Having Simon on board has freed up Company Directors to concentrate on their particular areas of expertise. Knowing that our operational commitments are being managed by someone of Simon’s calibre is very reassuring as we lead the Company forward

Managing Director Richard Hudson says, “Business is booming and the creation of the role of General Manager is something we had been looking at for some time but we knew it was vital to recruit the right person. We believe that we have found that person in Simon. In the six months he has been at ReAgent we can already see the huge changes that he has made to the operational success at ReAgent. In the short time he has been here his impact has been noticeable. He is also a very popular member of the team.”

With his leadership and impressive verbal and written skills, Simon has improved communication throughout the Company whilst his planning and organisational methods together with LEAN Manufacturing background have facilitated quantifiable improvements in efficiency.

Prior to working at ReAgent, Simon was a Business Development Executive at The Manufacturing Institute, where his duties included developing bespoke training schemes for large companies, targeting their specified weaknesses and tailoring training development programmes to meet such weaknesses.

In addition to his background in LEAN Manufacturing Techniques, Simon’s skills include Management, Leadership and Six Sigma. Some of the previous positions held by Simon were Business Development Manager and Operations Manager. ReAgent feels that Simon’s background is ideally suited to perform the role of General Manager and help facilitate growth for the Company.

Technical Director Darren Wilson adds, “Having Simon on board has freed up Company Directors to concentrate on their particular areas of expertise. Knowing that our operational commitments are being managed by someone of Simon’s calibre is very reassuring as we lead the Company forward and help realise our aim of becoming the leading UK chemical manufacturer.”

A Cheshire-born man, Simon enjoys spending his spare time playing both football for his local team Barrow FC and cricket for Frodsham Cricket Club. Simon is a keen Liverpool football club supporter but says he will watch any team. Simon is married with a baby daughter.

About his new position Simon reflects, “Joining ReAgent has been a great career opportunity for me. I am particularly interested in developing the Business through its staff and feel that I have been able to bring my Business operations knowledge to the Company whilst maintaining excellent work standards.”
