Nick Goodwin

Nick Goodwin is the owner and Managing Director of NHG Timber Ltd. Following a seven year stint in Ghana and Liberia in the 1970ís, Nick returned to the UK and set up his own business in 1981. He has overseen the growth of the company into an international agency for tropical and temperate hardwoods, selling to over 65 countries worldwide. His particular area of expertise is West Africa, a part of the world with which he has great affinity. In his spare time he can usually be found either on the golf course, the hockey pitch or at the home of his beloved football club, Crystal Palace.

Stuart McBride

Stuart McBride has been with NHG Timber Ltd since 1995, a pillar of strength and font of knowledge to all within the company. To those who donít know Stuart well, he is a serious, hard working and focused professional. However, to those in the know, Stuart has his wilder side. Away from the NHG world of timber, he can often be found on his Ducati motor bike or playing his bass guitar with his band in front of his adoring fans.

Guy Goodwin

After reading Business Studies and French at Bristol, Guy embarked on a career in hotel management working for Exclusive Hotels. However, over a long and liquid lunch, Guy decided to join the family business for a year. He was promptly sent to all the toughest countries in the world to either make or break him. Happily, seven years later, and now a Director of the Company, Guy is a true timber industry professional. He currently spends three months of the year travelling in Africa, Middle East and USA and in his spare time plays as much golf, cricket and hockey as he can.

Ben Goodwin

Ben Goodwin joined the trading team in 2006 as a European hardwood trader. Before joining NHG he had gained a rounded knowledge of the trade by working for sawmills in France and North America and for one of the larger UK importers. His passion for European timber is only matched by his passion for sport. Out of the office, come rain or shine, he plays for his local cricket team during the summer months and hockey team throughout the winter. Ben is also an avid Crystal Palace FC fan, following the team home and away whenever he can work it around his timber and sporting commitments.
