Founder & CEO at The NiVACK Group
Prior to founding The NiVACK Group, Nick Gunn was a Senior Vice President at Hewlett Packard Enterprise where he was responsible for Global Corporate Services where he ran Procurement, Travel, Real Estate, Fleet, Aviation, Security and was responsible for $27BN+ in spend.
Nick found success at Hewlett Packard and Hewlett Packard Enterprise thanks, in part, to his ability to quickly recognize that a successful company is one that values, develops, and empowers its customers - both internal and external. A successful company seeks to first understand the needs of its customers and then deliver products and services that meet and exceed expectations. The philosophy of valuing, developing, and empowering customers has been Nick’s foundation for every endeavor since.
The decision to found The NiVACK Group came about as a result of spending time with CEOs and other senior leaders at a number of large Fortune 500 companies as well as some much smaller, privately-held enterprises. What Nick discovered was quite a surprise. A majority of these companies (both large and small) simply do not have well-thought-out, tried, and true strategies for many internal functions such as procurement, real estate, and other shared services! Furthermore, out of those businesses undergoing a merger, acquisition, or divestiture, very few have thoughtfully considered what the change will do to their bottom line.
All of this led Nick to a key realization: people are missing out on a huge opportunity to become more profitable because they are neglecting the cost-side of their business. And he became inspired to do something about it.
