In the summer of 2011 Simon partnered with Patrick Goodwin to grow Edenbrook Partners to become the recruiter of choice to the insurance market.  Having graduated from Manchester in 1997, Simon had 3 years in the hospitality industry before starting his recruitment career back in 2001, recruiting accountants into financial services. He has subsequently spent the past 8 years focussing on the insurance market placing senior insurance specialists and executives.

During his time in recruitment Simon has managed and built a number of successful recruitment teams and businesses across all areas of financial services.  Simon’s relationships and knowledge of the insurance market give him a key insight into recruitment activity in the City allowing him to advise both clients and candidates on the approach to their hiring and job searches respectively.

Simon lives in London with his wife and 3 children and enjoys nothing more than indulging in his passion for cooking and specifically bread-making.  He is also a dedicated long suffering supporter of ‘the mighty Tigers’ or to everyone else Hull City F.C.
