Blackpool Development Plans Speakers

Nick Payne, Managing Director; NikalNick Payne Resized

Nick trained with leading leisure experts Christie & Co, and returned home from time in London in 1998 to establish development company Westport Developments, the company behind Manchester’s Deansgate Locks.

Since cutting his teeth on several major regeneration projects in Manchester, Nick established Nikal with co founder Alan Murphy. Nick is the md of Nikal and, as well as running a diverse development portfolio in the UK and now in China, he is also patron of the Lowry theatre, Salford, an avid supporter of the NSPCC, director of The Dunham Trust, a primary education academy and a non exec director of OMEGA Warrington on behalf of RBS.

Since returning home in the mid-nineties from ‘a working apprenticeship’ in London, Nick Payne has been at the heart of Manchester’s reinvention as ‘the original modern city’, first as a founder director of Westport, subsequently in a similar role with Ask Developments and now as MD of Nikal. Nick’s first big Manchester project, Deansgate Locks, is fast becoming the emblem of a regenerated city; having been featured in numerous magazine articles, TV programmes and advertisements.
