Simon is originally from the ‘Mainland’ (New Zealand’s South Island) — you can tell that because he says ‘Good as Gold’ which is a dead giveaway.
He grew up in Blenheim before moving on to Christchurch. Simon has a Diploma in Agriculture and Farm management from Lincoln University and has spent time in the fishing industry as well as some time as a cafe owner.
Simon worked for Homershams in Christchurch in his early days in instrument sales but he and wife, Ann, decided to move to Auckland to be closer to their granddaughters.
Simon’s present role is internal Sales Coordinator. In this role he ensures customers who phone, fax and email their orders are looked after in the best possible manner. He knows Teltherm’s product ‘inside out’ and is popular with customers due to his wide product and industry knowledge.
Simon is a no-nonsense sort of guy. He loves his pets and enjoys the beaches on the Whangaparaoa Peninsula where he lives. His favourite pastime is spoiling his granddaughters rotten — and they have him wrapped around their little fingers.
