Simon assisted in buying an undisclosed wholesale and consumer goods company that had only previously been trading internally within a large corporate organisation.
In this national role, Simon created new external businesses including the creation of an ecommerce platform and moving the sourcing of manufacture from the UK to the Far East, which lifted profit margins by over 10 per cent.
In addition, a board of directors was appointed and new HR and finance structures put in place. The company also made three acquisitions and explored the raising of corporate finance to expand further.
