If there’s one thing every single one of our clients will have in common, it’s their opinion on the Elite Closing Academy team.

MATT ELWELL

CO-FOUNDER OF THE ELITE CLOSING ACADEMY AND MASTERMIND SALES TRAINER

Without doubt, the best closer to walk planet earth and an incredibly entertaining human being.

Matt loves animals and is a keen hedgehog coservationist. 

Other than his ‘computer-phone’ Matt is incapable of using any kind of technology!

Nick james

CO-FOUNDER OF THE ELITE CLOSING ACADEMY

Daring to the extreme, great leader and a highly effective relationship builder.

Loves sport, especially Aston Villa FC and golf, both of which are poorer than he’d like them to be.

ADAM ASHBURN

OPERATIONS DIRECTOR & HEAD OF MARKETING

AKA: Nick’s no.2

Known for having no filter between mind and mouth, Ad has been with Nick since the start and is the one who steers the operations and marketing side of the business.

He’s also a serious golf badger…

NICKI VEE

EVENTS DIRECTOR
 

Nicki Vee is a world-class coach, with an illustrious background in the corporate world.

And when it comes to event logistics, there is NO ONE close to Nicki Vee in expertise and strategy.

She’s also a strict non-drinker (apart from when she’s drinking).

TONY VEE

CLIENT COMMUNICATION DIRECTOR

Tony is the spiritual leader of the team and a world-class mindset coach.

His main focus is on enhancing client experience and ensuring Mastermind is delivered to the highest standard.

Other than that he drives a Tesla, drinks Bulletproof Coffee and is rarely seen with shoes on.

SHELLEY HEGARTY

EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT

Shelley manages Nick’s life, which frees him up to do what he does best! (i.e. NOTHING related to admin work!)

Shelley’s so organised and caring, she’s become known as the team ‘mum’.

JACK DUGGAN

HEAD OF SALES & CLOSING
 

A semi-professional footballer, Jack heads up the sales team (pun intended) and is a highly trained elite closer.

He manages and trains the sales team daily and oversees all sales and closing operations.

(That’s when he’s not on holiday… which isn’t often.)

YUSUF MCNULTY

CLIENT COMMUNICATION DIRECTOR

Yusuf, we call him Mac, is to Adam what Adam is to Nick.

He one of the brains behind the marketing strategy of all campaigns and is a powerful copywriter and deep thinker.

His nickname is ‘Wanderer’, and if he hangs around long enough you can ask him wh… He’s gone.

AMBER FALLON

SYSTEMS & PROCESSES EXPERT

In a league of her own, Amber ensures all systems are automated and all forms of technology are talking to each other.

She is nothing short of an EXPERT when it comes to having bulletproof systems in place.

Simply put, when she speaks the rest of us listen.

MARC BLEASDALE

EVENT EXPERIENCE/FACILITIES EXPERT
 

Marc (with a C) is always visible on event days and ensures clients receive nothing less than 5 star treatment. 

He’s an official people lover and will do anything for anyone. 

Marc also has a second life as a stand-up comedian, but the less said about that the better.

AMELIA ASHFORD

CLIENT COMMUNICATIONS

Amelia is the ‘voice’ of Expert Empires, and she makes sure every single client knows what’s happening at every moment.

Never far from her phone, she’s the one who’ll be calling you to remind you of important dates and to make sure you’ve got everything you need.

She’s a self-proclaimed ‘golf widow’ and is known to have a liking for Prosecco.

ERIN TOMLIN

EVENT COORDINATOR

Erin is a world-class coordinator – making sure things happen and nothing gets missed amidst the chaos.

And as Nicki Vee’s no.2, her focus is to make sure all our events are organised and executed to an elite standard.

(She also makes great cups of tea.)

MATT SELBY

SALES EXECUTIVE
 

Matt (we call him “Muscles”) is a former professional ice-hockey player (yes – it’s played in the UK!) and there’s only one word to describe him: Winner.

He’s quickly become an invaluable member of the team and is always working on himself.
