Teddy Dakruz
General Manager

«I have spent over 25 years in the ICT industry at a senior management level both in Mauritius and abroad. Also, I joined Superdist in 2012 as General Manager. It took me slightly over a year to turn the loss-making company around, and steer it back on the path of sustainable profitable growth. It is reassuring to know that we belong to a large international group and that we can rely on its internal resources.»

Samuel Francis
Area Manager
CIS West Africa

«When I joined CIS Group in April 1995, I was motivated by the scope of the business and the African market.
My Job was to develop business in West Africa where you have around 11 different countries ranked between the poorest in the world.
During these 20 years despite civil wars, political instability, outbreaks, etc., a big improvement was made in this sector which triggered the growth of the African counties to 2 digits growing index.
From my side I established CIS affiliates in several countries, we widened our IT Portfolio to cover a large share of the market, we developed local skills and competencies, and we become the biggest IT Cluster in West Africa. »
