History

2000. A watershed year for Indian IT, which had delivered successfully on the Y2K challenge and helped avert the collapse of global commerce and trade. Nihilent was incepted in the wake of such a turnaround, in August of the very year. Mr. LC Singh (LC), Executive Vice Chairman, was the pioneering founder of the company. LC, along with a group of like-minded people had observed that organizations were being presented with solutions that were technology-centric, and there was no mechanism to understand the dynamic nature of business. The question on their minds was ‘how does one help a business manage change?’ LC and team decided to set up a creative consulting organization with a holistic approach to problem-solving, introducing change through IT, people and process interventions. The company from its very inception has been a global enterprise, though headquartered in India. The first South African owned Indian company in the region, Nihilent found strategic investors in Nedcor Bank, a leading South African bank, Nihilent was geared up to serve key customers in the country as well as in other emerging markets. Over the last 18 years, Nihilent has come a long way, and is today a truly global company with footprints in five continents.
