Nigel Brindley, MBA, IMC, C.Eng, MIMechE, MIET, MIFT has 30 years of technical and commercial experience in financing, developing and operating complex infrastructure assets. 

As a director of Barclays Private Equity, he led asset management and investor reporting for three infrastructure funds.  This built on a similar previous role as director of project investments at Mowlem plc where he recruited and led with full P&L accountability, the asset management team for its PPP/PFI portfolio.  In both roles, he developed and implemented robust governance and risk management systems.  He also mobilised new investments, turned-around underperforming assets and resolved complex contractual disputes.

More recently, Nigel has been providing asset management and turnaround support to infrastructure investors.  He is a non-executive director, chairs a hospital project company and is governor of an NHS foundation hospital trust.  Clients include Lloyds Bank, Better Capital, Equitix and Circle Health.

This experience is built upon an earlier career in strategic development, M&A and change management in manufacturing and construction.  He has led investment programmes, project managed major construction projects and led design teams at Mowlem, SGB Group and Arup.

Nigel is passionate about delivering the full benefits of an investment case.  After deal close, too often the focus on performance is lost and investment objectives compromised.  Reporting is retrospective resulting in opportunities to add value being missed and potential threats undetected.

As a practicing certificate holder of the Institute for Turnaround (recognised by major investment banks and private equity firms), he effectively analyses performance and works with management to identify and mitigate risk or define, implement and deliver recovery plans.  He strongly advocates collaborative working, building trust in inter-party relationships and acting with integrity.
