Tony Nicholls, founder of Multisoft and MD between 1983 and 1997 is to set up a South African operation for Achiever Business Solutions (ABS). ABS is the European leader in the supply of Enterprise Wide GRC (Governance, Risk and Compliance) management systems.

Now based in South Africa, Nicholls will head up Achiever SA, supporting local Achiever partners grow the Achiever brand in the region, in line with expectations in this high growth market.

Achiever MD Robert Dent felt that Nicholls’ experience would accelerate the new operation’s growth commenting, “Achiever sales have been growing steadily in South Africa for quite a while, so the new operation is a natural development. With Tony at its helm we are confident that things will really take off. His track record and reputation is unparalleled and he is familiar with the specific needs of the country. We look forward to working closely with him.”

For his part, Nicholls saw a landscape of opportunity noting, “The South African market has now woken up to the need for GRC systems across the enterprise. Achiever is regarded very highly both here in SA and in Europe and with the backing of the Sword Group resources we have the opportunity to make a big impact. I am absolutely delighted to be involved. In many ways it reminds me of the early days at Multisoft when things took off, strong product combined with huge market momentum. I look forward to achieving big things for Achiever in Africa.”
