I worked with Simon in the implementation of our systems at a mutual client. Having someone like Simon there managing the project was fantastic. Simon was quick on the uptake and never needed to ask the same question twice and meant that we found the implementation process extremely smooth.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Simon to any company and when we we have been discussing other companies projects internally I have heard the term "someone like Simon" positively used more than once!

Simon has worked closely with our company over the last 12 months. He has restructured our finance function and provided us with intelligent and instant management reporting information that we now question how we ever managed to operate the business without!
Simon has brought a great balance of knowledge, experience and also a totally approachable and considerate manner to our senior team, we would consider him to be a complete asset to any business.

Simon came on board as interim FD in early Oct 2018, when the company was about to kick-off its budgeting process. Simon added value from day 1: he fully immersed himself into the process, managing the process end-to-end - Simon rolled up his sleeves and had full ownership. Additionally, Simon managed a team of 12 FTE on both tactical as well as strategic finance matters. Simon brings along a rather unique skill-set: analytical rigour, attention to detail while never losing sight of the big picture. He immediately became the "business partner" and sounding board I had needed while further building the team. He was extremely well perceived across our stakeholders: colleagues within the head office, in our 80 sites, our head office and our shareholders. Besides a water-proof budget, Simon identified several low hanging fruits that generated a six/figure run-rate in cost savings as well as leading several projects (such as identifying the right partner for an HR and payroll system). I am looking forward to working with Simon again in the future, an authentic, talented and FUN individual to work with.
