Mark Sweeny - Chief Executive , de Novo Solutions

 I am an industry award-winning Founder of de Novo Solutions a specialist SME digital boutique consultancy focused upon the experience economy using Oracle Cloud and ServiceNow technologies adding significant value to our clients by re-imagining enterprise operations by delivering personalised experiences over standardised processes.


de Novo is an exciting new business venture pioneering once again into the hybrid Cloud and pushing the boundaries of the art of the possible in a digital world.


Previously I was the former Founder and Chief Executive of Certus Solutions, the very first UK&I only dedicated implementation partner of Oracle Cloud applications, prior to a successful exit by acquisition to Accenture UK Ltd in May 2018. I remained post acquisition (earn-out period) as a Managing Director in Accenture’s UK&I business operations until September 2020.


At its peak Certus was an Oracle Platinum Partner, with a global presence employing 115 people over three continents, with over 35 customers and was Oracle’s HCM Cloud EMEA Specialised Partner of the Year 2017. 


Certus was recognised as the pioneer of Oracle Cloud across the UK&I and specifically into the UK Public Sector Central Government, undertaking five major implementations using its templated engage.gov blueprint for Shared Services business operations, whilst also amassing a blue-chip portfolio of several large multi-national clients, undertaking implementations in North American, Europe, Middle East, and AsiaPac (Singapore and Australia).


As a serial entrepreneur I have now been directly involved in the start-up of four businesses, whilst my extensive experience and knowledge, specifically in UK Central Government back-office Shared Services operations, has also enabled me to provide counsel and direction to the boards of international software houses and to several central government departments. I am equally renowned for my business development activities with over £75m professional services engagements personally closed and delivered over my career, whilst also being an active Business Angel Investor and Advisor providing advice & guidance to various small medium enterprises – a cause I very much champion.


I am a member of Institute of Directors (IoD) and the UK British Angels Association as well as a Fellow Certified IT Professional of the British Computing Society (FBCS CITP). I also hold a First Class Honours degree in Business Studies from Westminster University and a MBA from the Strathclyde Graduate Business School.
