The Team

Meet the Moon Ape Lab Core Team - 11 experienced professionals with one vision

Queen - Project Lead / CEO

Born in Cape Town, but raised in the UK, Queen has a wealth of experience to draw on. She holds an impressive track record and was a successful business leader in the Medical Devices Industry. During her 20 year tenure, she was a top performing rep who went on to manage the sales organisations of many multi-million dollar, blue-chip companies. Well suited to problem solving, she took on teams that lacked structure, process or motivation - turning them into high performing, and loyal, teams. With an innate ability to multitask and facilitate the coordination of cross team outcomes, Queen is able to manage and delegate the workload to ensure that Moon Ape Lab is always fluid and moving in the right direction. In 2018 Queen hung up her suit and heels to pursue new ventures. In her free time she enjoys the outdoors, music, travelling and playing poker. 
Time is her most valuable asset
