Wilhelmina Ligthart, Managing Director & Founder
Wilhelmina brings with her over 35 years of international trade experience and currently works closely with exporters globally.
Wilhelmina’s background is in international trade in various capacities as an importer, exporter and freight forwarder.
Wilhelmina continues to be an exporter and an international trade consultant. Her consultancy business offers specialised freight forwarding/services, advice in setting up standard operating procedures for import and export, and assistance in researching clients' documentary and logistical requirements.
"Documentation is a vital part of sales, and especially export sales; the documents are not only the instrument for getting paid but also the instrument by which the buyer is able to access their goods. All countries have import regulations and the incoming consignments must pass through the local customs authorities as well as any governing industry bodies. To get through this process importing countries rely on the documents provided by the exporting country to verify compliance with local regulations."
Swann Romero, Global Business Development Manager
Swann Romero is a global business development manager who partners with export companies from all over the world, allowing them to reduce costs and save time by processing their export documents online.
Swann studied marketing and international business in France and quickly found work in fast, busy environments. He knows all too well the time and money constraints on small-business exporters, and he's excited to bring his skills to ITDocs clients.
After spending several years as a logistics coordinator responsible for efficiency, communication with clients and the resolution of transportation issues for high profile firms in both Europe and in the U.S., Swann knows what truly drives success and growth–it’s not mastering the marketing flavour of the week, but connecting with the people you’re trying to help.
In addition to his professional career, Swann likes music, poker and travel. Passionate about Australia, his move to Melbourne was a natural fit.
