Nikki is currently Chief Operating Office of AIS Group plc and Managing Director of the Group’s largest trading subsidiary, Accident Exchange Limited.
Her finance experience began in a small Birmingham based accountancy practice where she qualified three years later. Nikki spent a further four years in practice as Audit Manager before moving to be Company Accountant at Accident Exchange Ltd in 2004. In 2005 she was appointed Finance Director, and more recently, in 2011, became Managing Director.
Over the last 12 years she has been heavily involved in the listing of the business on AIM, a move to the full list and a subsequent de-list to return to a privately owned business. The business is complex in nature and requires dynamic management. As a result Nikki has gained significant experience of managing a business through a recession and through industry wide commercial challenges.
Nikki has an operational board of 9 directors who between them manage a team of 400 employees. Her skills lie in using her commercial and operational experience with her financial acumen to understand and exploit business opportunities and to reduce and control costs where appropriate. She has a reputation for being logical, driven and straight talking.
Nikki is married and has two daughters who attend a Catholic school in Sutton Coldfield.
