Wellington-based software company Solity makes two senior appointments

Solity Software Limited (Solity), the Wellington-based software company specialising in crisis preparedness and incident management, today announced two senior appointments. David Humm has been appointed Chief Financial Officer and Dan Hamid as Chief Sales Officer.

David Humm is an experienced Chartered Accountant who has held senior roles with several IT focused companies both in New Zealand and abroad. He was most recently CFO with MetService, the New Zealand meteorological solutions company, and before that with MoneyMate, a Dublin based company servicing the funds industry. In addition to a number of years of experience with ‘Big 4’ accountancy firms, David has held diverse contracting and consulting roles in London and Dublin

Dan Hamid has ten years experience in sales and marketing at multinational online publishing and software providers, and a track record of opening up and rapidly growing new markets, Dan joins Solity from Alexander Street Press where he was Australasian Regional Manager. Prior to the Alexander Street Press role he was Sales Manager for ProQuest, a multinational company providing cloud-based technology solutions for librarians, students and researchers.

Established in 2012 by technology entrepreneur Israel Reyes, Solity develops secure, cloud-based mobile software products for public and private sector businesses that provide the managers in those enterprises with the tools and information required to control and recover mission-critical operations and information, anytime and anywhere.

Managing Director Israel Reyes said, “David and Dan’s appointments are a key part of ensuring we have the right team in place to successfully execute the company’s accelerated growth plan following key new business wins this year. They not only have the necessary experience to help make the company’s aspirations a reality, but have also taken an equity stake in Solity providing additional capital to support our growth aspirations.”

“Solity’s crisis management platform provides its clients with resilient incident response solutions in place that help minimise human, reputational and financial costs during an incident or crisis by enabling quick and co-ordinated decision making, communication, and action, as well as providing extensive post-incident analysis.”
