Simon joined Sisk in 2018 as the Regional Director responsible for core activities in Birmingham and the Midlands
Simon's wider business focus is as a keen supporter of people; from his FRICS and FCIOB support and development responsibilities to his wider role and passion for driving the Skills, Employment and Apprentice agenda in Birmingham and the Midlands
