Nick Holmes

Business Manager at Metro Bank Cambridge

Nick is the business manager at Metro Bank Cambridge and relationship manager to over 1,500 businesses across East Anglia. He started his career in the food and wine sector. Various roles included writing descriptions and tasting notes for 1,000s of SKUs, fine wine and en-primeur brokering, account management and hosting regular tasting events. After completing his WSET exams, he moved to London and worked for an independent merchant on the Brompton Road as content editor for the website whilst also supporting the day to day trade.

Nick joined Metro Bank in 2014 upon recommendation from a Local Director and quickly found that many of his skills directly translated well to Metro Bank’s ethos. Nick became a Chartered Banker in 2016 and moved to Cambridge as a Local Business Manager in 2017 to take on new challenges but also to be closer to family. He remains a keen foodie and enjoys keeping up with the ebb and flow of the wine trade.  Aside from that Nick is fascinated by the evolution of technology, especially during the early stages as an idea first becomes a business which makes Cambridge the perfect place to be.
