Executive Leadership Team

Mteto Nyati – Altron Group Chief Executive

Mteto Nyati is currently Chief Executive at Altron having joined the company in April 2017.

 

Mteto holds a BSc in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal. In 2004, he was named one of the Yale University's World Fellows on Global Leadership. 

 

Since joining Altron, Mteto’s priority has been to reposition the Altron group of companies for growth by driving the One Altron Strategy. The strategy which has begun to bear fruit for the company, is anchored in four pillars, i.e. revenue growth; improve profitability; transform the customer experience; and employee excellence.

 

Mteto and his leadership team have rallied the 8500-strong employee base around the One Altron Strategy, defining and introducing one purpose, one vision, one set of values and one goal. Key to the turnaround of Altron are two specific values amongst the set, i.e. collaboration across teams and being passionate about customers, employees and partners. The company promotes a new sales culture of cross-selling and working together across the different business units to deliver end-to-end holistic solutions to customers.

 

Under Mteto’s leadership, Altron has strengthened its governance structures by appointing independent directors with ICT experience. The company has delivered on its strategic commitments to dispose of non-ICT assets and reduce costs and operating expenses.

 

A former Chief Executive Officer of MTN SA, Mteto has held senior leadership and executive roles in multinational IT companies such as IBM and Microsoft. 

 

For Mteto, joining Altron, was an opportunity to make a meaningful impact on society through the company’s technology solutions and address challenges facing communities in South Africa and the continent,

 

He is the joint-winner of South Africa’s 2013 IT Personality of the Year.
 

Tim Jacobs – Altron Group Chief Financial Officer

Tim has more than 20 years commercial experience. Prior to joining Altron he worked at MultiChoice Africa Limited, part of the Naspers group, where he held the position of CFO before being promoted to Chief Executive Officer in 2014. 

 

Previously Tim also held CFO positions at Nampak Limited and Transaction Capital Limited. Tim is a qualified Chartered Accountant and holds a BCom degree in accounting, commercial law and business administration, as well as a H.Dip.Acc from Rhodes University. 
 

Andrew Holden – Altron Chief Operations Officer

Andrew has been with the Altron Group for over 20 years, with more than 15 of these at Director and Executive management level. Andrew began his career with Olivetti SA in 1994. In 1997 Olivetti was acquired by Wang Global and the South African operation was renamed Wang Global South Africa. In 1999 Wang Global was acquired by Getronics. In July of 2001 the South African subsidiary of Getronics was acquired by CS Holdings. Andrew continued to run the ITO Division but was soon elevated to Chief Operating Officer with responsibilities for all services including EUC, ITO, Training and Systems Integration. In November 2004 CS Holdings was acquired by Bytes Technology Group. 

 

In February 2010 after several management changes within Bytes, Andrew was asked to merge three disparate operations into one cohesive organisation delivering multiple solutions to a broad customer base. The three business, Bytes Outsource Services, Bytes Communication Systems and Intelleca, were merged into one organisation that was rebranded Bytes Connect. 

 


For the next three years Bytes Connect continued to grow under Andrew’s leadership, resulting in an organisation with over R600 million in revenue and more than 1200 employees. In November 2013 Bytes Technology Group and Allied Technologies Limited (Altech) were merged into one group - Altron TMT and Andrew was designated with the task of implementing a shared services model across the entire Altron TMT group. 

 

In February 2016, following the retirement of Rob Abraham as Chief Executive Officer of Bytes Technology Group, Andrew was appointed as successor to Rob as Altron Operations Executive: Information Technology (under which the Bytes Technology Group resides).
In April 2017, following the appointment of Mteto Nyati as the Chief Executive of Altron and the restructuring of the Altron Executive Committee, Andrew was appointed as Chief Operations Officer for the Altron group.
