Debra-Lynn Marais is very personable, so much so that her official Altron profile – among stoic corporate sentences – mentions her nickname is Debbye.

“I didn’t know that!” she exclaims, but says it wasn’t unusual for her to have a nickname, adding: “I was one of three Debbies at school.” Back then, Marais wasn’t looking at a technology career. Instead, she set her course towards an accounting degree. How she subsequently rose to become Altron’s Group CIO reveals how much business is taking ownership of technology.
