JSE-listed Allied Electronics Corporation Limited (Altron) has appointed Collin Govender and Zipporah Maubane as group executive: shared services and group executive: marketing, PR and corporate communications, respectively.
Govender was previously VP for sales and service management at T-Systems and during his 17 years with the group he held a number of senior executive positions.
His appointment gives effect to Altron’s stated intent to develop and implement a shared services model across the Altron group. “To this end, Govender will drive the operating model to ensure efficiencies, cost savings, reduced support service costs and improved alignment,” Altron said.
Govender studied BSc Computer Science at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, and completed an MDP at Unisa and an executive programme from Harvard Business School.
Maubane was formerly the head of communications and sustainability for Coca-Cola, overseeing 18 southern and east African markets over the past six years. Prior to joining Coca-Cola, she was the brand marketing manager for Sasol Oil.
Maubane holds a BA degree from the University of Limpopo, and brings more than 20 years’ experience in brand marketing and communications to her new position.
