In his early career, he built a reputation for quickly delivering, accurate operational & financial reports. As a technical resource within the business team, it didn’t take long before he was discovered & adopted by the IT department.  A trend that repeated itself throughout this career.

Simon’s ability to talk the business language & translate into technical language has been a key skill & used on every project since.

Most notably, Simon developed a data solution for a Trade Credit broker which was shortlisted for an insurance industry award for innovation. Simon led the data team which collected and visualised the information for self-service analysis. This solution changed the business process, improved client service & retention & optimised working with carriers to create new products. 

At the end of the first year, the UK revenue increased by $1 million therefore, the solution was adopted across the EMEA business.

From this success, Simon was asked to join a complex project that would consolidate 52 data warehouses into a single European wide data warehouse. While working towards the end solution; all aspects of process design, governance, data law, development practise & technology architecture was tackled.
