online camping store to fund his travels through Europe and, having recognised the capabilities of Shopify when using it for his own store, Sean joined Swanky later that year. Two years later Sean returned home to Australia and launched Swanky’s first international office in August of 2019.

He is now happy to be home and has bought a house, settled down with his partner Anna and welcomed the arrival of his first child, Will.


Jess Paroz | Head of Tech | Australia

Jess is a skilled designer with experience across a wide range of design disciplines including UX/UI, graphic and print design, logo and branding design, typography, sign-writing, screen-printing, and embroidery, just to name a few. 

After graduating from Griffith University with a Bachelor of Multimedia, she started her career as a front-end developer for Neto Ecommerce; at the start of the responsive web and mobile-first design movement. 

Jess’ understanding of the code framework behind a design helps her to create beautiful websites that also achieve exceptional user experience.

Kevin was responsible for managing several multi-disciplinary digital teams, delivering results for a wide range of international clients.

From launching Nintendo’s first UK online store, designing for brands such as Disney, Sony and Universal Studios, project managing international site roll outs and rebrands, all the way to directing photo shoots and launching a new UK fashion brand, Kevin certainly has a lot of knowledge to draw from.

Namira joined Swanky as a Junior Project Manager in early 2021 and with her growing experience, love of process and attention to detail, she has demonstrated she has more than outgrown “Junior”. 

Mature beyond her years, Namira has continued to impress our team and clients, and we look forward to seeing her take on more direct leadership responsibilities in the coming years.

Prior to joining Swanky, Namira worked in a non-profit organisation as a PR & Content Assistant. She completed her Bachelor of Communication from the University of Queensland. 

Namira is incredibly passionate about helping others reach their full potential.

Kalai joined the Australian Growth Accelerator team in 2021 as a Junior Paid Search Manager. Since joining, she has gone from strength to strength and we quickly realised that Kalai was constantly working to develop new skills and extend her knowledge. 

She has worked tirelessly to enhance her understanding of Google, Microsoft Bing and the Meta ads platforms and, in light of this, has recently been promoted to Paid Media Manager.

Outside of work, Kalai and her young family enjoy exploring South West Queensland, recently going on their first camping trip.

Esha Shah | Font-End Developer | Australia

Moving forward to 2023, Harrison has combined his love of surfing with a relocation to Australia, joining our Australian team as a Digital Strategist. He’s working remotely from Lennox Heads on the NSW coast – some would say he gets the best of both worlds!
