After gaining a business degree, Nick joined George Wimpey working in a transport division, where he gained an interest in Logistics and then moved to BOC Distribution Services (now GIST) as Operations Manager in a chilled food RDC for Marks and Spencer. In his next GIST role, he opened a Global Catering RDC for British Airways at Heathrow, then moved to the Czech Republic as Country Manager, where he implemented transport operations and drinks warehousing for a Dutch Supermarket, then went on to work in Poland, France and The Netherlands.
He returned to the UK to open a multi temperature RDC for Wincanton Logistics for Iceland Foods in North London. After this 3rd party work, he became Logistics Director for the then fast-growing Firetrap fashion brand, for 10 years. In this, he implemented an origin logistics operation with a ground breaking pick and pack warehouse in Shenzhen, China as well as setting up the Firetrap web site and building a true multi-channel logistics operation. He then spent 4 years rebuilding the IT infrastructure of a large consumer goods business that operated in multi locations and traded in 64 countries.
He spent a brief time as the Chief Operating Officer at The Snugg.com, an online retailer of accessories for consumer technology and made The Snugg truly global with a Hong Kong distribution operation and global online fulfilment.
He is now Managing Director at Mode Logistics, who specialise in international freight, B2B and B2C for high end fashion brands, delivering to the likes of ASOS, Selfridges, Harrods and Harvey Nichols. Nick is driving Mode’s growth as well with IT implementations and operational and online consultancy for selected Mode customers.
