Dunja Rombouts

Dunja Rombouts
CEO

A multi-disciplined business owner with straightforward communication as her forte.

The idea for PICKLE comes from my journey and the drive to help people. I have always had the desire to help others having previously worked as a Firefighter in London, but this type of job eventually takes its toll on you. I decided I needed to do something different where I could still help people but in a different way. I discovered that becoming a locksmith is the quickest trade to learn, and they are in high demand in London. After a few weeks of learning I set up my website and was well on my way to building a new career. It became clear that trades would benefit from an app to help connect with customers. This is where PICKLE was born.
