Simon brings a calming influence to chaotic situations. Whilst being supportive of team members he does not shy away from difficult conversations or making difficult decisions where underperformance exists. He has the ability to identify the key issues in underperforming entities and actions required to bring around performance improvement. One of his key strengths is building a strong team around him that are loyal to him and the cause, a must for any successful CEO. He has a deep knowledge of the healthcare sector and is an experienced operator in turnaround environments. During his tenure at Astonbrook Care Simon has delivered a significant improvement in service standards and financial performance. Working with Simon in difficult circumstances has been a positive experience.

I have been working for Simon over the last year, during this time he has shown real leadership and has successfully brought a new team together whilst dealing with some very real immediate business challenges.

Commercially driven yet calm and measured, he is passionate about improving and driving the business. Simon is always open to new ideas, receptive and will listen to all views adapting his thinking if there is a better way,

He has extensive knowledge and understanding of the Healthcare Sector, a proven track record for company turnaround. He is a great "coach leader" bringing out the best in people, and is very straight forward to deal with. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with him.
