Dimension Data Australia chief executive, Rod Cunico, said the acquisition was a significant strategic step in enhancing the Group's geographic coverage and depth of skills and capabilities.

"For over three decades, Dimension Data has been building expertise and experience in ICT solutions and services that deliver real business value to our clients." Nexus chief executive, Deron Pearson, said the acquisition was a fantastic milestone in the history of the company.

"I am very excited about the opportunity for our clients to tap into Dimension Data's solutions and services, particularly the opportunity for us to extend new cloud capabilities, IT outsourcing and additional managed services on a global basis." Pearson will report to Mark Slaga, chief executive of Dimension Data Americas, and continue to lead the Nexus business.

Nexus President and COO Waheed Choudhry will continue to run Nexus' day-to-day operations, reporting to Pearson.
