Nik has worked in several business support roles in the manufacturing sector for Grant Thornton LLP and EEF Ltd. He was the Head of GROW:OffshoreWind - a supply chain development programme and prior to that, was Operations Manager for the Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS) in the South East & London. In industry, Nik was Operations Director in the Ryvita Co Ltd (a part of Associated British Foods), so, he is familiar with the pressures of running a successful company.

Away from work, Nik loves to cycle and has organised London to Paris and London to Amsterdam charity cycling trips.

During the last 12 years, I have been fortunate enough to work with many different types of companies across a range of sectors. This has provided me with a wealth of experience and fantastic insight into the challenges and opportunities facing the manufacturing sector
