With 16 years in journalism and two successful businesses behind him, Nick knows exactly what buttons need to be pushed to spread your company’s message and boost the bottom line.

Having made a killing in the property market, he and his wife Helga set up a restaurant in Teignmouth that quickly established an annual turnover of more than £350,000.

Instrumental in this success was an aggressive marketing campaign conducted by Nick that helped turn a small café trading under the VAT threshold into a magnet for the area’s discerning diners.
This included creating a website and establishing mutually beneficial contacts with a range of complementary local businesses and organisations. The Owl and the Pussycat was sold less than three years later, at the end of 2007, for a six-figure profit.

Nick’s parallel career in local journalism featured stints as a sports reporter and deputy sports editor at the Express & Echo in Exeter followed by spells as the Echo’s deputy chief sub-editor and, latterly, production editor of weekly stablemate The Mid Devon Gazette.  His flair for design contributed greatly to the Gazette being voted the region’s top weekly in 2009.

Nick is passionate about sport in general, and golf and Exeter City in particular, when he can fit them in around work and entertaining two kids under the age of three. Just don’t ask him about art house cinema or old indie music, because then he’ll bore you into a coma.
Damien spent more than a decade in local journalism, firstly as a reporter with the Sidmouth Herald and latterly as deputy chief sub-editor at the Express & Echo in Exeter, where he honed his penchant for design.
This experience has equipped him with an
in-depth understanding of just how the media operates and, after the swingeing cuts of recent years, a real desire to put that knowledge to good use outside the confines of an industry in meltdown.
A veritable sports fanatic, Damien is especially keen on football, golf and horseracing. During his time at the Echo, he compiled a weekly racing page  and for the last six years he has been a member of the Board of Society which has overseen Exeter City’s return from the brink of oblivion to the fizzy heights of Coca-Cola League One. In this time, Damien has played a key role in helping the St James’s Park club to attain vital publicity

In this time, Damien has played a key role in helping the St James’s Park club to attain vital publicity
throughout the local media, as well as on a national level. 
Over recent months, he has  concentrated his efforts on publicising the Grecians’ Pitch In campaign, which in little more than six months has raised nearly £100,000 towards the cost of a new playing surface at the Park.
Damien was born and brought up in the East Devon seaside resort of Sidmouth and is passionate about the county in which he has spent the vast majority of his 41 years. He is hoping Goal will provide him with plenty of opportunities to showcase an area he holds in such great affection.
