Nick grew up in the mountains of New Zealand. He was fortunate to be raised on the family’s Merino sheep and Angus cattle station, and remains endeared and intimately connected to the land.
After university Nick committed his career to connecting growers with consumers; using produce as a platform to share in the experience of farming in New Zealand, and to foster equitable value transfer back to farmer producers. Nick spent time working for New Zealand’s leading marketers of wool, meat and leather before founding The New Zealand Luxury Group where he remains as Managing Director.
The New Zealand Luxury Group connects New Zealand farmers through global supply chains to offer bespoke leather and textile solutions for the world's most exclusive fashion houses in more than 30 countries. Nick also consults with several of New Zealand’s primary sector marketing companies, is a market development advisor to Wool Source as they take new strong wool innovations to market, and is a director of Wool Impact - New Zealand’s industry-good body tasked with growing awareness, demand and value for the wool sector.
He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Applied Science, Graduate diploma in Finance, Postgraduate Diploma in Management, and Masters in International Business as a Goodman Family scholar. Nick is also a graduate of the Stanford GSB’s Executive Leadership Development program.
