Former partner at Internos Real Investors and interim Finance Director of the UK arm of Chinese property investor, Vanke, Nicholas Hills has been unveiled as Bidwells' new Finance Director.
The father of four has more than 20 years’ financial management experience across a broad range of organisation sizes, including the real estate divisions of Goldman Sachs and Prudential Financial as well as working as CFO at the Royal Society of Chemistry in Cambridge and at the Diocese of Ely Multi-Academy Trust (DEMAT), which is based in his home city of Ely.
Chief Financial Officer of Bidwells, Gerald Collins, said: “Nicholas brings with him a depth of expertise and is what you call a ‘hands-on’ financial director. But he will also offer a rare strategic insight having worked across a range of organisation sizes, many of them property companies. We are delighted to have secured his services.”
Bidwells celebrates its 180th year in business this year and recently announced it had broken the £50m turnover barrier for the first time in its history.
