Bytes Managed Solutions, part of JSE-listed Allied Electronics (Altron), has appointed Hardus Hurter as sales manager.
Hurter will be instrumental in accelerating sales performance for the services led, software driven and hardware enabled organisation which markets, supports and maintains enterprise-wide, end-to-end technology solutions and related services.

His most recent experience was managing a group of SME companies to help them expand their service offerings portfolio and gain access to new markets.
“Hardus brings to Bytes a wealth of experience and knowledge in sales leadership capabilities in ICT with particular strengths in the areas of Managed Services and Africa, both of which are key pillars for our growth engine,” said Alan Anderson, Bytes Managed Solutions Sales and Business Development Executive. “At Bytes, he will ensure continued growth in existing markets while expanding into new markets and territories.”
