Core Team

Rhett TrickettManaging Director
As Managing Director, Rhett is in charge of getting the word out about Panacea Mobile and making sure that we stay competitive in the mobile market. Marketing, improving customer service & retention processes and product innovation are his game. When he’s not doing that he keeps himself busy with pseudo-hipster activities like cycling through Cape Town, coffee culture and music blogs.

Donald JacksonChief Technology Officer
Co-founder and CTO, Donald is the principle architect and engineer behind Panacea Mobile’s vSMSC technology. As a member of the Kannel Foundation board with more than 7 years SMS system development he’s a veteran in the global SMS industry and looks after all high-availability vSMSC deployments, system operations and consults on technical integrations for enterprises. In his spare minutes, Donald heads out to the greens for a round of golf or trawls Amazon.com to fine tune his electronic man cave.

Stefano SessaHead of International (outside of South Africa)
Co-founder of Panacea Mobile, Stefano has been responsible for growing the company to it’s size to date through securing several strategic deals. He manages day to day relationships with Panacea’s international suppliers and key stakeholders. When he’s not doing that he’s chasing rainstorms to row his kayak off cliffs and making biltong.
