The Rainmaker

Nick was born in South Africa and educated as a lawyer. He migrated to Australia in 1995, then an investment banking career took him to London and a career in international property. 15 years later he returned to Goldman Sachs in Sydney with an American wife and two British children. After 25 years in investment banking, he wanted a fresh challenge. The move to Pepper to build out the Property business on a global basis was the perfect answer.


Most challenging experience

“Building a cross-border advisory business across multiple cultures and languages. Tough but fascinating.”


Nick in three words

Focused.  Unconventional.  Innovative.
