Nigel Goodhew

Managing director Nigel Goodhew

Nigel started his career as a commodity trader in Souflett; a French agro / industrial / shipping giant and one of the largest purchasers of grain in the UK.

With this experience in agriculture, Nigel became Development Director of RidgeWind in 2002 and helped to build the company from zero value to the 6th largest independent developer of on-shore wind energy in the UK with over 200MW of consented sites. This allowed Hg Capital to sell the Company inline with their ambitious expectations and targeted date.

Thanks to his family farming background, he deeply understands farmers, landowners and the complex and unique industry in which they operate.
