About the company
In 1999, Kipp Vann and Nick McCune met for the first time on a consulting client that was struggling with their multi-million dollar ERP project. Kipp & Nick worked together to define a new implementation strategy. What no one knew about the plan was that Kipp and Nick had agreed to switch their traditional roles on the project. Therefore, Kipp became the project team lead and Nick became the developer (I think the statute of limitations for bad decisions and bad code on that project is past for us). Fortunately, the project was a success and a lifelong friendship was born. Later on, Kipp became a Chief Information Officer and Nick started his own consulting company. In 2011, Kipp & Nick got the band back together and teamed up again to form Nuage Group (“Nuage” is French for Cloud), a Salesforce focused consulting company.
Nuage Group was created based upon three shared beliefs:
- Salesforce and Cloud Computing is the business platform of the future
- Superior results for our customers are achieved by combining industry & technology expertise
- Build a “Family” of consultants who love working together, have fun and help others
We have many talented team members, here are a few of them.
President & Founder
I love bringing new ideas and capabilities to organizations and I am a believer in the power of technology to drive business efficiency and engage customers. I also believe in cloud computing and the Salesforce platform. In fact, I believed so strongly in salesforce.com, Marc Benioff, and the Salesforce platform that I quit my job as CIO of a public company to start a Salesforce consulting business called Nuage Group. Btw, Nuage is French for cloud, clever eh?

Chief Technology Officer
I am a down to earth person who enjoys a good hearty laugh.
Born and brought-up in Mumbai (Bombay), India and have resided in the United States for the last 16 – 17 years in California, Massachusetts and Florida. A father of two boys who love to hangout on the beach and spend time grilling during our camping adventures and blessed with a wonderful wife, who is the master chef of our lives.

The most exciting part of my career has been building offshore development centers including managed services ground-up in India, the latest one is now a $ 3.5 m business.
My efforts in information security, risk management, information systems controls and IT governance have provided effective, measurable progress to the CEO and the board of directors for directing and managing the organization’s IT ROI.
I came across computers in 1988 when my school offered a summer camp on BASIC language on a ZX spectrum, and was mesmerized by a Christmas tree I made with the asterisk character ‘*’. In 1993 I got a scholarship for Master’s Diploma in Software Engineering. After Bachelors I chose post graduation specialization in Artificial Intelligence and Network protocols from the National Center of Software Technology (NCST, India).
Today emerging technologies still excite me and I take deep interest in SaaS, Cloud computing (Salesforce, AWS, Google Apps), Mobile, Social & IoT, However on any given weekend you will find me away from computers, being a kid and making constructive use of time in any way not related to technology.
