The key appointments made today will help drive Nexion’s goal to become a global contender in the enterprise IT Managed Services market.
Nexion Group (ASX:NNG) has made key hires to its executive team as it prepares for the next phase of growth.
The global hybrid cloud provider appointed three new executives to key positions to create a strong team across finance and administration, revenue generation and technical solutions.
Evelyn Hogg, FCA, MAICD has taken on the role of CFO at Nexion, after a decade at BDO Australia where she held the position of associate director.
Hogg has had a distinguished career spanning Australia and South Africa, with diverse experience and expertise in financial accounting, management accounting, auditing, and governance.
Her early experience in academia included roles as a senior lecturer, auditing and corporate accounting at the Notre Dame University, University of Western Australia Business School, and Murdoch University Business School.
During those years, Hogg also co-authored a leading Australian tertiary accounting text, leveraging on her qualification as a chartered accountant and chartered management accountant.
She is a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, and a Fellow of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand.
Another new hire, Jamie Morgan, will become Nexion’s chief revenue officer where he will spearhead global revenue growth.
In this role, Morgan will be responsible for identifying, developing, and closing larger strategic sales opportunities for Nexion.
He will handle a specific focus in forging Nexion’s global relationship with IBM, a company he has previously worked for.
Including IBM, Morgan has also worked for leading companies including ASG, Sands Solutions and Schlumberger.
He is a Trustee and regular contributor at CEDA, the Committee for Economic Development of Australia.
Meanwhile, Luke Poyner has been promoted to chief technical officer, responsible for technical solutions and delivery.
Poyner joined Nexion in 2020, having previously held the position of IT manager for Firesafe Group.
He has experience in solutions architecture and information technology management and holds several industry technical certifications including Fortinet NSE 4 – Network Security Expert and NSE 7 – Enterprise Firewall certificates.
Poyner is currently completing a Master’s degree in cyber security.
“Nexion is positioned to become a serious contender in global ICT and Cloud, and the appointment of such a strong C-Level management team sets a stronger foundation for the growth we have planned,” commented Nexion CEO, Paul Glass.
“I’m extremely proud to have such strong additions to the executive team in Evelyn, Jamie and Luke in place to help me drive the business forward”.
The appointments announced today coincide with Nexion’s rapid progress, as it managed to forge partnerships with three key global players since listing on the ASX in February this year.
Its global partnership deals with IBM and Aryaka signed earlier this year are expected to underpin the company’s long term global expansion strategy.
Another key global partnership was also announced last month with US-based Fortune 500 tech giant, NetApp.
Nexion was chosen by the San Jose-based company as its partner in Australia & New Zealand to distribute NetApp’s Keystone Storage-as-a-Service solutions product.
The NetApp Keystone platform delivers a hybrid cloud experience using one orchestration tool for creating, provisioning, migrating, and managing storage on-premise or in the cloud.
With these partnerships and the new executives on board, Nexion is fast cementing its place in the competitive global market for cloud services, as it makes progress towards becoming a global contender in the enterprise IT Managed Services market.
