Success Essex Board Member | Simarco Worldwide Logistics
I have been employed as Managing Director for Simarco International Ltd, which has its headquarters in Witham, Essex for over five years. During this time the business has grown organically and through acquisitions, now employing 380 staff across the UK with a turnover of £83m per annum.
Previously, I held senior positions within the Supply Chain industry for two more Essex based companies, Perry Ellis and Molton Brown/Kao Brands as well as working for Burberry at their head office in London.
I am also an Enterprise Advisor aligned with secondary schools to provide advise on how to bridge the gap between the Education sector and business and the skills businesses now require. Alongside this, I was a Governor for the two local secondary schools in Witham for five years.
Being selected to sit on the board of Success Essex resonates with my passion for Essex and enables me to ensure that the county gains the recognition and funding it deserves due to its diverse and entrepreneurial spirit.
I feel my expertise in Business, Logistics and Education will enable me to assist in the vision for Essex to improve its prosperity and productivity and deliver on our mission statement to be Dynamic, Resilient, Inclusive and Connected.
