In 2015, Nick Fordham was re-introduced to rugby league superstar Adam MacDougall and his entrepreneurial wife Belinda. At that time, the recently retired MacDougall, who is also a well-regarded academic, had a dream of launching a health food business designed to change and disrupt the weight loss industry, which he saw as dominated by sugar-laced products. MacDougall predicted not only the current health awareness boom but also was several years ahead of the protein boom in the wellness space. Along the way, The Fordham Company became an equity partner in The Man Shake enterprise, seeing it become one of the fastest growing businesses in Australia over the past few years. Launched as an e-commerce business, the flagship products also find their home on shelves at Coles and Woolworths supermarkets as well as Terry White, Blooms and other selected pharmacies.

Following the highly successful launch of partner produce The Man Shake, our public relations skills helped establish an equally high profile for The Lady Shake, the brain child of Adam MacDougall’s wife Belinda.  Belinda is also Founder & CEO of The Kids Breakfast Shake.

In 2010 Nick Fordham was introduced to a helicopter pilot from the Northern Territory by the name of Matt Wright. Fordham quickly identified Wright for his incredible talent and skill in the craft of wrangling some of the world’s most dangerous animals whilst operating a jet ranger helicopter and filming a television program. After shooting various sizzle reels and pilots, Fordham landed Wright an opportunity to launch his new series on the Seven Network, that propelled the crocodile hunter into stardom. Signed by global giant National Geographic, Fordham and Wright went on to make four seasons of hit series Outback Wrangler, which is now shown in over 130 countries around the world. Other significant offshoot projects included filming in the jungles of Asia to the savannas of the Kruger National Park. Wright has recently launched his YouTube series and continues to work on television projects as well as collaborating with his incredible partners and sponsors. A social media giant, Wright is what we call in the business a bona fide superstar.

One of the world’s most historical rugby union competitions, Sydney’s the Shute Shield was on its knees in 2014 after being dumped from free-to-air television and unwanted by the game’s administrators. Seeing an opportunity to rescue the fledgling competition, Fordham, along with his business partner, stockbroker John Murray, made a play for the broadcast rights for the Shute Shield competition. Fordham and Murray secured the rights on a skilfully negotiated broadcast deal that ensured their ownership of the competition for the next decade. From there, they secured simulcast deals between the Seven Network and Fox Sports and focussed on building an incredible social media presence and luring some of the world’s biggest brands as sponsors. The Fordham Company turned around what was once a forgotten competition into a stellar product and by doing so, provincial grassroots rugby quickly became one of the hottest properties in the Australian sporting landscape. So much so that in 2020, Rugby Australia bought out Fordham and Murray‘s final five years of the broadcast deal as part of trying to secure their billion dollar rights deal.

The Fordham Company is well regarded when it comes to identifying, establishing and growing both talent and brands. This was once again tested when Fordham was introduced to the highly decorated New South Wales police homicide detective, Inspector Gary Jubelin - a legend within law enforcement, who has been at the forefront of cracking some of the most heinous crimes in Australian history. Jubelin was captured in the Nine Network series Underbelly but it wasn’t until the end of his police career where The Fordham Company skilfully assisted and supported Jubelin’s transition from cop to media, publishing and broadcasting sensation. Jubelin is now a bestselling author, thanks to his wildly successful book, I Catch Killers, which leveraged the offshoot podcast to the number one spot in Australia in 2020. Jubelin is now penning his second book, he has signed with 60 Minutes as a contributor and is also preparing his first stage show In partnership with touring giant TEG.
