Awards

Group IT: Mark of Excellence Award 2017 from Standard Bank - Group IT

The annual Mark of Excellence Awards is a prestigious celebration of both individuals and teams who have helped Group IT move Standard Bank forward. I received the Mark of Excellence Award for my work on the creation and implementation of the Group Omni-Channel architecture. I was recognised for the way I brought together senior stakeholders across different business units to support a common goal to provide customers a consistent experience.

Andre has played a crucial role as the overall Digital Channel Architecture lead at Standard Bank. His passion, strong technical background, broad conceptual thinking combined with attention to detail and outstanding work ethic has made him a well-respected authority and influencer within the Banks technical leadership and engineering community. He constantly strives to establish the appropriate guardrails, standards and patterns to provide guidance and direction to our large disparate engineering community with a view to ensure they all aligned and ideally produce quality solutions. Andre is not shy to roll up his sleeves and lead by example and code and validate his thinking. A true asset to any organisation.

Wayne Saunders

Andre displays a brilliant ability to self learn, even so with bleeding edge technologies where documentation and resources are limited. Whilst keeping abreast off the latest tech, he also pays good attention to brilliant basics. His genuine commitment to share knowledge with Peers and external Communities is the best testament to his character.
