- Management of Technology
- Management of Innovation
- Management of People
- Management of Systems

“The past two years have been challenging socially, economically, physically, emotionally, and mentally,” says a thrilled Pierre Bruwer, managing director of Netstar. “This achievement reaffirms that we are truly a values-based organisation that delivers on Altron’s purpose of delivering innovation that matters. We carry this recognition into 2022.
“We could not have pulled this off without strong collaboration across our teams, linking our customers, employees, partners, and communities in the way we operate; being honest and open, embracing our diversity and getting things done, while enjoying our work.”
Bruwer acknowledged the contribution of all Netstar staff to the winning performance. He says this recognition will be an added motivation for all at Netstar to continue protecting and connecting their customers, their families, colleagues, and their valued assets.
Commenting on Netstar’s performance, Victor Litshani, tt100 Project Manager says: “tt100 is truly proud of the success Netstar has achieved in the 2021 annual awards and the professionalism that the team holds despite a great change in the market, both in the technology and human sphere. It’s truly great to see an organisation that is still able to be agile and cooperative in holding such a level of competitive edge.”
