I have had the pleasure of knowing Nick since my first day in the Market back in Summer 1998. Relatively fresh from the Army, I joined AIG just as Nick was on the point of leaving there for Chaucer. Nick took me round Lloyd’s gave me some irreverent pen-pictures of the then market personalities and off he went for 22years. Over the years he was an honest, ‘booming’ and professional ‘competitor/co-insurer’ within the market and huge fun to be with on the various market trips, broker-/client-days we overlapped on. I will miss him….not least because if I caught myself dozing off in a market meeting/conference I could always rely on Nick to be snoring louder than I! 😉 No longer….
