Nigel’s career started in Midland Bank where he worked for six years in both a local and a London West End branch. Nigel joined Saha in 1984 as a Finance Officer when the Association owned just 10 hostel properties and one general needs scheme in Bournemouth. Nigel was then able to pursue his accountancy qualifications whilst progressing his career within the Association. He became Director of Finance in 2004. Nigel is also a company Director of Kingsown Property Limited and Saha Development Company, both wholly owned subsidiaries of Saha. Nigel is a qualified Chartered Public Finance Accountant.

What Saha means to me:

“In December 2014 I will have spent 30 years working at Saha and my sense of purpose in working for the organisation remains undiminished. I am very fortunate to have been able to spend most of my career at such an organisation – if the mission statement ‘transforming lives’ cannot enthuse you on a dreary Monday morning, I am not sure what else can!”
