Hi, We’re Ecell Global
Every day, our hardworking execs are buried in spreadsheets, pacing the floor or hopping on planes to bring customers the quality products they expect. Learn more about the brilliant brains behind Ecell Global.
Tim Celikkol // Director & Co-Founder Date Joined Ecell Global: 2000
Tim is the one who started it all. As a university student, Tim began selling mobile cases and accessories in a tiny kiosk at Preston Market in the year 2000. Whatever he did not sell over those weekends at the market he would then sell on eBay. Obviously, that strategy of selling excess inventory online paid off. Under Tim’s leadership, Head Case is now one the top 10 global sellers on Ebay, and one of the largest sellers of custom designed phone cases in the world. Today, Tim extends his legacy by focusing on Head Case’s online market place listings and ensuring all our customers are 100% satisfied. Through his guidance, Head Case recently surpassed 3 million Head Case sales.
Cem Celikkol // CEO & Co-Founder Date Joined Ecell Global: 2005
Cem is the CEO, Co-Founder and man in charge of Ecell Global’s Head Case brand. When this all-around nice guy isn’t busy globe-trotting with his two brothers/co-founders, he’s keeping this company thriving. In just a few short years, Cem has overseen the launch of the Head Case brand, was the creator of our “Just In Time” production process, has helped create the impressive, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in the Philippines, and has set up offices all over the world. In other words, by the time we mortals have poured our morning coffee, he’s probably already accomplished 6 major things for the day. We’d be jealous if we weren’t so impressed.
Murat Celikkol //Director & Co-Founder Date Joined Ecell Global: 2005
While most people like to keep family out of their business, Murat loves to work with co-founders Cem and Tim everyday. When he’s not planning the company’s next big move with his brothers, Murat is busy continuing improvements on Ecell Global processes and daily operations. Murat enjoys that his Director position takes him around the world on company business, which leads to all sorts of exciting adventures. In fact, his fondest memory pertains to when he arrived in China for the first time. There, he had to establish a new company branch without speaking the language or having a deep understanding the culture and business environment. Luckily, Murat didn’t have to speak Chinese to be able to bond with his new team over one of his main interests – cool technology! The rest is history.
Douglas White // CMO (Chief Marketing Officer) Date Joined Ecell Global: 2012
Doug White has more than 20 years of marketing experience under his belt, working with clients like AOL, Coke, Disney, General Motors, and other famous global brands. Today, he brings his infinite marketing wisdom to Ecell Global as its Chief Marketing Officer. Since joining the company in 2012, Doug has helped open our offices in both Orlando and Los Angeles in order to better serve U.S.-based customers. He has also spearheaded the brand strategy and messaging for Head Case, and helped translate them into a cool, user-friendly and powerful ecommerce presence. Not only has he managed to impress his wife Becky with these accomplishments, but our entire team as well. We look forward to seeing how Doug continually evolves the Ecell Global and Head Case brands.
Jon Rice // CFO (Chief Financial Officer) Date Joined Ecell Global: 2012
As Ecell Global’s Chief Financial Officer, Jon performs the day-to-day macro and micro financial management of our ever-expanding multinational company. He also helped introduce our “Just In Time” order management - the process to ensure Head Case Designs orders are received, manufactured and shipped out within 24 hours. So around here, he’s kind of a big deal. According to Jon, the things he loves most about working at Ecell Global include: the candid open atmosphere, the ability to drive change, and being able to eat outside and go for a run straight from the office.
Ann Peralta // Customer Service and Sales Fulfillment Manager Date Joined Ecell Global: 2008
Ann, our animal-loving, coffee-drinking Customer Service and Sales Fulfillment Manager, is an integral part of our team. Every day, she does a dizzying amount of tasks, including taking care of our customer’s requests, and ensuring that orders are delivered on time as promised. When asked what she enjoys most about working at Ecell Global, Ann says “I like the people I work with. You have a chance to make a difference here, and our directors give us the freedom to manage our teams to reach our goals.” We couldn’t think of a higher compliment, and look forward to working with her for years to come!
Drew Ramos // Head of IT Date Joined Ecell Global: 2009
Drew Ramos is a man of few words and a whole lot of numbers – mostly ones and zeros, actually. As Head of IT at Ecell Global, Drew’s primary responsibility lies in defining, creating and maintaining the company’s internal software and tools. Drew also ensures that all Ecell Global product listings and orders are transacted correctly between our third party partners like Amazon and eBay. With Ecell positioned as one of the top sellers on each of these sites, Drew’s responsibilities in these areas are extremely important. When Drew’s not busy doing computer stuff, you might find him on an adventure somewhere abroad. But even then, he’ll most likely be online.
Anthony 'ANT' Faulder // UK and Overseas Manager Date Joined Ecell Global: 2008
ANT is the UK-based Overseas Manager for Ecell Global. In addition to his superior ability to run our overseas offices smoothly and efficiently, he also possesses a quality that is most rare amongst Englishmen: his appreciation for American football. Yes, this Brit not only roots for his Blackburn Rovers at home, but also shares a love for the New England Patriots. Perhaps it’s ANT’s ability to balance seemingly opposite qualities that makes him so easy to work with; he’s both a soccer fan and a football fan, a humble yet assertive leader, a colleague and a friend. All these skills have enabled ANT to work his way up through the company over the years, and we can safely say the sky’s the limit for him. Even if he did tell us “darts” is also a favorite sport.
Dax Hoogerwerf // UK Manager Date Joined Ecell Global: 2008
Dax is many things: a member of the Head Case family, an amazing manager, and a Liverpool Football Club fanatic. As one of the original members of the Ecell Global team, he’s witnessed a small family company grow in to an exciting, worldwide operation. Today, he keeps everything running smoothly and manages a lucky team in the UK. When he’s not improving processes to make both our employees’ and customers’ lives better, Dax can be found on the football field or with his wife and adorable daughter.
Maria Bettina Pineda // Creative Manager Date Joined Ecell Global: 2012
Bea manages everything design related - from up-to-date trends, licensed design approvals to marketing game plans. Her deep appreciation for fashion is what made her so dedicated to anything that involves colours and shapes! Bea currently handles an outstanding team of designers whose role is to produce top quality and spot on designs for our target market. For her, the experience to work with amazing people and top brands is a dream come true - imagine seeing your favorite music bands, tv series come to life in phone cases, how brilliant is that?!
Joren Paras // Head of Production Date Joined Ecell Global: 2012
Armed with years of experience in printing & advertising, Joren helped build the printing team in the Philippines from the ground up and also helped in refining and establishing the production team in the US and UK. Apart from managing the entire production, Joren is also heading the product research and development and has lead a lot of initiatives in ensuring you get your phone cases on time and in excellent quality. Being an artist himself and former designer of the Creative Team, he also has his share of bestselling Head Case designs prior to him fully joining the Production Team.
Joanna Rose Vitug // Pre and Post Printing Manager Date Joined Ecell Global: 2011
Jae's bubbly pesonality and sense of humor always keep the working environment more relaxed and helps maintain the energy of her team to do a better job when days are extra busy. Prior to her taking over the management of Pre and Post Printing team, Jae started a humble beginning as one of the entry level artists of Ecell's Creative Team. When the company needed people to support the production in preparing cases for printing, she volunteered without hesitation. While most people would take pre-printing task as a menial job, Jae understood the importance of this in production, putting her heart in ensuring the quality of her output. Her hard work and dedication was noticed by the management, eventually entrusting her to take over the entire Pre and Post Printing team.
