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.

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.”
