Founder 2005 to 2019

Email: info@mrralph.co.nz

Ralphie’s role started at the very beginning - apart from being the inspiration for the name! he always provided much-needed support along the way...

His personal characteristics - Being way too cool for school... knowing his own mind... stubborn about doing things right... and wise beyond his years, provided the business with the core values it prides itself on today!

He was always far too busy to be too involved in the day to day running of Mr Ralph - But rest assured he helped in all the key decisions, and you can trust that he knew far more than anyone else around here.

Update 8th August 2019
Can’t put it off any longer I am afraid! Just wanted to let everyone know that we lost our gorgeous boy Ralphie in February this year…. Apart from being the inspiration behind the brand name, he was our absolute darling.

It is getting way easier to laugh at what a dude he was. Ralph was a huge character, had a mind of his own and a swagger to match. Generally, well behaved (there was that one time at the team Christmas party when he slightly disgraced himself - He got overexcited and humped a few legs). His strong belief that he was in fact human, made him ambivalent to other furry creatures!!! Pipe and Slippers is how he liked it.
He was 14 years of age and was very spoilt, none of us will ever forget him
