As a complement to Andy’s extensive sales & management skills, Nic brings a wealth of technical knowledge and experience. Since last century(!), US companies have employed Nic to establish software products outside of their home market, acting as a trusted advocate with extensive IT knowledge – working with engineering, partners and customers to deliver excellent solutions.

Performing as the go-to guy has meant covering roles in locum for US and Indian teams ranging from product and project manager, pre-sales engineer, strategist, public speaker to exhibition booth bunny.

From 2008, Nic enjoyed 8 years with Symantec working on a series of incubator projects including application virtualization and streaming, specialist multi-role virtual workspace management, mobile device and application management and mobile endpoint security. Open-source and Microsoft SaaS and on-premises platforms were key to all projects.

Prior to Symantec, Nic also worked for AppStream, WYSE and Netier in various subject-matter-expert roles, gaining much experience in solution development, training and deployment of VDI on thin-clients.

Starting out designing with technology such as DEC PDP-11 and paper-tape, Nic is still fascinated by all things IT – currently delving into Docker containerization, Meteor framework and the Internet of Things.
