National Numbers would like to say Goodbye to Simon Tse.

The DVLA Chief Executive is leaving his post to join the Department of Work and Pensions as Contracted Customer Services Director, according to a notice circulated by Simon Tse himself.

In the notice, Tse said: “the decision to move on was a difficult one. I am immensely proud of all we have achieved at DVLA in the five years I have been here”

The changes are set to take effect on March 31st.

Simon Tse has been a hugely positive influence for the DVLA since joining in 2008 and Chief Operating Officer, and has been a large part of the agencies move to digital systems in recent years.

Chairman of National Numbers and CNDA (Cherished Number Dealer Association), Eric Craggs, has been very impressed with Simon Tse’s legacy at the DVLA.

“Mr. Tse was the first person of his authority to meet with CNDA members regarding cherished transfers,” said Eric Craggs. “I found his influence to the DVLA and the number plate industry to be very positive.”

Tse joined the DVLA in 2008 following a successful run at Virgin Media as first a Managing Director for Wales and West, and then as the UK Business Board Director.

The Swansea born and educated man is also a known contributor to many charities and currently sits as a Board Member for Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centre and as Non-Executive Director of the Hill Community Development Trust. He also plays an active role for Ty Hafan Children’s Hospice.

DVLA’s website notices Simon Tse as having “delivered the Agency’s best ever operational performance, whilst managing down cost, headcount and sickness absence levels.”

“It is unfortunate to see him move on,” said Eric Craggs. “We hope Simon’s successor will be as helpful to CNDA members as he was.”
