Simon joined Formative Content after a long career in television news. He joined the BBC in 1994 as a junior producer before quickly progressing to the position of senior programme editor.
In 2006, Simon moved to Qatar where he was a senior member of the launch team at Al Jazeera English. As Executive Producer, Simon led the coverage of stories including the election of Barack Obama, the Arab Spring and the war in Syria.
In his spare time Simon flies drones (he’s a qualified pilot), sails his classic wooden boat (he’s a qualified sailor) and ferries his daughter all over the place (he’s not a qualified taxi driver but often feels like one).
