Nicky Foulston is CEO of the City Law Firm Rosenblatt Solicitors. She was named Veuve Cliquot Businesswoman of the Year in 1997 when she was Chief Executive of Brands Hatch Leisure plc – she was, and remains, the awards youngest ever recipient. Nicky became Chief Executive of Brands Hatch in early 1990 when the business was valued at £6 million and built it into the largest organiser and promoter of motor sport in Europe. In 1996, she floated the business on the London Stock Exchange; and in 1999, she sold the business for over $195 million to Interpublic, the US marketing giant. Nicky has since run a private family office with private equity investments in the USA and Europe.
She was originally appointed to the Industrial Development Advisory Board in 2014.
