Visionary
Entrepreneur
Developer
Business Architect & Marketer

Robby Stoller, whose incredible career in the South African footwear industry spans close on three decades, founded the Dangee Corporation in 2011. With a remarkable understanding of the intricacies of the industry and an eye for international market sway, business was booming from day one. Robby has played an integral part of some of the country’s most successful local men’s and ladies’ brands and, as such, he has extensive experience and expertise in the formation, design, marketing and selling of brands in the South African market. Seeing his potential, he was given the opportunity to take his leading men’s brand, Mazerata, from his previous business and go it alone. The rest, as they say, is history. Today, backed by the hard-won skills of getting a new business off the ground, Robby continually sets his sights on new business opportunities and brand expansion.

Jason Craft built Carken & Co from the ground up. Schooled by many years in wholesale, Jason’s keen acumen for the industry led him to launch out on his own with great success. Before stepping out, Jason ran South Africa’s most successful ladies’ fashion brand within another company. But his driving ambition couldn’t keep him there… He decided to take a leap and kick off his own brand, under his own company, backed by his extensive experience in the world of ladies’ fashion. With that, Miss Black was born. In the years that Miss Black has been in the market, it has become the fastest growing young ladies’ fashion footwear and bag label in South Africa and boasts the fastest growth of Facebook likes in ladies’ fashion footwear in the country. Jason is excited to keep pushing the boundaries when it comes to the fashion footwear industry in South Africa.
