Between 2008-2015 Nick was Director of Regulatory Affairs at the Internet Advertising Bureau UK (IAB UK). His work included advocacy – both at UK and EU level – on privacy and data protection legislation (e.g. ePrivacy Directive / General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)) as well as developing good practice in digital advertising. Between 2013-2017, Nick chaired the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance (EDAA), the body administering EU industry’s self-regulatory initiative to boost transparency and user control in interest-based advertising.

In July 2017, Nick co-founded Entropy Data with ex-Unilever Marketing Director, Alex Tait, to specifically help brands with GDPR compliance and to adopt a ‘think privacy first’ approach.
