Nick said: "Throughout my career I have promoted the principle of developing young people from the start of their careers, recruiting school and college leavers and graduates.
"I believe in giving people, no matter what their background, the opportunity to realise their potential – because I started out as a trainee and have worked my way up to being the chairman of my own company.
"As a local businessman I have seen the value of partnerships between the public, private and community sectors, and I recognise the part that City College Plymouth has to play.
"The college has a pivotal role in Plymouth's prosperity and growth strategies and it will be an honour to do my bit in ensuring the College remains at the heart of the City's economic and social communities."
City College principal, Phil Davies, added: "Nick has been on the College Corporation for a few years now, and has actively promoted the work of the college in the city. As the chair I believe Nick will add a new dimension to our strategic leadership at a time when we are focussing on further developing the enterprise and employability skills of all our students."
Nick was born in Plymouth and trained to be a surveyor in the city. After a few years in Truro he returned to the city in 1990 to co-found Vickery Holman, a commercial property consultancy. He became the company chairman in 2005.
In addition to being a governor at City College Plymouth, Nick is also chairman of Havencare (Plymouth) Ltd and Routeways Centre Ltd; a trustee of the Plymouth Guild and a director for Brook Housing Ltd.
