Meet The Founders

Alex Schmitt

Co-Owner & Founder

Tired of struggling financially and seeing many of his friends lose their jobs during the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020, Alexandre Schmitt set his mind to changing his life, as well as the lives of those around him. Determined to build an enterprise that would not only provide him with financial freedom but also offer opportunities to some of his closest friends, he partnered with best friend Cyle Obermeyer to create Parcel iT. Alex’s 20 years of experience in sales, retail, e-commerce development, Google and social marketing merged with Cyle’s extensive IT experience, and Parcel iT was born – an online solution for small to large online retailers. As Chief Executive Officer, Alex oversees the overall operations as well as handling new business and client meetings. Alex believes strongly that employees are a company’s support structure and that a company can only grow if the structure is strong. His goal is for Parcel iT to become South Africa’s number one e-commerce and online marketplace fulfilment centre for small to large B2C and B2B retailers.
