Lethia Swart – Marketing Manager
After I matriculated at the Afrikaanse Hoër Meisieskool in 1989 I attended the University of Pretoria where I studied BA Literature Science.After realising that my field of interest was not necessarily my career path I spent almost two years abroad in Greece, Turkey and Israel. My passion for people and exceptional client service landed me in the Wedding and Events Industry where I was involved for the next 10 years. I studied Sales and Marketing at Damelin and specialised in Marketing. It was the year I finally found my passion!
I started with Mycomax>> in 2006 as Client Care and Marketing Manager and today I hold the post of Marketing Manager. I love the challenges and results that collide daily as there is never a dull moment! I believe it is one’s own responsibility to create a life that is worth living.

It is my job to oversee the in-house Software Development Life Cycle of Mycomax>> and to look after our client’s needs on a software level. My team and I strive to give the most generic and functional software possible. I love the challenges that go with software development and the problem solving that is required to achieve the best solutions for our valued customers.

What you make of your attitude, happiness and life is up to you.”
