Nigel completed a full first career in the Army, including command of the 2nd Royal Tank Regiment. He retired as a Brigadier. Despite being a philosophy graduate, he seemed destined for several staff appointments with a technical bent in the MOD. His final appointment was Director of the Technology Division at the Defence Academy, responsible for technology education across all four Services. After the Army, he cut his commercial teeth in two SMEs working in the Education Sector. He joined ReEnergise in 2015, to lead on sales and harness his knowledge of the challenges facing the Education Sector. As Sales & Marketing Director he is responsible for bringing in new business, as well as the strategic direction of the work for each client. He sees his primary role as safeguarding the client’s interests, and providing resolutely forthright and impartial advice on energy efficiency, sustainability and low-carbon projects.
