Mr Nick Sharples


I joined Barclays Bank on leaving school in 1975 and qualified as an Associate of the Institute of Bankers in 1982. I moved to Scarborough in 1991 to take up my first managerial position as a Corporate Manager, later becoming a Regional Business Manager. I joined Handelsbanken a Swedish owned Bank in 2008 and set up a new office in Scarborough, retiring in 2017 after 9 successful years.

During my time in Scarborough, I have been involved as a member of the Scarborough Cavaliers Rotary Club, undertaking many community projects. I also launched a very successful business breakfast club which had over 80 members while at Handelsbanken. In addition, I was, for a number of years, a Governor of Scarborough College. Presently I am a Director of Scarborough Ambassadors, a non-profit making organisation which raises the profile of the town and the opportunities available.

I am married to Joy; we have two grown up daughters living and working in London. I have multiple outside interests, as a member of Scalby tennis club, Ganton Golf club and Scarborough Rugby Club, I also enjoy cycling and walking.
