Being a man of change, Simon looks at things differently. Reserved and understated, his depth of thought isn’t instantly obvious. Then when he speaks, you realise his mind has turned over ideas, explored new corners and reshaped them until they fit… while everyone else was talking. Outcome driven, determined and organised, he swings from strategic blue sky flying through the creative space, and then down into the detail of execution. Put simply, he’s a paradox.
Drawing on a background spanning FMCG, logistics and mining, Simon creates and implements business and systems change across Tandem – leveraging people, process, technology, communications, data analytics and digitisation. A team player by nature, his leadership is facilitative and transformative. After putting the strategic building blocks in place, he then inspires others to step up and invent their own new ways of doing things, thus creating meaningful and lasting change.
Simon has more than 30 years international and domestic leadership in FMCG and supply chain organisations, Mars, Inc and Linfox Pty. Ltd. He was also responsible for driving successful productivity improvements in the mining sector – both locally and internationally with Glencore. A proven strategic thinker, creator and doer, he brings an exceptional quality skillset across operations, logistics, marketing, market research, sales, S&OP, R&D, IT and procurement, that’s been practiced and honed across Europe, Africa, Asia, ANZ and the Americas.
