Nicholas Associates Group Completes Board Realignment

Leading Talent selection company Nicholas Associates Group has implemented a restructuring of its Board of Directors following the recent departure of the CEO.

The move sees Lisa Gainsford, who joined the Rotherham-based company 5 years ago as Chief Executive Officer transfer into a new role as Strategic Development Director to further support the growth plans of Nicholas Associates Group.

In a strategic realignment of the Board, the group will now be led by Bruce Allen, FD who has been with the business 22 years, Tony Boorman, Managing Director of Stafforce with 20 years’ service and Paul Brammer Managing Director of Nicholas Associates who joined the business back in 2010.

Following the latest filed accounts which report Nicholas Associates Group breaking through £100m turnover the restructure is part of an on-going expansion plan which has seen the business set significant growth targets in terms of geographical coverage, headcount and revenue.

Nick Cragg, founder and owner said the restructure puts the company in a position to realise its expansion plans.
Mr Cragg said: “We have some ambitious plans for our Group of companies and I am a firm believer that those will not be achieved unless we have the right people in the right places.”

Tony Boorman started his career with 8 years in the Fresh Produce industry; his last role being sales and account management for major high street retailers, wholesalers, and caterers. In 1997 Tony moved into the Recruitment Sector and in 2001 joined Nicholas Associates Group. He said “I was asked to join the board in 2008 and in 2013 became the leader of the Stafforce brand. When I started working for Nicholas Associates Group, we turned over £7 million and now we turnover in excess of £100 million. I am so proud of our work family and how dedicated they are to candidates and clients, truly believing that what we do changes peoples’ lives”.

Managing Director Paul Brammer stated, “The business has been on an exciting journey over the last few years and I am privileged to be part of the next period of achieving our growth objectives, working alongside such talent right across the Group.”
