Nick has worked in the property industry for over 25 years dealing with a wide variety of property types and sectors such as retail parks, cash and carry, restaurants, supermarkets and offices. Nick is a specialist in all aspects of Asset Management for a variety of clients and concentrates predominately on the Retail Park market doing rent reviews, lease renewals and re-gears as well new leases.
The current uncertain market conditions have meant that there are many opportunities for both landlords and tenants to secure and/or improve their financial position. The continuing influence of the digital world has put more pressure on retail especially and that change has been accelerated by CV19. Nick believes that “clicks” need “bricks” and in the future it will be a combination of excellent physical units as well as on-line fulfilment that will see retail thrive and it is those opportunities which need to be exploited.
Nick has had a variety of leadership roles within Colliers leading the Lease Advisory team for 5 years, the Retail - Out of Town team for 3 years and the Retail division on an interim basis for nearly 2 years.
As well as professional work, Nick’s experience as an officer in the Gurkhas taught the importance of leadership by example and leading retail teams within the UK has provided that opportunity to make a difference. Nick is happiest talking to clients, understanding their business and looking to help them be more successful.
