Ruan Lombard, Chief Information Officer

“Digitisation is at the centre of enabling the Impact that defines PnS’s purpose. Technology enables the optimal deployment of our resources and ensures we’re attending to the most important opportunities to advance our clients businesses in-store. Our ability to deliver continuous and improving value to clients over time also demands that our systems are world-class and keep up with emerging and converging technologies.” After a few years of financial audits with PwC , Ruan realised that his passion lay with technology, transferring to the Technology Risk Services department within PwC where he did security and information systems audits.

Ruan managed two online gaming companies and an outsourced IT solutions provider business. He joined PnS as in-house ITC General Manager in 2010 and over the years of his tenure has been integral in the evolution of PnS’s mobile technology platform. He was appointed Chief Information Officer in January 2018. Ruan and his team manage the hardware, software development and various ICTsystems that link our back office, offices and field operations as well as our call centre with client’s systems. Ruan’s depth of system knowledge and breadth of experience will be key in ensuring PnS is future-ready with the technology and system integration capability that will underpin this.
