NICK WILKINSON

Nick was raised in Yorkshire, and attended Heckmondwike Grammar school (HGS) before going on to Huddersfield Polytechnic where he gained a BSc Hons in Mechanical Engineering.

During the course, he decided that he wanted a career in general management rather than specialising in design, so embarked upon a career in Production, Purchasing and Stock Control, starting out on a Teaching Company Scheme.

During his career, he has worked for Holset/Cummins, Spring Ram, MFI and latterly Unique Party – a distributor of Party products. As Supply Chain Manager, he heads up a team responsible for forecasting and stock control of the Company’s products. He is also a Director/Partner of a small building company set up to convert some old barns into residential dwellings, in Lincolnshire.

He has two daughters – Katie, 21, an Apprentice Accountant for 3 years, and Lucy, 18, who has just completed A levels –both also attended HGS. However, he has not pushed his daughters towards University, but has empowered them to make their own decisions and follow their dreams.
