record Salt techies’ work and Receipt Bank which can
digitalise and transcribe expenses.

Managing Director

Peter Müller

Peter took over as MD of Salt in 2016, having been part

of the team who set up the original Logical Networks,

which morphed into Salt in 2008.

He has always seen his role as bridging the “techies”
who talk their own language and the customers
who have particular IT problems to solve but don’t
necessarily know the best options to consider.
His Customer Service desk, project management
and IT academic backgrounds are enabling him to
steer Salt to greater heights even though the
economy is tough for all.

Maggi De Waal, Salt’s CRM Specialist and the coolest grandmother in town.

Sonja is passionate about IT and in particular Microsoft, and will take every moment and opportunity to apply it to her every day life and customers’ environment. By nature, Sonja is a sales specialist, and now has found herself at her next career opportunity with SALT as a Solutions Advocate.
