Former PR impresario Nick Hewer started off in public relations in the mid '60s. Heading up his own PR company until its sale in 1998, Nick built an impressive client list which, for over 20 years, included the secretariat of His Highness the Aga Khan, based in Chantilly, France.
Nick first came across Sir Alan when his PR company was chosen to represent Amstrad back in 1983. Soon taking care of Sir Alan's profile across all business and personal dealings, Nick became a trusted ally and firm friend to the tycoon, playing an integral part in the management structure at Amstrad.
Friends throughout both careers, Sir Alan laid on a dinner at The Dorchester for Nick and 100 guests to celebrate his official retirement. Says Nick: "Sir Alan is a very generous friend. The best thing about working for him was there was always something going on - he has vibrancy about him".
Nick's career has taken him all over the world; in his retirement he still pursues his life long passion of world travel. He has a home in France where he indulges his other passion, for tractors.
