Board Director & Company Secretary

[/heading][divider line_type=”Full Width Line” custom_height=”32″][vc_column_text]Nick has been on the board at Coconut Creatives since late 2010 and assists the team with strategic direction and advice at board level.

With a strong and successful background in sales, primarily in the property and franchise sector, Nick was instrumental in launching and establishing Platinum Property Partners as the world’s first property franchise with a £350K investment.  With Nick’s strong, analytical eye for detail, aptitude for numbers, hugely successful franchising background and large business and investment portfolio, he is a long standing and valued member of the Coconut team. Occasionally we roll him out to be client facing as well! Nick also deals with the legal aspects of the business so that the rest of the Coconut board and team can focus on client management.

Spare Time Stuff

When he’s not working on Coconut Creatives or investing in property for clients, Nick loves to warm up for the Great North Run, which he completes each year for charity. He has also completed the London Marathon, scaled the three peaks and climbed Mont Blanc.

The Brainy Bits

Nick originally trained as a chartered surveyor and quickly moved into building a property portfolio, which is his passion. Nick has built an expanding number of businesses related to property investment. In doing this, he has transformed half-a-lifetime’s experience in property, sales insight and business aptitude into a £40million property portfolio, mostly on behalf of investor clients.

Marketing Assistant

[/heading][divider line_type=”Full Width Line” custom_height=”32″][vc_column_text]Our newest Coconut joins the family to add a new dimension to the business. Rachel came to us to carry out a week’s work experience and then stayed on as a part-time Marketing Assistant. With a vibrant and bubbly personality, Rachel has quickly established herself as a central part of the team, assisting with client activity and online marketing admin.

“The opportunity that Sarah has given me is amazing. Working with Coconut will give me invaluable experience in the Marketing Industry that few people of my age will have. Everyone I’ve met at Coconut have been welcoming and friendly and it’s been so easy to fit in. It’s like one big family.”

Watch out for Rachel as she is a rising star and has already proven very valuable within the business!

The spare time stuff

In her free time Rachel enjoys spending time with her family, particularly her 3 younger brothers and her sister.

“Being the oldest of five is manic, and I have to be the responsible one a lot of the time but there’s never a dull moment in our house as one of the younger ones is always keeping me entertained with something new and exciting.”

Reading is one of Rachel’s main hobbies and she will read anything from The Hunger Games to a good Nicholas Sparks romance novel.

The brainy bits

Rachel is keen to develop her marketing and business knowledge and so alongside working at Coconut Creatives she is undertaking English and Business Studies at college. This is to further develop and enhance her professional career with our team. There are many opportunities at Coconut Creatives for staff to undertake continued professional development and Rachel is just one example of this.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

 PA to Directors

[/heading][divider line_type=”Full Width Line” custom_height=”32″][vc_column_text]Born in Basingstoke, but brought up in the heart of the Cotswolds, Becky relocated to the South Coast with her family in the early 1980s.

After completing her studies she settled down to have a family 1 daughter and 3 sons, all of whom are grown up now aged between 28 & 20.

The Spare Time Stuff

Becky has a long-standing relationship with performance arts and can often be relied upon to “do a turn” if required. Although, she would not want to return to the days of singing for her supper!

She is also an avid follower of her sons’ rugby team and most Saturdays from October to April will find her cheering them on from the sideline, or making the after match food, or some other chore that is required.

Not one to back away from a challenge Becky has attempted the 3 Peaks twice, successfully completing it on the second attempt, “not bad for an old bird!”

Earlier this year she completed her PADI advanced open water diving course to support her love of snorkelling and more recently diving.

The Brainy Bits

As well as some very elderly GCE A Levels & O Levels, Becky returned to Higher Education and graduated from Southampton University with BSc (Hons) Social Sciences (Criminology & Psychological Studies) in 2005.

She brings a wealth of life experience to the table and feels that being PA to the Coconut Directors is not unlike keeping track on the family calendar.
