Embracing the opportunity to work flexibly, Nick relocated his family to the UK in April 2018 and works full time with us from his home in Wetherby, near Leeds. The resulting time difference and our use of effective electronic media means that we can keep the business running about 16 hours a day and achieve productivity efficiencies at the same time.

A father to three young children, Nick is passionate about sustainability in general, but in particular, that of the world’s fisheries.

Our varied projects provide opportunities for staff members to pursue their interests and to excel in their chosen specialism with the full support of the team.
