Simon is the Founder and Publisher of Retail Gazette and Retailmoves.com. Prior to this he founded Quest Search and Selection in the UK in 1994, after having worked at Michael Page for 4 years. He was educated at Birmingham City University and Cranfield School of Management. Simon saw a gap in the market for a solid Retail job vacancy website and launched RetailMoves.com in 2000, followed by Retail Gazette in 2010, now the UK’s most well read online retail news publication. Simon oversees the UK and Dubai business operations but still finds time to recruit within Retail and Ecommerce. He is based in Dubai where he set up Quest’s Middle East office in 2011.
