Founders & Leaders

Nick Edwards

Managing Director & Founder

I founded White Space ~15 years ago to dedicate my career to delivering fascinating consulting projects which help businesses grow. We’ve built a team of seriously sharp people who have a unique set of market and data analysis skills perfect for helping clients make better market investment decisions. We help clients make better and quicker decisions to enter new markets, re-energise existing markets, innovate, develop new propositions and optimise customer operations. I've also grown White Space from a start-up with a big idea into the UK's leading B2B growth consultancy with clients turning over a combined £650bn. I'm currently heavily involved in major strategy programmes in Manufacturing, Technology, Utilities, Outsourcing and Not for Profit. I also look after White Space's Big Data proposition.

John Bee

Managing Director & Founder

I'm passionate about helping organisations grow. Exploring adjacent markets, developing new propositions, entering new countries, finding the 'big idea': I've helped many of the world's leading companies in these areas, as well as high growth ventures and amazing charities. I've also grown White Space from a start-up with a big idea into one of the UK's leading growth consultancies with clients turning over a combined £1 trillion. I founded and run White Space’s pro bono practice, which helps inspirational charities including Shelter, Helen & Douglas House, DEBRA and CHICKS.
