Classic Mavericks | Directors Meet the Team | Craig Shapiro


If I were a cocktail, I would probably be an Old Fashioned. I love class, sophistication and attention to detail.

Name: Craig Shapiro
Birthday: 26 November 1983
Birthplace: JHB
Years with co: Since the beginning
Position: Managing Director
  • If I had just won a million rand I would send my parents a check as a thank you present for raising me (probably not an easy job). I would donate a portion to a deserved community NGO or charity organisation, and then I would take some time out on a summer holiday, probably in the Amalfi Coast of Italy.
  • If I were a cocktail, I would probably be an Old Fashioned. I love class, sophistication and attention to detail.
  • My ultimate dream party experience would be with all my mates on Roman Abramovich’s Pelorus yacht (without him on it), cruising from a day party in Mykonos to Ibiza.
  • My favourite place to go out for a drink in South Africa? Late January on the beach in Plettenberg Bay.
  • My favourite song at the moment is based on Bheki Cele’s (the South African Police Commissioner) address to the SAPS to have their stomachs in and chests out. Google it, it is hilarious.
  • If I could live the life of any celebrity for a day I would probably choose to be that “footballer” that scores the winning goal in the 90th minute of an intense 0-0 game, to either win the World Cup or the Champions’ League Final.
  • If I had the privilege to have a drink with anyone in the world it would be William Wallace or Elbert Einstein.
  • My favourite LiquidChefs experience is being flown to London by a client, along with three of my colleagues. Our responsibilities included sampling some of the best bars in London. From a function perspective, it would have to be the function we did for Oprah Winfrey and all her friends.
  • How do I live life liquid? I love what I do, and I make sure that I live the values of the business each and every day. I try as much as possible to live a balanced lifestyle between work and my personal life.

I look after the LiquidChefs mobile business, so if you have feedback, comments or suggestions i would love to hear it.
