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!”
