Soltius appoints CEO

Soltius appoints CEO

Nick Mulcahy has been appointed as Soltius New Zealand’s CEO as the SAP gold partner evolves with the enterprise software market.

With more than 100 employees and annual turnover forecasted to be more than $30m this year, Soltius is New Zealand’s leading provider of SAP enterprise software services and solutions. Nick is a shareholder and member of the executive team at the management-owned company and Soltius Board Chairman Dr Peter Catt says he is uniquely qualified for the role.

“Nick is a well-recognised thought leader in the New Zealand SAP community and has driven the strategic vision for Soltius for the past 10 years. He led the company through the transition from being a pure consulting services company to becoming New Zealand’s most successful SAP Value Added Reseller (VAR), is a highly capable management executive and is a passionate advocate for both Soltius and SAP.”

Nick graduated from Massey University with a Bachelor of Technology, majoring in Engineering and Automation (1st Class Honours) and started his SAP career at Carter Holt Harvey before moving into consulting, quickly becoming one of the country’s top SAP solution architects. He joined Soltius in 2003 to lead the newly established VAR practice, and with an MBA from Henley he has held a number of senior leadership roles at the company.

Nick says the industry is at undergoing a seismic shift and Soltius is well placed to take advantage of this transformation. “Trends such as cloud and mobile technology and the need to manage and make sense of exponential increases in data are disrupting the traditional enterprise software industry.

“It’s an exciting time and SAP is at the forefront with its innovations in the cloud, mobility and analytics space. As an SAP gold partner Soltius is leading this move toward increased business simplicity in New Zealand.

He says Soltius invests heavily to stay ahead of these changes, evaluating SAP’s new products for their fit to New Zealand enterprises and establishing dedicated business lines in the areas of strategic importance. “As the pace of change accelerates we will continue to expand our SAP offerings and bring the right solutions to the New Zealand market.”
