MEET THE TEAM
Garth Wolff - Founder and CEO eTravel Group
A natural leader best suited to running his own business, Garth was the pioneer of the Independent Travel Company model in South Africa. His inspired and organised leadership has ensured the company remains the largest and most successful in its field empowering over 200 ITC’s (Independent Travel Companies).
His promise to the group is to keep eTravel a privately owned company allowing for flexibility and uniqueness in the model and is 100% dedicated to this vision. His core values revolve around the people that make eTravel what it is today. He is a goal setter and go getter who believes that ‘If you don’t make a difference in this world then you don’t matter”.
When Garth is not working he indulges in his passion for flying his Cessna 182 to various bushveld destinations as he has a true love for both flying and the bush! He also loves sun and sea destinations hence is an avid fan of what South Africa has to offer.
“Given the current challenges in SA we still live in the best country in the world so we all need to play our part, remain positive and make a difference to those less fortunate around us! We also need to be very aware of the pressures on wildlife so that we can plough some of our profits back into wildlife to ensure that our grandchildren can see the beauty which we take for granted daily!”
Tammy Hunt - Managing Director
Overseeing both the Inland and Coastal operations of eTravel , as well as IT, advertising, Preferred Partners and ITC Relations, Tammy’s organizational and leadership skills have helped earn eTravel a reputation of integrity, honesty and efficiency among ITC members and travel partners.
Before joining eTravel in 2003, Tammy owned and managed an eTravel ITC ‘Time T.O. Travel’ which allows her to understand the requirements and needs not only from the Head Office but from the ITC perspective as well.
She is married to Scarbra and both are blessed with two beautiful daughters – Tyler and Olivia. Tammy and her family love spending their time outdoors but in particular any destination with the best of both world … “sun and sea”
Ruan van Niekerk, Finance Director
I joined the eTravel family in October 2012 as the Management Accountant – previously I was employed by Roelcor Meat Wholesalers and also spent 2 years abroad working for a German oil trading company based in London.
I enjoy being outdoors and playing sports as well as spending quality time with my wife, son, friends and extended family.
I have a young son who keeps us busy, humble and allows me to have a balanced life between working hard and enjoying the important things outside of the professional world!
Travel is a major passion of mine – I love spending time in the “bush” and experiencing different cultures & places.
My top destinations visited are the Kruger, Kgalagadi, Mauritius and Amsterdam – the next adventure hopefully Botswana!
Truda Louw, Travel Manager
I joined the eTravel family in October 2014 after having held several retail travel positions over a period of 15 years. My passion is travel and working with people. I am hard working and a loyal team player. I believe that balance in life is very important, and I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and my two furry kids. My motto in life is live, love and laugh, and I try to live each day to its fullest!
Maree Adkins - eHolidays Manager
My 17 years’ travel industry experience has ensured wide exposure to a range of destinations and products. I’ve worked at Beachcomber Tours and Thompsons Tours, and started with eHolidays eight years’ ago. My favourite local product is Thornybush, which offers great value for money and a wonderful wildlife experience. When it comes to the beach however, it’s Seychelles’ untouched beauty and romance that has captured my heart.
