Prior to forming The Barton Partnership Nicholas was a Director at the search firm Astbury Marsden & Partners Ltd. During his time at the firm he was a key part of the senior management team and was specifically responsible for successfully building and leading the Commerce practice. The team focused on placing fast track candidates into Corporate Strategy or ‘in-house’ Corporate Finance / Development Positions in industry as well as Private Equity and Venture Capital, on either a contingent or retained search basis, nationally and internationally. Throughout his career he has specialised in, and successfully executed, a large number of senior retained and contingent assignments across Commerce, Financial Services and Professional services, globally.
He ultimately exited Astbury Marsden in 2007 after a successful £17.5m MBO of Astbury Marsden realising his equity stake which enabled him to fund the launch of The Barton Partnership in the same year.
In his spare time (when such a thing exists) Nicholas likes to spend time with his family, is an avid film watcher and keeps fit by playing tennis, football and going to the gym.
