Nic Elliott is new club president

Nic Elliott, a director of Nottingham law firm, Actons, has been elected as the new president of the Nottingham City Business Club (NCBC) following the club’s recent AGM.

He takes over from Jonathan English, managing director of video production company, Skeleton Productions, who has been the club’s president for the past year.

Nic is an employment lawyer and heads up Actons’ employee investigations team.  Prior to joining the firm, he spent eight years at international law firm, Wragge & Co including time in the HR department of a global retail bank. In addition to his work commitments, Nic is a governor at a local primary school.

Talking about his appointment as president, Nic said: “I am really pleased to have been elected as president of NCBC.  I’ve been involved in the club for some time, most recently as vice president, and look forward to leading it over the next twelve months.   I want to build on the great work Jonathan has put into developing the club and grow the membership further to ensure it reflects the strength of business in the city.”

NCBC is one of the oldest institutions of its kind in the country, providing a forum for business people from the greater Nottingham area to meet to hear from influential members of the local business community and generate commerce.

The AGM also saw James Simmonds, partner at accountants, UHY Hacker Young LLP, elected as vice-president, a role that he will undertake whilst continuing in his current role of club treasurer. Moreover, Alison Rayner of Initial Design was re-elected as club secretary.

The president’s medal was officially handed to Nic at the club’s monthly lunch on Friday 15 May.
