OUR EXECUTIVE TEAM

Meet our executive team who are here to support our partners at Harley Street BID.

Nicki Palmer

BID Director, Harley Street BID

Nicki Palmer has significant experience and knowledge of BIDs, having worked from the inception stages, through the ballot process and into the delivery of many successful BIDs across London. Under the Primera umbrella, Nicki took on the exciting challenge of developing the Harley Street Partnership in April 2020 and the Partnership became a formalised BID in December 2021. These were extremely difficult times to develop a BID due to the pandemic, however, Nicki is adamant that the Harley Street BID will really position itself as an effective tool ensuring our business community across the footprint is fully engaged. As Nicki will lead on planning of the future of the Harley Street BID area, she will strive to deliver and guarantee that the BID brings value, a sense of community, recognition for the wealth of medical expertise and is a collective voice for our local businesses. In her spare time, Nicki likes to spend time with her family, travel and indulge herself with dog walks and pub lunches!
