Nick Bicknell has been appointed by H&H Classics
to manage its Sales and Business Development team.
He has spent almost 30 years in senior management within the automotive sector with some of the leading marques, including Rolls Royce, Bentley, Porsche, Ferrari and Aston Martin.
He is a business builder with experience as a very successful franchisor of a car repair service, growing the franchise network from zero to 350 independent franchisees and ultimately selling the business, Chipsaway International, for significant value to a UK PLC.
This gave him the freedom and finances to indulge in his life-long passion for motorsport. But it wasnt long before he felt the need to return to the addictive world of classic and performance cars and when the opportunity arose to join the auction world. It was too difficult to resist he says.
A true professional he is focused on delivering the very best service levels for clients both old and new. The result is that his network includes many clients who are now close friends who share his automotive interests.
His love of cars goes back to his youth. At just 15 years of age he restored his first car, a jelly mold Morris Minor which he paid £15 for and after some work sold for £325. Given this passion and interest linked to natural aptitude, it was clear his future vocation was going to be in the automotive world.
Simon Hope, Chairman of H&H Classics, says: We are delighted to have Nick join us just as the pandemic is ending and normal business can resume. His arrival could not be better timed.
Nick will now build on his own success to grow the H&H Classics brand in the UK and abroad. One of his first discoveries for H&H is a Jensen Interceptor barn find which will be sold at Duxford on September 8th.
