Additional Information

Nick came to Thame 30 years ago when he was a young newspaper editor, and he subsequently founded a publishing business in the town. His wife Hilly was living in Chinnor when they met, and they have four children.


Having sold his business, Nick worked as a political and media adviser in Westminster and now freelances as a public affairs consultant. Locally, he has served as a Church Warden and is now a member of the C. of E.’s Deanery and Diocesan Synods. 


Prior to his current roles at the County Council, he was a Cabinet member from 2012-17 with responsibility for the wide range of customer and business services, communications, ICT and property. His remit at that time included the launch of Oxfordshire’s superfast broadband programme, and he helped to establish it as one of the best in the country.
