Nihilent, Equip announce strategic partnership

Nihilent, a leading global consulting and solutions integration company, and Equip GRC, an advisory firm that provides governance, risk management and internal audit transformation solutions, today announced a strategic partnership designed to mutually benefit both companies to scale up and grow their businesses.

This strategic partnership will address the requirement for local capability building around sound business management practices, especially in the area of business and information technology consulting. This partnership is a direct response to the pro-investment and pro-growth policies and the “New Vigour, New Zeal, and New Speed” theme pursued diligently by the progressive government, which seeks to unleash Tanzania's latent growth potential.

While Equip brings with it leading practices in corporate governance, risk management, regulatory compliance and internal audit transformation, Nihilent brings hard rigor and plentiful experience into effective deployment through its competence around corporate strategy execution capability. Equip and Nihilent will combine their expertise to address the business challenges facing organisations in the financial services, government and state–run enterprises as well as supply chain and logistics.

“Equip and Nihilent have worked together in the past so I am pleased that we have now jointly created a framework that allows both organisations to leverage each other more formally and across a broader range of geographies,” said Davith Kahwa, Chief Executive Officer, Equip.

“Nihilent's presence in markets such as the India, North America, Europe, southern Africa and Middle East, coupled with its expertise in business and technology consulting, brings a wealth of consulting experience and exposure. This, combined with Nihilent's strong commitment to emerging economies, particularly East Africa, makes them a welcome addition to Equip's partner community,” added Kahwa.

Minoo Dastur, Chief Operating Officer of Nihilent, said: “Nihilent is engaged in introducing change through information technology, people and process interventions, in a systemic manner to improve performance for our customers. Equip's portfolio of corporate governance and risk management services complements our business and technology consulting portfolio. We are pleased to be partnering with Equip to provide end-to-end and high-quality consulting services to our clients in Tanzania.”
