Mickey is the newest member of the Golf in the Garden Route & South Africa Team.

The newlywed power couple tied the knot on 31 October 2015, and they are both equally passionate about what they do, both complimenting one another in their day to day operations in business and dealings with clients, so much so that their love and energy rub off on people aroud them.

Mickey worked in IT corporate for many years and he is well known for his ability to build long standing relationships with clients on both local and international level. Together with the fact that he has always been involved in marketing, and his obsession with digital & social media marketing platforms, he has a special way of applying valuable creative methods and concepts to systematically take brands to the next level.

Mickey is very gifted when it comes to music, Djing and being Master of Ceremonies. His 22 years in the industry has taken him all over South Africa and abroad to Italy, where he entertained and hosted events that cater for tens of thousands of people from all walks of life.

Given Mickey’s diverse background in many different industries, and experience across the board, he adds a different spin and approach to any and every idea in the business. If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you – we embrace change without diluting our focus and that is what is what makes our brand dynamic and powerful.

Mickey is level headed and aiming to create further opportunities of growth in both our local markets, as well as generating new relationships internationally.
