Simon joined Hunter Group in 1995 and is jointly responsible for leading and guiding the firm's direction, development and growth opportunities.
The essence of Hunter Group is that it is a people business. Simon engages with both clients and colleagues with a clear understanding of how and where Hunter Group can add value.
Simon is a good listener with an open and approachable style
As a Director, Simon splits his time between consulting engagements and providing peer support and review to Hunter Group Senior Consultants. He appreciates the different knowledge and capabilities that exist within the Group, and encourages others to grow and expand their expertise.
Simon is a good listener with an open and approachable style that enables him to quickly establish a strong rapport with clients.
When working with colleagues and clients, he prefers an enabling style, working with and motivating colleagues and clients.
Simon is thoughtful and insightful, and almost irrespective of the level of complexity he's facing, he never seems to be short of crisp analysis and a clear way forward.
Endlessly curious, Simon brings this talent to good use in his consulting work. The challenge of exploring a new engagement, delving into problems to get an understanding of the real issues, forming a view, and then working with the client to successfully formulate a solution is what Simon enjoys most about his role.
Simon's not so apparent entrepreneurial streak has extended to other businesses, establishing two very successful start-up companies in complementary areas during his time with Hunter Group.
Simon has a Bachelor of Commerce and Administration, majoring in Accountancy and is a Chartered Accountant.
Simon likes to spend his private time with his family and also loves cycling, and, when the weather is good enough, gliding.
