State of Flux welcomes Nick Hyner and Charles Findlay

State of Flux is delighted to introduce two strategic new additions to our leadership team. Nick Hyner has joined as Managing Director Europe and Charles Findlay as Non-Executive Director. 

Nick Hyner – Managing Director Europe

Nick has been in the Technology sector for 15 years managing high growth technology and consulting businesses. Nick joins us from Dell, where he was European Director of Cloud Services - which he grew from inception to a thriving business operating in the U.K. Continental Europe and South Africa.  In his 12 year tenure with Dell, Nick held several senior roles, including Director of Partners for Dell Services and Commercial Director for Dell’s Global Segment. Prior to that, Nick worked as a Corporate Finance adviser advising technology businesses on strategy, fundraising and Mergers and Acquisitions and originally trained as a private equity lawyer at Clifford Chance.  Nick is responsible for growing our European business. Contact Nick at nick.hyner@stateofflux.co.uk or connect on LinkedIn.

Having worked with technology growth businesses independently and within large organisations, I am excited by the opportunity to grow State of Flux in Europe. The business already has an enviable 12-year track record of global niche brand, blue chip customer base and recognised consulting excellence and with strong demand for the Statess platform, there is great potential to grow in the next 5 years.

Charles Findlay – Non-Executive Director

We are pleased to welcome Charles to our Board. After graduating from Oxford University, Charles spent five years with GEC as an industrial engineer working in various manufacturing industries in Europe and the United States. Following an MBA from London Business School, he joined Andersen Consulting, now Accenture, first in the Strategy practice, then running the UK Supply Chain practice and finally helping set up the Procurement outsourcing business; in all 16 years. For the last few years, he has worked as an independent consultant, an angel investor in early stage technology companies and a founder member of the International Supply Chain Finance community. Contact Charles at charles.findlay@stateofflux.co.uk or connect on LinkedIn.

Managing effective supplier relationships is increasingly understood as critical to any organisation’s cost base, speed of response and long-term innovation.  I am proud to be working with the experts in the field and look forward to helping shape and direct the next stage of State of Flux’s development.

“We are delighted that Nick and Charles have joined us as we look to scale the business globally. Nick brings exceptional client relationship management and team building skills along with a deep knowledge of the technology market, which will benefit our clients as the adoption of supplier relationship management technology becomes more mainstream. We’re looking forward to working with Charles again where I know he brings a wealth of wisdom and experience of growing businesses within the consulting and technology arenas”. Alan Day, Chairman and founder.
