John has been involved in the Cleaning & Support Services Industry for over 40 years. His drive and enthusiasm have taken the company from a small, family run operation to the successful national Facilities Management business it is today.

In 1995, NIC launched its pilot franchise in order to meet the demands of a rapidly growing customer base. This ensured the business could deliver quality services nationwide, whilst constantly developing the range of services on offer.

In the past 23 years, John has built a thriving network of franchisees across the UK, delivering a range of Facilities Management services to thousands of clients in both the public and private sector.

John is a passionate believer and supporter of ethical franchising and in his new role as BFA Chairman he will be championing this through his work with the BFA. Ethical franchising is the cornerstone of NIC Services Group’s focus, ensuring all of its franchisees share the same values, as well as the desire to run a successful business.

John said “I am honoured to become the new BFA Chairman. We have worked closely with the BFA for many years and have a very strong relationship with them. As the voice of ethical franchising within the UK, the BFA play a pivotal role in the continued growth of franchising within the UK economy. Franchising provides a tried and tested business model to new business owners and I am looking forward to supporting the continued success and expansion of the industry.”

Outgoing Chairman, Trevor Brocklebank said “I am delighted for John on his election as chair. He will bring knowledge and strength to the role to support the Board to continue to build on their objectives and ensure the BFA continues to grow and remain at the very top of the franchise industry.”

John Pinnick, NIC Services Group Managing Director said “We are delighted for John on this new role with the BFA. Our management franchise model is underpinned by a commitment to excellence. Ethical franchising is at the heart of NIC and I know that John will be advocating these values for franchising throughout the UK.”
