The current team
Niall McGinnity – Nuvem9 CEO
I’m Niall McGinnity and I am the Founder of Nuvem9. I trained with Deloitte and was admitted to Chartered Accountants Ireland in 2002. I then spent 10 years working in e-commerce and tech companies, operating at CFO and COO level. In these roles I learned how to raise funding, manage teams in different locations and the importance of systems in financial operations. I also learnt that businesses can suffer terribly when cash isn’t available and gained valuable intel into how to manage cash strapped businesses. I set-up Nuvem9 to pass on the expertise and experience I had gained to the next generation of small business owners. I am passionate about building businesses that make an impact in the world. Where Nuvem9 is different from other accountancy based consultants is that we can combine getting you access to and understanding your numbers and then actually connecting you with service providers to deliver your strategy – we work with a wide network of lenders that can deliver the funds you need and we have access to expertise and experience in sales processes, technical development, digital marketing and customer support.
And whilst I advocate cloud tools on a daily basis to my clients, I do practice what I preach! I now live in Portugal with my family, running my business using cloud technology and using my home as a base to explore Europe in our spare time.

Mike Bowman – Business Mentor
Since 2002, Mike has worked in the start up arena, first as an entrepreneur co-founding a software security company and then then for E-Synergy, an early stage fund manager and support company. During this time he managed over 40 equity investments and mentored over 400 companies.

Although the corporate world does not offer the same opportunities as a small business it does provide an environment full of experience.
Mike believes that mixing the lessons learnt from small and a large business gives the greatest chance of success. Mike joined Nuvem9 as a Business Mentor in late 2017 and brings a wealth of experience to Nuvem9’s exciting client base of growing Companies.
