Born and raised on a 30-acre farm in Knoppieslaagte near Johannesburg, South Africa, Dean Levitt moved to the US in 1999 with his brother Gary Levitt (Mad Mimi's CEO) to pursue a career in music. While trying to promote their music production company, the Levitt brothers had an idea that would become Mad Mimi, a powerful email marketing service with more than 180K customers. Since Mad Mimi's inception, Dean has nurtured its culture, changing customers into fans for organic, viral growth. Dean lives in Honolulu, Hawaii.
