only one




Before the world had a term for it, Nulli has been protecting and managing identities for companies of all sizes. Founded in 1986, Nulli began as an HR Systems consulting practice, helping companies manage all aspects of their employee information. In the late '90s, we naturally moved into the world of managing those identities, right as Identity Management got its start.


The inevitable progression toward identities being customers and things has been fueled by the ubiquitous presence of devices used to access information. Securing these identities is mission critical.


Our work is complex, but our mission is simple: we aim to give you the most astute advice in the IAM industry. In order to do that, we listen to what you need, get our entire team engaged in finding the answer and maintain a strong connection with you through rapid industry changes.


Safety and success start with your trust in us to lead you forward. See why so many have trusted us to assist in keeping their identities and organizations secure.




We live our core values every day with every single project. We take great pride in being recognized for “doing the right thing” on behalf of our clients. As a trusted advisor, Nulli provides the same advice we would give ourselves when deciding on a common-sense course of action.




Our integrity means always doing the right thing. The intricacies of Identity and Access Management demand we take a nuanced approach to your problem. After we get an understanding of what you need, we will always recommend the most calculated course of action. This will always be what’s right for you, even if it means leaving us behind.

Knowledge drives every decision we make; through our collective years of experience, our close relationships with industry thought leaders and our pursuit of continuous improvement and innovative solutions. We are leaders and innovators in our industry and bring the knowledge of our entire team to every project in our ever-changing industry.

Partnership is our philosophy. No matter where you are in the world, and regardless of how many identities you need protected, we’re here to work in your best interest. Serving our clients well has served us, and we have them and our preferred industry partners to thank for the many innovative projects we’ve led over the years. Just like you, we look to partner with the very best, and our industry-leading vendors are a huge part of our reputation for success.




Our leadership team is a blend of talent, knowledge and evangelism of Identity Management, who empower people with the right information to get the job done.

Derek Small

Innovation Sponsor & CEO

Richard Deyholos

VP Professional Services

Barb Gosling

Managing Partner

As our founder, Derek defines success by his team’s ability to deliver beyond the expectations of our clients and partners. He is the company sponsor for bringing leading technology to the table. He loves to foster a culture of problem-solving and innovation.

At his core, Richard understands and cares about people. He knows where our consultants excel, how they work and how to support them in achieving our clients’ goals. His attentive service exceeds expectations in our tech-driven industry, and his brand of leadership fosters long-term loyalty and a strong, supportive internal team.

Barb always brings her depth of knowledge and experience to the executive table. She seeks to better Nulli for each passionate employee, boundary-pushing client and loyal partner: championing the core values that have led to our success and who we are today.



We bring the same contagious energy we bring to our clients and partners to our community and causes that matter. In 2013, Nulli partnered with Aspen Family & Community Network Society (now known as Trellis), and we have been honoured to provide financial and volunteer support.  We chose to support Aspen after a focused employee engagement process to ensure Nulli directed its support to an organization consistent with all of our values. 

On June 15, 2020, Trellis was born when Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary and Aspen joined forces. Together they are one organization with countless ways to help. This is more than a merger of two organizations being stitched together into one, this is an amalgamation of nearly 120 years of history being dreamed into something new.

Nulli is excited to work with Trellis and to continue to support the Advancing Practice portfolio. The Advancing Practice team improves the agency's ability to provide streamlined, innovative, and client-centered services in Calgary and the surrounding area. By working across a number of agency programs, this team is positioned to guide services differently through the identification of trends, gaps, and opportunities for increased collaboration.


Winner of the HOPE Award

Nulli is honoured and humbled to be the recipient of a 2018 Aspen HOPE Award.

In addition to our support of Trellis, Nulli recognizes and encourages employee volunteering through both individual and team volunteer days to help build stronger communities. Nulli also has a donation matching program in support of charities of interest to our individual employees.

About Trellis

The challenges facing our communities are growing ever more complex. People of all ages and backgrounds face intergenerational trauma and disparities in opportunity and ability. Trellis tackles these problems by bringing together teams with the skill, passion and range of expertise to make a difference.


We're proud to support Trellis in their mission to provide effective frameworks and opportunities for nurturing human potential. Trellis knows that growth happens on nourished ground and they're committed to empowering individuals and communities with the support they need to grow beyond life's challenges and reach their dreams. 

The HOPE Awards recognize individuals, teams, and organizations who, in partnership with Aspen, have made substantial contributions in the lives of Calgarians experiencing significant life changes.
