Nicky recently joined the Subscan team, as our latest Business Development professional.  Having managed Operations, Fleet, and Customer Service teams in her family business in South Africa for 12 years, Nicky moved to Leeds with her family in 2015. With nine years’ experience in the UK construction industry, spanning demolition, surfacing, civils, and recycling, Nicky has also been involved in Health and Safety, operations, key account management, and ISO accreditations. Her passion lies in people and delivering stellar service to internal and external stakeholders, which makes her ideal for her new role within Subscan.

Nicky’s key achievements include growing the Small Works Division’s revenue from £20,000 to £200,000 per month in 2022, achieving a 27% month-on-month GP. She also successfully introduced an internal newsletter, aiding strategic change management for a successful ISO audit.

In operations, Nicky mobilised a multimillion-pound site within three months, making it operational in the first month. Managing a startup project for warehousing, packing, and distributing school textbooks in South Africa showcased her versatility. Additionally, Nicky upgraded ISO 2008 Quality Standards to ISO 2015 Standards and achieved the highest increase in sales for the team over 12 consecutive months in key account management.

Outside work, Nicky, and her husband, along with her two children, enjoy the scenic routes along the Leeds/Liverpool canal, cycling and creating cherished family memories during the summer months.
