Nicholas Radbourn HewerBorn: Friday 17th March 1944 (age: 78)
Former PR impresario Nick Hewer began his career in the mid 1960s. Heading up his own company until its sale in 1997, Nick built an impressive client list featuring many British and international organisations.
Nick first met Lord Sugar in 1983 when his PR firm was chosen to represent Amstrad. He was soon taking care of the tycoons profile across all business and personal dealings and went on to become a trusted ally and friend.
Nick's career has taken him all over the world and in his retirement he still pursues his lifelong passion for travel. He has often combined this with his benevolence, once driving a 20 year-old Renault 4L solo from London to Mongolia for charity and taking part in a Children in Need trek from Istanbul to Almaty in Kazakhstan.
As a patron of Hope and Homes for Children, Nick helps promote this British charity and has worked for them in Romania and Rwanda. He also has a home in France where he indulges his other passion - vintage tractors.Information: BBC
