Collin Govender

Managing director of Altron Karabina and Altron Systems Integration

Collin Govender is managing director of Altron Karabina and Altron Systems Integration, having first joined Altron as group executive for shared services.

Prior to joining the Altron Group, Govender was vice-president for sales and service management at T-Systems. Instead of following a conventional route into enterprise IT, he entered the workforce with a Durban-based logistics company, where he was tasked with everything from running cables, building networks and developing code. He later moved to Johannesburg, where he spent 17 years at T-Systems, a German multinational IT services and consulting company.

Looking ahead, Govender is focused on connecting individuals with their purpose in the new digital environment – and finding ways to align purpose with sustainable business practices.
