Chief Operating Officer
In his role as Chief Operating Officer, Empired, and Chief Executive Officer, Intergen, Simon works to bring out the best in our people to enable the best in our customers – helping them to deliver better experiences and better business as they reimagine, transform and evolve their organisations in order to thrive in a world of change and disruption.
Simon works closely with our leaders to deliver tomorrow’s advantage today to forward-thinking enterprises across Australia, New Zealand and Seattle, working in open and practical partnership with customers to create solutions for real business problems and make a positive impact through people innovation and technology enablement.
With more than 20 years’ experience in the technology sector in senior roles with some of New Zealand’s leading professional services organisations, Simon has a strong background in strategy development, business leadership, and business transformation.
Outside of work, Simon enjoys getting out on his road or mountain bikes and spending time skiing. In more relaxed moments, his favourite thing to do is walk his dogs on a crisp winter’s afternoon, then prepare a great meal and enjoy a glass of red in front of an open fire.
“As an organisation, we’re driven by a desire to drive real outcomes for our customers and bring real innovation to the picture.
For me, it's about creating a business where our people are empowered to be impactful with the customers that we're working with. I love seeing that passion coming through in our people, and the real difference it makes for our customers.”
