After using a Headhunter to look for a new job, he fell into headhunting himself. This led him swiftly onto founding (and ultimately exiting) international banking headhunting company, Carrington Fox.

Further adventure followed in the form of other early-stage investments in recruitment, financial service, professional services and various IT companies.

During his tenure as CEO of the Palmarium Group, Nick constantly used Business Advisors, Executive Coaches and Non-Executive Directors to assist himself and his management team develop their own ideas and skillsets. Today Nick has a private portfolio of investments within established, early-stage and start-up SME’s. His real love is supporting business owners and management teams to achieve their true potential; for themselves!
