Former CEO of Merrydown PLC. He has a track record of turning ailing companies into high flyers and invisible brands into famous ones. Under Nigel's direction, Shloer in the soft drinks market grew to brand leader, doubling in volume and turnover in just two years.

In the early 90s whilst working as the MD of Symonds Cider & English Wine Co. Ltd., he created the fourth largest cider business in UK and moved the Scrumpy Jack brand into clear leadership of the UK premium cider sector (760 pubs to 17,000 over four years). He now spends his time working as a portfolio director. Among other things, he is the Non Executive Group Chairman of Dawson Holdings PLC, a £780m turnover fully listed logistics business that employs 3000 personnel primarily across the UK and Europe.

Nigel has been voted one of the UK's top 12 CEO's by Investors Chronicle and also one of the top 5 UK Directors by Decision magazine & Deloitte & Touché. His success has little to do with management and marketing textbooks and everything to do with 30 years of inspired trial-and-error-and-retrial-and-success leadership.

He speaks on the subjects of company turnarounds and strategy.
