Solnet boosts digital transformation capabilities

Appoints Nick Evans as IT Transformation Director


Wellington 5 December 2016 Solnet, one of New Zealand's leading digital and enterprise technology organisations, has appointed Nick Evans to the newly created position of IT Transformation Director, effective immediately.

Solnet Managing Director Mark Botherway says the new role within the company's senior executive team reflects the company's growth and ongoing commitment to digital transformation at the enterprise level.

There's plenty of talk about digital transformation and it's commanding significant attention at senior levels across the country, as organisations move to improve their digital product offerings. However, the reality is that for large government and enterprise-class organisations, digital transformation is as much about strategy and execution as it is technology.

"Nick, with his experience in large-scale projects, team management, solutions delivery and operations, has the perfect mix of talents for this new role. He's leading a team of specialists who have the diverse range of skills needed to help organisations successfully execute their digital transformation strategy to deliver tangible value," says Botherway.

Evans says he is delighted with the challenges and opportunities that his new position will provide.

Successful digital transformation requires changing an organisation's IT to be more responsive and innovative. Solnet has long-standing professional relationships with both government agencies and enterprise clients, and we understand the size and complexity of their challenges in this area.

"Solnet has the vision, along with depth of experience and technical capability needed to help our clients successfully leverage their IT assets for rapid, customer-centric digital innovation," says Evans.

Evans joined Solnet in 2000 and has held several management positions including service delivery and operations, where he oversaw the implementation of a number of large, enterprise IT projects across both government and corporate. Prior to Solnet, he held a variety of engineering and consulting positions, including being part of the project management team set up by the railways of Britain, France, and Belgium to manage the procurement of the Eurostar high-speed passenger trains, linking London, Paris, and Brussels via the Channel Tunnel.
