Nick Finch

Nick became a Trustee of PSBT in March 2016. Nick has spent all his working life at the International Auction House Christie’s, which he joined after leaving school in 1982. Having started in the post room he is now Global Director for Auctioneers and EMERI Bid Departments.

Nick first got to hear about PSBT through a colleague who was chairman of the charity at the time. Our former chairman invited him to a Fixers event at the House of Commons where for the first time he saw the powerful impact that young people - given a voice - could have, not only to those in room, but society as a whole. Soon after this event Nick was invited to join the Fixers Development Board and then the Trustee Board. 

Nick brings to the board a passionate desire to see the sustainability and continued success of the charity. He is committed to the board achieving its objectives and brings with him robust corporate and private connections he has cemented over the years.

Nick enjoys all sports and socialising with friends. His role within Christie’s has enabled him to travel widely and experience many countries and cultures.
