Having started life and his early career as a professional footballer, his move off the pitch saw Simon delve into the world of sustainable solutions.
Simon joined Veolia 12 years ago, where he has worked in a variety of Sales Manager roles before beginning his current position of UK Regional & Local Sales Director in March 2019. As well as the local and regional sales and account management teams, he also has responsibility for customer experience. Simon’s private development teams support Veolia’s 50,000+ UK customer base, with an annual revenue portfolio of over £240m.
Simon is committed to driving sustainable innovation and supporting customers to reduce their carbon footprint, alongside developing circular projects including coffee cup recycling, reverse vending and the Deposit Return Scheme. He is a strong supporter of the government’s Resources & Waste Strategy, particularly the focus on reducing food waste and the reduction of single use plastics.
