NICK BLOMELEY – CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER – EUROPE AND AFRICA
A career history with change agent written all over it for multinationals effecting powerful business, behavioural and cultural transformation.
The only thing about Nick that doesn’t change is his devotion to his family and his guilty pleasure of still after all these years being a Phil Collins and Genesis fan.

GARRY MARSH – NON EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Garry’s global experience brings a diversity to the board as he has lived and worked in the A-Z of countries, from Arabia to Zambia. Holding numerous executive positions he still remains on the board of a few institutions and has a busy portfolio.
When not sharing his wisdom, he will be found travelling as his love for culture, history, tasty food and fine wine brings him to places far and wide.
TONY HIGHLAND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER – UK
Tony is a business leader that thrives on making sense of ambiguity and change in a commercial world that is increasingly global. He has used this to great effect across a wide range of sectors in businesses large and small up to board level.
Unfortunately it has taken a toll on his hair, but he sees that as a distinct advantage in terms of drag when whistling down mountains on skis or a snowboard. As a lifelong Watford FC fan he is used to bouncing back after disappointment, but at his age, lets just say it’s more of a ricochet than a bounce!
