Simon was born in the UK, but has lived in the USA since 2001 (now 16 years later being an Anglo / American citizen with an Anglo / American wife but two very American kids!)
Since moving to the US he has lived in Chicago and Connecticut, but moved to Raleigh 3 years ago when his firm acquired a company in Durham. He has an undergraduate honors degree in Urban Estate Management, completed a full-time MBA in 2000/1 and is currently working for an international investment management company.
His employer is a leader in Socially Responsible Investing (‘SRI’) and was recently elected to the Green Bond Principle Executive Committee, being active in organizing financing for numerous green initiatives.
He enjoys anything to do with the outdoors and nature; and with a veterinarian for a wife has a menagerie of animals that takes up much of their free time.
