Julie Cheetham
Co-founder and Managing Director

Hi, I'm Julie

I'm a skilled sustainability consultant with experience spanning over 20 years. My focus lies in sustainable development and business transformation. Having worked for a range of clients across the hospitality and corporate sectors, I drew from my diverse insights and was part of the initial group of thought leaders to found Weeva.

I'm a mom of teenage boys and when not at work, I enjoy the peaceful and natural surroundings on a farm in the Winelands of Southern Africa.

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge not to purchase any new clothing or accessories in 2024 (please expect repeat outfits).

Coffee order

My coffee order is tea! English breakfast or peppermint, please.

Lindsey Walter
Co-founder and Director

Hi, I'm Lindsey

I'm a seasoned professional in the dynamic world of tourism with over 20 years of experience and a mum to two incredible girls. From steering growth at Tswalu Kalahari Reserve to co-founding startups Niarra Travel and Weeva Limited, I've worn many hats. My educational journey led me through the Digital Marketing Institute, but it's my background in Psychology & Communications from the University of Johannesburg that is the real secret sauce in my journey.

I like to think of myself as a mixologist of sorts, blending the latest digital tricks with good old-fashioned human understanding. It's not about flashy moves; it's about making smart, data-driven decisions while keeping things sustainable. I'm just here, doing my thing—innovating, learning, and driving business with a touch of humility.

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge to keep it real by actively consuming less and making better, eco-aware purchasing decisions.

Coffee order

My day only starts after coffee - black, no sugar.

Hi, I'm James

I have over two decades of experience managing technical products and projects within the travel industry. I specialise in defining strategic technical roadmaps to support business growth and identifying opportunities in the travel technology space to meet present and future needs. Throughout my career, I’ve worked with a broad range of travel technology partners, providing solutions for Amadeus, easyJet holidays, as well as cruise, tour operators, travel agencies and airline alliances.

I hold a BSc in Computer Science from the University of Brighton, and recently completed an MBA Essentials course at LSE. I’ve just completed my final assignment for an MSc in Digital Transformation.

We're a family of 4. My two diverse daughters keep me busy between football practice and art classes. We all like Lego! Despite aging, I'm trying to pretend I can still take part in running events...it appears I'm getting slower!

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge to improve the insulation in my 1920’s house to reduce energy for heating and to consider the supply chain of products.

Coffee order

Hi, I'm Andrea

I'm a sustainability professional with extensive experience in hospitality. I've been working with hospitality clients to design and embed sustainability programmes and practices in their daily operations for many years.

In my previous career, I was a chartered accountant. My career change sent me back to University, ultimately earning me a doctorate in 2018. My research interest was in efficacy for sustainability among employees. I live in the most beautiful city in the world, Cape Town, and enjoy road biking, yoga and lazy weekends on the beach.

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge to install a solar PV system at home to reduce my electricity consumption.

Coffee order

Tea, 5 Roses, peanut-coloured, with half a sugar. I seem to be the only person in the world who doesn't drink coffee!

Hi, I'm Nwabisa

I'm part of the Weeva furniture - having been here from the start. The majority of my career has involved helping businesses implement solutions to ensure proper management of waste, carbon footprint, energy and water consumption as well as the facilitation of staff green education programmes to encourage climate-positive behavioral change and environmental appreciation.

I completed a Masters in Environmental Science with a focus on natural resource management in rural communities of the Eastern Cape.

When not working, I love baking and exploring local food markets/ thrift stores with family and friends.

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge to procure local: this includes my food, clothes and home items. If unsure about a product's origins, I always ask.

Coffee order

I prefer tea to coffee, any time of day, with a fresh lemon slice and a bit of honey. Delicious.

Hi, I'm Emma

I have a background in environmental science and sustainable city planning and have always been enthusiastic about working in sustainability and sustainable development. I joined Weeva as the first-ever intern a week after our launch.

I'm enamored by the thought that one day we could live in a world where public transport is the norm, people spend their days in nature soaking up the sun (and by people, I mean me of course) and where everyone has a veggie patch.

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge to remove beef from my diet entirely.

Coffee order

Flat-white with lots of sugar.

Andrew Ehmke
Product Manager
Andrew Ehmke
Product Manager

Hi, I'm Andrew

I've spent the entirety of my career learning the ins and outs of the travel industry (it's been a couple of years). During this time, I've created marketing and products that optimise ROI for companies by understanding consumer and B2B markets and identifying gaps and trends. Now it's time to create change!

I would describe myself as a full-time "Experience Nerd" and part-time golfer. I’m a sports nut – the diary revolves around what football and cricket is on TV. Go Liverpool!

I'm newly married and proud adoptive father of 7-year-old Schnauzer rescue, Winston.

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge to be "sustainably aware". Sustainability is broad, and I believe it requires a change of mindset to reconsider all of your daily habits.

Coffee order

Americano. HOT. Dash of milk. No sugar - look after yourself

Gulam Sawant
Head of Sales

Hi, I'm Gulam

My family is my driving force, and my career has been motivated by the need to serve others, add value in all I do and continually develop those around me.

I studied and qualified as a journalist but spent two decades in the health and fitness industry. Once the sustainability fire was lit in me, all roads led to Weeva, where I believe I can make a positive difference!

I strive to maintain a healthy balance and enjoy playing cricket, watching rugby and running... my Sunday mornings are for long runs!

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge to be consistent with waste reduction, recycling and choose local wherever possible.

Coffee order

A flat white to switch on, a tea to switch off.

Bronwyn Litkie
Business Development Specialist
Bronwyn Litkie
Business Development Specialist

Hi, I'm Bronwyn

I spent most of my 20's traveling the world in the hospitality sector. When I finally decided to ground my roots in Cape Town, South Africa it was an easy transition to move into sales and eventually sales within tourism, a field I am exceptionally passionate about. I do not consider myself a salesperson but rather someone who assists in building lasting relationships with my clients.

I am a certified beach bum, camper, nature lover, road tripper, and adventure seeker. I am happiest when I am planning my next adventure with my partner in crime and dogs.

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge to not use any single-use plastics, to lower our household energy consumption and to thrift shop my clothing wherever possible.

Coffee order

I'm a total tea addict - hot or cold and not fussy about color or flavor.

Clayton Vigne
Business Development Specialist
Clayton Vigne
Business Development Specialist

Hi, I'm Clayton

The majority of my career has been dedicated to sales, previously in the health and fitness industry. I've successfully managed sales teams on a national level through focused coaching and as a result of understanding target markets and demographics.

My motto in life: Do it now! Everything I have accomplished is the result of determination, perseverance and hard work. Building and maintaining lasting connections has become second nature to me - some call it the gift of the gab.

I'm a dad of three and enjoy spending time with my family over weekends. I'm a massive Premier League football fan, although watching and cheering for my kids next to the sports field takes preference.

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge to reduce our household waste through composting organic waste and diligent recycling.

Coffee order

Black coffee with two sugars is the only way!

Melissa De Smidt
Sales Administrator
Melissa De Smidt
Sales Administrator

Hi, I'm Melissa

I've worked in the Non-Profit industry for many years and it will always remain close to my heart. Before joining this team, Weeva’s core value of being kind resonated quite strongly with me.

I’ve been told that I keep to myself in meetings and come across as quiet, but rest assured if you get to know me, you’ll soon realise I have a dry sense of humor – my secret weapon to brighten anyone’s day (as well as my own).

I’m solo-parenting my perfect little man who is the light of my life. We love reading, dancing and singing together.

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge to always swop single-use coffee cups for my favorite Weeva eco-cup.

Coffee order

Definitely a dirty chai, no sugar.

I'm an accidental marketer, passionate about new brands and big missions. My career spans across various industries and geographies in B2C and B2B roles, including international contemporary art and the computer software sector. After leaving my previous employer, I vowed to myself that my next job would be purpose-led and within the sustainability space. Dream jobs do exist!

Marketing and Content Coordinator

Hi, I'm Juli

I’m an environmentalist who has spent most of her career working as a consultant. From agri, to social development and conservation, my “sustainability” consulting experience is broad. My academic background began as a microbiologist but life in the lab didn’t grip my heart.

I’m a mom of two girls and a westie (dog), who loves nature getaways with my family. Bush, beach, farms or mountains and I’m happiest.

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge to always endeavor to reduce my plastic waste further and make ethical choices regarding my consumption. I’m on a constant learning journey to be a conscious consumer.

Coffee order

Decaf Americano with cold milk does the trick.

Lauren Pitman

Digital Platforms Coordinator

Hi, I'm Lauren

I'm a warm, energetic realist who is keen to psychoanalyse anyone who will give me the chance.

I have a background in B2B SaaS marketing and have only recently plunged myself into the sustainability space. I love that a sustainable mindset is a creative mindset – you're learning to use what you have in new and innovative ways. After all, "waste is a failure of the imagination" – Douglas McMaster.

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge to say no to single-use coffee cups! I'm using my Weeva eco-cup instead. It gets me 10% off at coffee shops like Seattle Coffee – bang for my buck and I'm doing my bit for the planet.

Coffee order

Decaf cappuccino, normal milk – none of that soy bollocks.

I've been working in the travel industry for over 24 years, first in South Africa working for an Elephant Park and then based at a travel representation and PR agency in the UK since 2001.

I've been lucky to do the PR & Marketing for some incredible products over the years - from lodges like Sabi Sabi and Mala Mala to large hotel groups like Legacy, Newmark and Serena to the iconic Blue Train.

I live in West Sussex with my husband, 3 teenage boys (including identical twins) and 3 kitty cats. My happy place is on safari on an open vehicle in the bush.

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge to be more diligent about not buying over-packaged convenience foods and to teach my boys to be mindful of their impact on our planet.

Hi, I'm Dylan

I’m a passionate and experienced technical lead specialising in IT services and consulting. I was involved with Weeva’s very first pilot at the end of 2020 which led to me taking Weeva on at full capacity in 2022. My work involves the technical application of sustainability through the means of software development. I’ve been responsible for the facilitation and oversight of the architecture of the Weeva platform, ensuring security compliance and scalability.

I started in development at the tender age of 12 and entered the work environment as a Software Developer at EOH Microsoft Services directly after high school. I was the co-founder and Technical Director of Development house, Jack Studios which allowed me to help various large corporations with their technical needs. I've also assisted many start-ups get greenlit by providing technical solutions. On the side, I'm running Sploot, a pet parent-led community app.

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge to reduce my plastic usage and enforce employee wellness.

Hi, I'm Andre

My career has been spent mostly in the insurance industry where I was lucky enough to work with some complex maths. I spent some time in the FMCG industry. I also owned a SaaS company that provided software in the logistics sector.

I do enjoy a couple of hobbies, including scuba diving and building CNC machines. I love chemistry (nutty professor perhaps) and helped my wife develop the first aquarium additive products for her business.

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge to have earnest conversations with everyone about their small but important contribution to sustainability. I will keep on recycling and ensure that all consumables originate from sustainable sources.

During my career as a developer, I have worked on a wide range of software systems and made use of a variety of technology stacks. I joined Weeva's tech team as an intermediate developer in March 2023.

My creations aren't limited to code only. In my spare time, I'm an avid artist - oil being my preferred medium. I also enjoy collecting LEGO minifigures.

Software Developer

Hi, I'm Eugene

As a tech enthusiast and nature lover, my life is a blend of two worlds: the marvels of modern innovation and the serenity of the great outdoors. When I'm not immersed in the latest technological advancements or exploring the intricacies of business systems, you'll find me relishing moments with my family. As a devoted husband and father, quality time with loved ones is non-negotiable. Whether it's embarking on outdoor adventures, honing my skills in bow shooting sports, or venturing into the wild for a hunting expedition, I find solace and joy in these pursuits. Nature serves as both a playground and a teacher, offering lessons in resilience, patience, and harmony. Through my varied interests, I strive to strike a balance between the fast-paced digital realm and the timeless beauty of the natural world, all while cherishing the bonds that tie me to my family and passions.

Personal sustainability pledge

Reducing carbon emissions - By using solar electricity generation, and potentially going all in on electric vehicles

Hi, I'm Werner

I'm passionate about anything tech-related and immersing myself in nerd culture is one of my many joys. I started my career as a software developer as a junior at a company called Xpello, and after about a year I joined the Weeva team - what an opportunity it's been to expand my horizons!

When I'm not working or nerding out over the latest tech, you can find me writing poetry, playing video games or losing myself in my favorite music.

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge to use environmentally friendly materials in my daily routine and to recycle more.

Coffee order

I usually have a strong black coffee at home and an espresso shot at work.

Hi, I'm Irvin

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Statistics, the two main areas in which my expertise lies. I am a charismatic people person who also knows how to enjoy some much-needed time alone, although my two young sons don't allow much of that lately.

My family is the reason why I would much rather stay in than going out these days. My outlook on life has definitely changed in recent years - I believe it to be more tranquil and wholesome.

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge to live a more sustainable life by making the conscious decision to reduce my plastic waste by using only reusable and paper bags when shopping.

Hi, I'm Marno

I'm a Business Analyst during the week and avid adventurer on the weekends.

I spend most weekends immersing in, appreciating, and conserving natural environments. When I'm not working on business flows, you can find me scaling a mountain face or diving in rock pools. I prefer a hammock or a tent in the bush over a king-size bed in the concrete jungle.

In the office, I am infamous for my sweet tooth.

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge to only take part in low-impact travel such as camping.

Coffee order

I love my hot chocolate, sometimes I add a shot of espresso.

Randy Petersen
Customer Connect Champion

Hi, I’m Randy

I began my professional career at WNS, a prominent BPO, immediately after completing school as a Customer Service Advisor. I demonstrated exceptional performance, which led to a promotion to Team Leader within two years, at the age of 21. Despite facing numerous challenges, I excelled in this role largely due to my strong leadership skills, ability to motivate teams, and capacity to inspire others. Additionally, my friendly and approachable demeanour played a key role in fostering a positive work environment and driving team success.

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge to actively engage in learning and conducting thorough research to enhance my sustainability efforts. I will strive to minimise waste, recycle diligently, and prioritise reusable products. I commit to consuming responsibly, choosing products with minimal environmental impact, and supporting companies that prioritise sustainability. I will educate myself and others about the importance of environmental conservation.

I am more of an H2O kind of girl, but when having tea or coffee I do enjoy my tea with a touch of locally sourced honey from our bees or good, strong black coffee, nothing too fancy.

Hi, I'm Mags

I've worked in HR for 20 years within various industries - construction, retail and technology to name a few. Over the years, I've been so lucky to work with many amazing teams and people - Weeva certainly being one of them. My favorite part of the job: making meaningful connections and witnessing team members thrive when in the right working environment.

Outside of work, I love being a wife and mom to two youngsters (who definitely keep me busier than a full team of Weevas!).

Personal sustainability pledge

I pledge to eliminate single-use plastics and encourage my family to do the same by making them more aware of their waste.

Hi, I'm Monique

I have worked as an accountant in a few different industries, tourism being one of them. With every past experience, I have learned a lot and will continue to innovate and automate. I am excited to delve further into the travel industry and learn more about it. On the personal side, I'm an avid reader of mostly fantasy novels and enjoy the occasional hike or run. I have started playing squash and tennis but still very much a beginner. I enjoy being active but can also do with a day of just chilling with a book or binge watching a series.

Personal sustainability pledge

More walking less driving
