Who I am
An ex boss once said “Nigel your operation in the UK is the most professionally run part of the whole global business”.
An experienced business professional I started my career literally on the shop floor repairing punctures in a local garage. An enormous capacity for hard work, a determination to shake off poor school achievement and a focus on making a better life I rose steadily up the corporate ladder.
My entire career (so far) has been about building and improving businesses as an employee. But the time has come to change this and do it for myself: The best is still too come. I want to make money and have fun, and the best way for me to achieve this is to combine my business skills with my passion for sport. Just for the record that’s participating not spectating.
