A great network is about its people choosing to unite, and Simon’s role is to encourage that on a daily basis.
Following a 25-year career in advertising, spanning three major agencies—Ogilvy, FCB and JWT—and time spent living in Asia, Europe and America, Simon took over the reins at Brand Union in 2007, and has since been named Executive Chairman of Superunion.
During his time at Brand Union, he focused on building Brand Union’s reputation as a global brand agency that partners some of the world’s most ambitious clients, including Vodafone, IAG, Dell, JTI, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Reckitt Benckiser and Jaguar Land Rover.
Simon has a BA in history and philosophy and a CAM diploma from London University. He is also a Fellow of the IPA and board trustee of the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) in New York.
