Having one Simon is good, having two Simon’s is bad planning, and usually having three Simon’s is asking for trouble but on this occasion we’d be lost without him. He’s been with us since 2009 and is loved by his clients and fellow employees.

JP is a key member of the team with a varied role in New Business, Training and Account Management. Some say jack of all trades master of none but in his case master of all.
