Fabrizia Degli Esposti - Director

Fabrizia Degli Esposti - Director

I‘m the one that started all this madness that is 20 Across and I love it. With over 15 years’ experience in PR and marketing, I always dreamed of one day owning my own agency. All that became a reality in 2015 and I haven‘t looked back since. I’ll try everything at least once, which is how I know I despise olives. I recently developed a mild obsession for Spanish mini-series, and don’t get me started on anything to do with Ancient Egypt unless you have a few hours to spare. Oh, and I‘m Domino’s mom...

Sarah Zollner - Account Manager

Sarah Zollner - Account Manager

I’m a lover of all things four-legged and furry, an avid wine-taster and a self-proclaimed professional at making chicken pie. My passion for South African music lead me to 20 Across in 2016 where I manage musicians, performers, DJs, singers, songwriters as well as radio personalities. I one day dream of living in the mountains with fibre internet, a pack of about 12 dogs and a hunky boyfriend to tend to my every wish.

Chay Cook - Account Manager

Chay Cook - Account Manager

I’m an all-round creative, enthusiastic and passionate person who is obsessed with all things pink, as well as small furry creatures such as cats and rabbits; despite my unfortunate allergy to them. Spontaneous adventure with family and friends is my game, and I my diverse playlists – ranging from Britney Spears to Deep Techno – keep me sane when I’m not binge-watching series and improving my cooking and baking skills. My ideal day would consist of waking up listening to the ocean, enjoying a buffet breakfast followed by poolside cocktails and a good book. My passion for trying out new things lead me to 20 Across in July 2016, and it has been an amazing journey since. Our clients are like family, and I love seeing them thrive to the best of their abilities. My love for social media, writing, being creative and staying ahead of social trends keeps everyone on their toes!

Lerato Maleswena - Account Manager

Lerato Maleswena - Account Manager

I’m an advocate of peace and consistent learning in every season, every environment and every chance given. I’m a creative with a heart for all things art, and you’ll find me living on the edge, chasing wisdom and sprinkling some PR fairy dust with the 20 Across team. On a much crazier note, because I am right-brained after all, I am a spontaneous adventurist who also dabbles in photography. My other skills include swapping people’s limbs and removing pimples on images using PhotoShop, walking long-distances, befriending bouncers and speaking terrible French. Although I only joined 20 Across in January 2018 I’m already very much part of the furniture…

Candice Burgess-Look - Senior Account Manager

Candice Burgess-Look - Senior Account Manager

Once upon a time, there was a young girl named Candice. She loved bubble-gum milkshakes, bell bottoms and singing into her hairbrush. She grew up to be the most adored Hollywood actress, who married the very hunky Leonardo Di Caprio.
Okay, that’s a lie. She’s a PR guru who tells stories...as you can tell. When I’m not busy cooking up magic for my clients, I can be found on stage performing. I just love creative expression. It’s the excitement of story-telling, whether it be for a brand I believe in, or a character on stage, that gets me out of bed every day.

Domino - Office Security

Domino - Office Security

I‘m the one that keeps all these ladies in check by making sure that all visitors to the 20 Across office are greeted with a curt yet friendly bark, lick and a sniff. I take my job as Office Security very seriously but when I’m not ensuring our safety I can be found at the park or the promenade making friends and driving my two-legged mom, Fabrizia, insane with my cuteness. I love my pet stuffed gorilla - aptly named Mr Gorilla - and I’m awfully fond of anything I can chew. Anything...

Marvin - Office Mascot

Marvin - Office Mascot

It‘s not easy being this sexy but someone in the office had to accept the title. Fabrizia and I have been working together since 2003 so it was only natural that I would join the 20 Across team as Head of Security and Sexiness, as well as Office Mascot. Some would say I’m full of hot air but I don‘t let others’ opinions get the better of me.
