Our Team

Charlene Mckenzie

Chief Executive Officer

Charlene McKenzie is the absolute driving force behind Tixsa. Charlene has been in the entertainment industry since the early 90’s. Charlene spent 16 years running her own highly regarded music venue in Pretoria before joining Tixsa, building a great reputation with producers, promoters, artists and clients. What Charlene loves most about using Tixsa is the reliable, user friendly online system and software, and the way Tixsa deals with their clients. She especially loved the ability to manage her own loading of events and building a database where she “owned her audience”. Her focus at Tixsa is helping clients with events; from planning, marketing, ticketing to execution. She always strives to exceed customer expectations. What Charlene loves most about her job is becoming a part of her clients events and becoming a little “working family”. When she is not busy being our Tixsa-superwoman, you might just find her painting or somewhere relaxing with her nose buried in a a book. She is also a bit of a mountain biking junkie. Charlene personally loves attending anything arty and creative:  from the ballet  and opera, to alternative poetry readings and live music. She has a soft spot for Blues, Jazz and Rock ‘n Roll. With Charlene’s incredible gift to conquer any problem create synergy among the people surrounding her, it’s no wonder her favorite quote is one from Rod McKuen:

“Be aware then that tomorrow is only tomorrow. There is nothing to fear except the coming of another day. But two against a winter morning are sure to claim one more victory over chance and trouble.”
