The firm recently formed this new division, which is aimed at ensuring businesses remain relevant in their markets and unlocking value through innovation. “Essentially, this division assists our stakeholders in making the right decisions regarding the sustainability of their businesses, as well as the systems and technologies that underpin their success. Evolving tech and innovation such as blockchain, machine learning and automation, as well as appropriate governance and data protection, are integral to this,” Govender explains.

Prior to working at Mazars, Govender was in partnership with a boutique consultancy business focusing on a similar portfolio with specialisation in IT governance, risk compliance and cyber resilience. In addition to being the CIO and COO for blue chip JSE-listed organisations, he has also been involved with numerous start-ups in the last three years. Govender also coaches budding entrepreneurs, which he considers his social responsibility.
Boasting an impressive academic résumé, Govender holds qualifications in Microsoft, COBIT, ITIL, Diploma Electronics, an MBA from Oxford Brookes and a post graduate diploma in Advanced Strategy from the University of SA.
