Nick supported KFC on a retained basis on a series of new franchise partner searches throughout 2015, and played a pivotal role in developing and codifying our new partner sourcing strategy which was shared around the world. He is determined, and yet thoughtful in his approach to the challenge, and has a style of communication which engenders positivity whilst showing that he means business. I know that Nick has a breadth of experience, and a well-developed contact book which give him an immediate upper hand in the franchising space. He is fun to work alongside, and I look forward to spending more time with him on future projects.

I have had the pleasure of working closely with Nick across a number of brands since I started the role as UK Head of Franchising. He is obviously knowledgeable and professional and added to that I have found him transparent and an excellent communicator, comments echoed by the franchisees he and I have worked with, particularly in the EE network. Due to this I have asked Nick to help HSBC with a specific initiative being run with KPMG, around franchising your business. I have no hesitation in adding my recommendation

Andy Brattesani –
UK Head of Franchising, HSBC

“During this time Nick has recruited and on-boarded c60 new Franchisees who, collectively, have invested over £8m in the business and opened over 40 new outlets – with many more to follow through the now strong pipeline which he has created… the nature of our business is such that teamwork is a crucial element at all levels and across all functions. Nick’s effervescent personality, sense of humour and collaborative and supportive style of working have enabled him to establish strong relationships across the business and helped him to be as effective as he has been. Despite being an external consultant, Nick has carved out his place within the team and is very much viewed as an employee and “one of us”

I would not hesitate to recommend Nick to any organisation seeking to benefit from his wealth of recruitment experience to both help to define the ideal candidate profiles and to develop and implement appropriate recruitment strategies.

former MD, Pizza Hut UK & Ireland

“Nick was central to our franchise offer development and our growth through new franchisee sourcing. He offered significantly more than just recruitment due to his knowledge, experience and extensive contacts across the Franchising industry. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him and his services”.
