Project Manager

Garth is LightSpeed’s Project Manager. Garth was a project manager in KwaZulu-Natal for several years, before relocating to Cape Town. Project management at LightSpeed requires quick thinking and acting due to the fast paced Web Development environment, and Garth has greatly enjoyed this aspect of the work.

In his spare time Garth enjoys playing sport – trail-running, mountain biking and squash to name a few. You could also find him on his motorbike in far flung parts of the country.
