Bytes division gets new CEO

Read time 1min 20sec

Hennie du Plessis has been appointed CEO of Bytes Document Solutions, a division of Bytes Technology Group (BTG).

He replaced previous MD Rob Abraham, who is now CEO of BTG.

Due to restructuring of the company, Du Plessis takes over as CEO rather than MD. He now has three MDs who report to him, each heading up an autonomous business that was created by the company.

Du Plessis was MD of Bytes Healthcare Solutions and had been with the company for a decade, before he accepted this position.

He will spend the first few months familiarising himself with the group's goals, structure and strategy, Du Plessis notes.

Other changes

Along with the appointment of Du Plessis, Bytes Document Solutions has undergone a restructure, as it aims to grow market share and capitalise on resurgent market conditions, says marketing director Tanya Moodley.

Three autonomous businesses have been created, each with its own MD, who will report to Du Plessis, she adds.

There will be a new Xerox division, headed by divisional MD Rabin Ram; NOR Paper, headed by Raymond Blake, which was acquired in 2008 and now represents all of the group's paper interests; and LaserCom, formerly Laser Facilities, headed by Konni Hoferichter, says the company.

Bytes Document Solutions is a division of Bytes Technology Group South Africa, owned by Altron, with Kagiso Trust Investments as its empowerment partner.

It is an authorised Xerox distributor to 27 sub-Saharan countries.
