Market Director & CVO

Daniel Giannone


Originally from the small Village of Rosemont, Illinois, Danny adopted the love for hockey through Chicago Wolves games he attended with his father during his childhood. That love blossomed into two State Championships and a National Championship. Sadly he suffered a career ending injury that left him at a fork in the road. Moving forward in his life he used that same competitive drive and leadership to build Simba Sales inc. Opening Simba Sales inc. in 2017 he was determined to create a business his grandparents and family would be proud of. Since then he has impacted hundreds of lives over the past few years and continues to change and evolve markets and clients he takes on. His passions include his dog CoCo and Enzo, who you may find wandering the office, his grandparents, and most importantly his team in which none of what we have accomplished would be possible. When he isn't working you will see him playing roller hockey, working out, or hosting a BBQ at the house for his team!


Jessie Hindes

Originally born in Rota, Spain, Jessie grew up in a small farm town in Southwest Missouri. After high school she took the leap and moved to Nashville, Tennessee where she attended college at Middle Tennessee State University. In 2017 she received her Bachelors for Fashion Merchandising. After graduating Jessie quickly decided that she wanted to be her own boss and own a boutique, but needed experience in sales, marketing and managing a small business. She found herself at Simba Sales where she started as a sales representative and found a love for leadership. Jessie has been with the company for 2 years and is now our brand manager, overseeing all of our social media and website. She also manages her own brand management business working closely with our partners. Along with brand management Jessie works alongside Brittany with recruiting. She still plans to own a small boutique.

Director of Toy Durability and

Narrator of CoCo's Corner!

CoCo - AKA CoCo Raptor


Originally saved by Danny from a shelter in Cincinnati, Ohio, Coco has a very loving and active personality. Even though her main role at the company is testing the durability of all the toys the team brings her she also chips in to make sure everyone has a smile on their faces. Her passions include whining while dads gone, learning new tricks, any sort of food, and sprinting around the office for 2 minutes before taking a nap!

2nd In Command Of Toy Durability

Enzo- AKA Bubba

Adopted by Danny and Jessie, Enzo is a HIGH energy German Shepard. His hobbies typically involve bugging his sister Coco and also double checking the toy durability after Coco. He loves greeting all of his friends at work and all the tummy scratches that they give him. His deep bark may startle some, but his sweet kisses make everyone feel so loved and welcomed!
