Marius Nel

CEO/Founding Partner

Marius has over 25 years of extensive technical and business managerial experience. After beginning his career in the R&D sector of mechanical engineering, Marius made the switch to IT in 1996 first acting as a technical support engineer and later moving up to the departmental general manager of a large JSE-listed company. After immigrating to the US in 2001, Marius began laying the foundation for what would eventually become 360 Smart Networks.

Marius brings a unique engineering perspective to the management of IT systems and strives to optimize every aspect of IT management. From its inception in 2002, he has grown 360 Smart Networks from a startup in his guest bedroom to a company with 30 employees, a grounded office space, and revenues in excess of $5M/year.
