Nigel was born in Zambia and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa.

After completing his first degree, he worked for Anglo American, at that time South Africa’s largest mining company.

In 1998, Nigel and his wife moved to the UK, where he held various HR leadership roles in a diverse range of industries, including FMCG, automotive, and software development. Between 20003 and 2021 he was employed within Honeywell Inc, a global US-based Fortune 100 company operating in diverse sectors including aerospace and defence, industrial automation, building technologies and safety and productivity solutions.

During his 17 years with Honeywell, Nigel had a wide range of HR Leadership roles, including responsibility for supporting business growth across Europe, Middle-East, Africa and India. Throughout his career Nigel has had a passion for supporting and enabling individuals and teams to develop to their full potential, and has been actively involved in the design and delivery of various employee and leadership development programmes. This culminated in his appointment as Talent and Learning Director for Honeywell EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa). In this last role, he supported all business groups across EMEA, constituting over 25,000 employees in 52 countries.

Nigel became a Legitimate Leadership associate in 2021

He lives in Derby, England, with his wife Lesley and their golden retriever, Jess. When not working, he likes mountain biking and kayaking, and (when in Africa) scuba diving and bush camping.
