Following a 20-year career at KPMG, the latter 11 as partner, Simon took up several Group FD and general management appointments. He has since invested in 20+ early stage companies, taking on the role of chairman in several of them.
Simon is an early and significant Aeristech investor in his own right and has considerable experience as a director of private and publicly quoted technology companies. He has led large commercial deals and multi-million pound exits. Simon’s background includes experience in the Automotive sector over many years and he has recently worked with Richard Wall to develop a synopsis on the opportunities and importance of the China market.
The board of directors believe that Simon has the right blend of early stage investment experience, and management of technology companies to add significant value to the company.
