Simon has over 30 years’ experience in financial services predominantly centred on business development and property lending. After starting his career in 1985 working for NatWest, Simon moved around the Midlands to broaden his knowledge by leading business development teams for Bank of Ireland, Yorkshire Bank and latterly leading the Handelsbanken in Leicester.
After joining Cambridge & Counties Bank in 2012 as its first Business Development Manager, Simon took over responsibility for the national Property Finance team in 2015 and has been at the centre of the Bank’s successful balance sheet growth due to his commitment to delivering a service led and broker-centric business. In 2017 responsibility for the Asset Finance sales team was added to his duties with Simon joining the board as the Bank’s Chief Development Officer.
Outside of the Bank, Simon is a very proud Non-Executive Trustee of Age UK Leicestershire and has acted as the charity’s treasurer for over the last 10 years.
