Nigel’s first career was as an investment banker in the City - but a desire to do a proper job brought him to Wales 25 years ago. He put his City experience to good use when he formed Glas Cymru and raised the money to buy Welsh Water in 2001.
As a result, the water industry in Wales is now owned on behalf of the people who rely on Welsh Water every day for the most essential of public services. Not for profit, for the benefit of Wales.
Nigel stepped down as CEO of Welsh Water in 2013 and joined Community Foundation Wales the same year. He is also a non-executive director of the Principality Building Society and continues to get involved in a number of projects that promote the mutual ethos, particularly in Wales.
Nigel has two grown-up sons, lives outside Brecon and is making slow progress to being able to speak Welsh fluently.
