Schmiltz officially started business on 1 March 2018.
In 2017 Schmiltz Marketing started out as a dream shared amongst three creative individuals with the same ideas about establishing an advertising company built on mutual experience, knowledge and skills obtained over more than 30 years collectively.
What made the dream so easy to turn into reality, was the fact that we have always strived towards the same goals with the same integrity.
Ruth Schultz completed her Honours degree in Journalism at the North-West University in Potchefstroom in 2007. She started her career as editor and project manager at Infoworks Media Publishing, an independent publishing and marketing company in Klerksdorp (North West), established in 2001. After quickly staking her claim in the field of contract publishing, Ruth realised that her true calling is at the frontline of the action, as a marketer of advertising space. This is the playing field she has come to love and where she truly excels in.
In 2012 Ruth relocated to the Johannesburg area where she started working as a marketing specialist for Infoworks; building up a good client base in the City of Gold. In 2017 Ruth Schultz, Johan Smit and Trudie Smit registered Schmiltz Marketing (Pty) Ltd as a new advertising company with Ruth Schultz as the managing director and a shareholder together with Johan and Trudie residing in Infoworks.
