Nebulas Solutions Group co-founder John Reeman is leaving the VAR after nine years to focus on a new venture and has sold his 50 per cent stake to partner Nick Garlick.
Garlick will become sole owner of the security, virtualisation and WAN optimisation specialist after Reeman officially exits on 30 September.
The duo set up Nebulas, which works with vendors including Check Point, Blue Coat, F5 Networks and Tufin Technologies, in 2001.
Reeman his departure would allow him to focus on building up virtualisation security venture VMinformer, which he set up two years ago. He is emmigrating to Australia and will work out of VMinformer's Sydney office.
He said: “The timing was right in the sense that cloud and virtualisation security are rapidly emerging markets and that was something I wanted to explore from a technology and business perspective. That wasn’t what Nebulas was about so Nick and I agreed we were going in different directions.”
Garlick revealed he is bringing on board a private investor to help build the business. "It is sad that John is leaving after nine years," he said. " VMinformer is a very clever solution and we wish him the best."
Jonathan Lassman, managing director of security VAR NTS, said: “Nebulas is a good little business and as far as I was concerned it was only Nick’s company so there will be no change from the outside looking in.”
