Pierre Spies, CEO of Tarsus Technologies, and Anton Herbst, CEO of ACT, have been appointed as executive directors of MB Technologies.
"Both Pierre and Anton are veterans of the South African IT industry," says Glenn Fullerton, CEO of MBT. "They have made significant contributions to the growth of the group over many years. Their insight into various sectors of the IT industry in which they have operated will further strengthen the MB Technologies main board. Their wealth of knowledge and experience will be well utilised to ensure optimisation of Group and operational strategies and will assist the Group in its future growth plans.
“Their appointments will not alter their day to day executive responsibilities for the running of their respective operations," Fullerton adds. "They will continue to hold and fulfil their current positions as chief executive officers.”
Leo Baxter, chairman of the group, also welcomed the appointments.
“The combination of their operational insights into dynamic market conditions in the IT distribution market, coupled with their abilities to distil their more than three decades worth of collective experience into a broader, strategic view of the market will be vital contributors to the success of the group,” Baxter says.
