Q&A: Nick Wilson, commercial director, DG3/Leycol


Goalkeeping’s loss was print’s gain. Arsenal fan Nick is 32 and has spent 15 years in print. He was on Tottenham’s books as a kid, and then played semi-professional football subsequently while holding down the day job. Nick is married with two kids under the age of three, but still finds time for the odd round of golf.
