Ernst Swart

Ernst Swart has been appointed communications and publicity manager for the Pendoring Advertising Awards.

A qualified copywriter (he graduated from the AAA School of Advertising in 2005) who started off his career at consumer magazines such as INSIG and TVPlus, he has made his mark in both advertising and media. He’s currently also publicity manager of the popular TV series Binneland on kykNET, and in the past two years has undertaken various other projects for the growing Afrikaans channel on DStv.

Swart will be replacing Wilma de Bruin who joined the Pendoring Awards as publicist at their inception in 1994, a role she filled intermittently for 14 years.

Pendoring general manager, Franette Klerck, says: “De Bruin’s departure leaves a huge void. She will be sorely missed, but at the same time we wish her all the best for the future. After serving the advertising and media industries for many years, she deserves the opportunity to enjoy more time with her family.”
