Nick Coates – Chair

Nick qualified as a chartered accountant in 1984 with Arthur Andersen. Since then he has enjoyed a wide-ranging career in the private, not-for-profit and public sectors working for and with property, professional services and food entities. Since February 2007 he has been advising small and medium sized businesses on issues ranging from start up to succession. Nick moved to Bath in 2003 with his family, settling in Combe Down where he seeks to play an active role in the community including being part of Holy Trinity Church. He joined the board of Trustees of Bridge Care in September 2016 and became Chair in February 2021. He believes that it is vital that we all join together in ensuring older people in their latter years can live life to the full in surroundings as close as possible to home and is delighted that Bridgemead is seeking to achieve that.
