Nicholas "Nick" Merry (born Woodstock, Oxfordshire, England) is a British businessman who made his money in the United States running a now defunct Florida-based dental biotechnology company called MicroDenteX as well as investment in gemstones in Guinea.

Until 2 October 2008, Nick Merry was chairman of Oxford United Football Club,[2] the club he has supported all his life. He played youth football for the club in the 1970s before a knee injury ended his career prematurely. He also played football for England at schoolboy level.[3]

Merry is part of a consortium, Woodstock Partners Limited (or WPL) headed up by Ian Lenagan which bought the club for £1 from former chairman Firoz Kassam. They are also in negotiations to buy the Kassam Stadium from Kassam.
