Meet the Team

Mark Böhmer

Managing Director

“Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence.” – Vince Lombardi


As an engineer and a businessman I enjoy creating solutions that empower people through technology.

My passion for success is only secondary to the people that I work with. In my experience a happy and motivated workforce can overcome most obstacles and perform beyond their capabilities.


My keen interest in current and global technology  trends equips me to develop systems and strategies  that not only face local challenges, but also incorporates global influences.

I have a diverse background across all aspects in both business and technology, from business development, manufacturing, supply chain management, technical marketing and information technology management, to Internet of Things (IoT), systems and data architecture, mobile application development and cloud platforms.

This experiential diversity allows me to quickly assess the problem scope and identify short to medium term solutions as well as long-term strategy.

“Clarity is the key to effective leadership.
What are your goals?” – Brian Tracy


Allen studied BSc Computer Science at University of Pretoria. In high school he represented South Africa among 53 other countries in the International Olympiad in Informatics. He served as Allegra’s Solutions Architect for a number of years after which he headed various start-ups and is currently the Chief Technology Officer for Velocity. Allen designed many of Allegra’s systems. Notably he is the designer of VirtualCaretm for the Afrocentric group.


Logical thinking is a way of life for me and keeps me sane and grounded. I have a knack for disseminating problems and find it easy to explain the solutions simply. This simplicity creates significant clarity for our team and clients, and greatly improves quality of communication. I enjoy directing and driving technical teams and am often asked for assistance in solving difficult problems for the team at Velocity.
