Zoltan Nagy

Managing Director

Middleware Specialist

Mid-Tier Solutions Limited has been established as an IT Consultancy company in 2012. In the beginning I provided IBM certificate consultancy services to IBM Business Partners.
In 2016, I started offering Middleware technical consultancy services as a freelance consultant to my clients in the United Kingdom.
Responding to the recent News announced that several British financial institutions are putting plans in place to protect their EU operations after Brexit and planning to branch into a European hub in European cities like Brussels, Paris and Berlin; starting from July 2017 I am offering my services on these European locations as well (among other locations too) with my EU nationality and 5 years working experience at British major banks. I may also consider working in the UAE.
