Founder & Head of Sound
Nigel’s career started in music studios where he was fortunate to find himself working with some amazing artists and mentors before founding Hackenbacker in the 1980s.
Hackenbacker was originally a sound transfer company with sound editing and mixing added within five years of it starting operating. Nigel is proud to have worked on many ground breaking and landmark projects and to this day enjoys working on projects sometimes seen as a little ‘out of the ordinary’!
He is a keen promoter of bringing new talent into the industry with the correct training and is proud of the unique family atmosphere at Hackenbacker.
