Tani has over 20 years of Senior Management experience in the Information Technology industry. After graduating with an MBA from Stanford University in 1993, Tani returned to Nigeria to lead the operations of Resourcery Ltd., at the time, a small IT company trying to find its niche.
In 2000, he prepared the company for external investment and convinced the first Nigerian private equity firm to invest in Resourcery. To grow the company, Tani implemented the strategy to focus on core networking technologies and expand from there. He built strategic relationships with global IT firms and today the company is a major partner for technology leaders like Cisco, EMC, VCE, SAS, Check Point and CommScope. An oversubscribed 2008 private placement provided the private equity firm a handsome exit and expanded the shareholding of the company to over 1,200 making Resourcery the first systems integrator to become a public company.
Today Resourcery is a leading IT systems integrator in West Africa. It provides services across the region from its offices in Nigeria and Ghana. The company offers innovative information technology solutions for large enterprise customers in the financial services, telecoms, energy, manufacturing, government and service industries. Resourcery is a thought leader in the platform shift from PCs to smart connected devices. It helps clients navigate the ‘new normal’ of cloud based solutions by offering the infrastructure that makes this possible. The company has deep skills in networking, data centers, collaboration solutions, security, servers, storage and business applications.
Tani served on the industry advisory board to the Federal Minister of Communications Technology and is on the board of Paga Tech a leading payments provider in Nigeria. He was also a member of the Partner Operations Advisory Board for Cisco Systems (EMEA) and the Cisco Partner Executive Exchange.
