Biography

Nick Candy is a British entrepreneur and businessman best known for his role in some of the most high profile real estate projects in recent times.

In 1995, Nick & his brother Christian purchased their first property with the help of a £6,000 loan from their grandmother. Together they established Candy & Candy in 1999, which quickly went on to become one of the world’s leading luxury interior design firms. In April 2011, Nick became the sole owner and operator of the Candy & Candy business and further developed its reputation as a pioneer of bespoke and innovative design.

The company’s most high-profile project, One Hyde Park, revolutionised the residential property market worldwide, breaking industry records and setting new standards in luxury design and living. A remarkable achievement, the development continues to have a profound effect on the global real estate market today.

In 2015, Nick established Candy Capital, a family office to manage his personal business interests and companies, including Candy Ventures, a portfolio of global investments in technology, luxury fashion and sports, digital media, healthcare, biotech and natural resources.

The Candy & Candy business was renamed Candy Property in 2018 in order to align well with Nick's wider portfolio of companies and to more accurately reflect where the business stands today.

Nick graduated from Reading University with a degree in Human Geography. He then joined KPMG before pursuing a career in advertising at J. Walter Thompson, before moving to Dentsu Group Europe, where he became the company’s youngest director.

An active philanthropist, Nick, together with his wife Holly, recently established The Candy Foundation to further develop their charitable interests.
