Artec Computer Systems (Pty) Ltd. has announced the appointment of Patrick Maddox as MD of the company, while founder and outgoing MD, Andrew Tucker, has assumed the role of CEO. This, the company says, is in line with an increasing focus on medium and large enterprises.
"Since our inception in 1992, Artec has consistently grown in profitability, as well as in terms of the markets we address. Having developed solution offerings targeted at the corporate arena, the company has been restructured to allow us to focus on enterprise clients. With this structure, Artec is optimally positioned to deliver the level of technology as well as expertise demanded by top corporations," comments Tucker.
"In today's economy, you can never overestimate the value that trust brings to a partnership. Artec provides clients with a valuable guide on available technologies, and constructive insight into how technology can help to drive business," he says.
In his capacity as MD, according to the company, Maddox will focus closely on the day-to-day running of Artec, as well as the management of key client relationships. Artec says that, having considerable business and financial management experience, Maddox will improve the company's human resource management abilities, and contribute to the determination and execution of Artec's strategic direction.
"While Artec has, to date, predominantly focused on the medium sector of the market, we are strategically repositioned to offer services targeted at the enterprise, including our managed services provision and mobility offerings. It is my intention to help drive Artec's growth into this market with a combination of technical excellence and sound business logic," says Maddox.
The company notes that, as CEO, Tucker will continue to provide the driving entrepreneurial force behind the company he founded. He says his role is to guide the company's strategic direction, inspire his team members and lead by example.
