Nigel Backwith


Nigel Backwith was a founding partner of The Miles Partnership. Through his own consulting business, he now acts as a senior advisor to the firm, consulting on a wide variety of matters spanning strategy, growth, compliance, digital transformation and cyber security. The firm benefits greatly from having one of its founding partners still working with the business, especially in communicating the values of the firm to our newer members.

An accomplished Executive Search consultant himself, Nigel’s remit is to lead innovation in the face of market change and to run our continuous improvement and digital programmes. We work hard to deliver innovation to our clients, and measure our success by the increasing number of successful outcomes we achieve and the feedback we solicit that says that our digital processes make us easy to do business with.

Nigel graduated in Electrical & Electronics Engineering at Imperial College, London University and had a 25-year career in IT and Telecommunications, Management Consulting and Venture Capital before moving into Executive Search in 1996.
