CEO - Residents Insurance Services
Simon started his career in 1990 at Great Portland Estates plc, where he worked for eight years rising to be Insurance Manager. During that time he developed a close understanding of client side issues, and had to deal with significant claims resulting from the Baltic Exchange and Bishopsgate bombings.
Taking this property experience into the world of insurance broking in 1999, he has developed a loyal and diverse client base within the property and construction sectors, having worked for a number of property focused insurance brokers. After a five years mostly outside of the insurance industry, he has returned in June 2020 as CEO of Residents Insurance Services, part of a much larger property group with diversified interests. He sees himself as a property man who does insurance, rather than the other way around, which allows him to strongly represent his client’s interests to underwriters.
Outside of work, Simon is married with two grown up daughters, and is heavily involved with Rugby Union, both as an increasingly occasional player and administrator with Huntingdon Rugby Club and East Midlands Rugby Union. He is also on the Court of Assistants of the Worshipful Company of Feltmakers, and the Managing Director of The Rugby Club of London, a virtual rugby club putting on charity and fundraising lunches, dinners and other rugby related events.
