Our story

Born seven years apart, Nik and Cheryl are the brother and sister team behind Shockwave. Born into a family of entrepreneurs, their parents and grandparents were involved in their own businesses and as kids, working in the family business was their playground. In between serving customers, the ever curious children would scurry off to play hide and seek. What they didn’t know at the time is that their bond would see the two uniting in the future to help everyday Australian business owners who believe in a common set of philosophies.

At just 13, Nik was already involved in his first joint venture with his father, running a packing and operations business after school. This ignited the fire in his belly to run a business and he chose to pursue this path after graduating from high school as opposed to going to medical school as his grandfather hoped. As for Cheryl, her apprenticeship began at the tender age of 11 when she would tag along with her older brother, learning everything about increasing sales, upselling and cross-selling. When the time came, unlike Nik, Cheryl chose to study medicine and credits becoming a doctor for her thick skin and understanding of what makes people tick and how to manage people. Fast-forward many years and their passion for business and helping others sees Nik and Cheryl working together again – learn more about why they started Shockwave.
