NB About us .jpg


Nb1 Limited was formed in July 2004 to meet a developing need in the UK public and private sector marketplace for expert and experienced executive support services.

Nb1 identified a niche in the market for the suite of services that we offer. We quite simply fill gaps and needs that exist in executive teams when specific situations arise in companies from time to time. The key ingredient of our success is that we provide experience, expertise and specialist knowledge immediately to our clients. We work professionally and confidentially with and on behalf of our clients to help them achieve the business objectives agreed for our engagement.
