Channel 4’s TV series ‘Undercover Boss’ features high-flying executives who take extraordinary steps to ensure their companies are fighting fit by going undercover within their businesses. In the current third series, six new high profile bosses each surreptitiously join work forces in undercover missions to examine the inner workings of the business.
Episode 4, to be shown on Channel 4 on Tuesday 26 July at 9.00pm, features Managing Director Nikki King OBE, who goes undercover on behalf of the commercial vehicle distributor Isuzu Truck (UK) Ltd.
Well known and respected within the commercial vehicle industry, Nikki has worked her way to the top of the business ladder in the male dominated industry of trucks and yet only started working in a "serious job" at the age of 40, following a divorce. Nikki’s rise to the top has been meteoric but in these tough economic times the programme follows Nikki’s return to the ‘shop floor’ at dealership level as ‘Pauline’, while she attempts to gain an insight and understanding in order to help steer the company to even greater success.
