Nick Horswell

Nick joined SI Partners in 2005 and is Group Chairman. Nick provides strategic advice to the firm’s partners.

Nick spent 16 years working in the media departments of various full-service advertising agencies, before leaving in 1989 to set up an independent media agency, PHD. After selling the successful PHD business to the AMV Group, by the end of 2000, PHD had become a group of eight companies, employing 240 people, turning over nearly £400 million a year.

In early 2002, Nick left to set up Uncle, offering consultancy support (‘uncle-ing’) to small and medium sized creative agencies and the people who run them. Nick has since worked with companies in every sector of marketing services, and more recently with a number of other consultancy businesses.
