Chris Darlington joins Nicholls Colton as Commercial Director.


We are delighted to announce the appointment of Chris Darlington as a Commercial Director.

This key appointment further strengthens the Board, and will ensure that a robust commercial focus is maintained throughout the already successful business, as it continues to expand.

Chris brings to us a wealth of commercial, financial and business experience and acumen. His role will be key to the continued success of the business, and he will lead the newly formed Commercial Department. This will incorporate the current Accounts Department and Finance Director functions.

Chris was previously a Director at the accountancy firms ‘Mazars’, and prior to that, ‘RSM Tenon’. In this capacity, and for the past ten years, Chris has worked closely with Nicholls Colton Group’s Owners, Ian Elliot (CEO) and Alex Warwick (Chair).  Chris therefore has a thorough knowledge of the business, and the working relationship with Alex and Ian is already very well-established.

With the Appointment of Chris Darlington, the Board now comprises six Directors: Ian Elliot and Alex Warwick; Production Directors Mike Shelbourne and Nick Hutt, and Business Services Director Guy Anderson.
