Simon is an energetic and creative sustainability specialist with a strong track record of advising large businesses in the FMCG sector. He understands grocery supply chains and has significant experience of strategy development, interpreting metrics, and communicating concepts to non-technical audiences. Simon is responsible for engagement at 3Keel, and leads facilitation and training projects for the business.
Prior to founding 3Keel, Simon followed a more conventional career than Tom and Richard. After a couple of years teaching in Japan, Simon began his consulting career 9 years ago at a large firm advising farmers on Cross Compliance, managing a team of eco-designers for the Envirowise programme and supporting Defra to promote water efficient technologies to UK businesses.
Until early 2013 he was consultancy director at a sustainability consultancy specialising in environmental metrics, where he spent much of his time working alongside clients to help to define problems and develop solutions. During that time he worked across all sectors, but latterly focussed on consumer goods supply chains.
