Simon’s role involves working with the RSM international network of firms on global initiatives, helping to enhance the support and services we provide to clients who want to expand internationally. He is a Board member of RSM International.
This international focus led Simon to collaborate with RSM US Chief Economist Joe Brusuelas. The pair have taken their global economy roadshow all over the UK, Europe, and North America, advising middle-market businesses on trade issues, risks, economics and trends.
Ask Simon to describe his working style and he’d say collegiate. In his own words:
My default approach to problem solving is teamwork, making sure everyone is engaged and heard and that we're constantly sharing ideas. It’s a challenge, and I like challenges.
And that love for a challenge doesn’t stop at work.
Simon’s a keen road cyclist and charity fundraiser who often combines the two to great effect. His nine-day, 1,000-mile Land’s End to John O’Groats cycle raised £18,000 for two children’s hospices.
