Simon originally qualified as an electronics engineer, but quickly moved into a sales role, holding senior sales positions in a number of semiconductor-related businesses including European Sales Director at PRI Automation, a US public company supplying robotics for semiconductor manufacture.
Combining a passion for motorsport and his commercial ability, Simon then took up a role at Pi Research (later to become Cosworth), managing Sales & Marketing along with Business Development, and leading the diversification into many emerging sectors including Marine, Defence, Aerospace and Off-highway.
Simon joined RML Group in 2014 as Commercial Director in charge of Sales, Marketing, PR and Customer Support functions. Instrumental in the procurement of several major contracts and key in the development of RML Group’s Energy Storage Design and Manufacturing Facility, Simon has led the commercial diversification of the business across market sectors as well as globally.
