He was responsible for the largest ever UK software sales record with Sonic 2, as well as establishing SEGA as market leafier in the emerging games market . In 1994 he left Sega to become Consumer Marketing Director at Sky UK where he stayed for two years, later moving to Ginger Television Productions as Managing Director (from 1996 to 1997). You might also remember him as the character “the bloke who knows what’s going on” from TFI Friday.

For the past decade, Simon has been the worldwide creative lead for Amazon. He was the first and only person to date, to be made Chief Creative Officer of the company. Under Simon’s creative and innovative leadership, the Amazon brand has reached new heights, churning out award winning ads and content. Two creative highlights include the 2020 Christmas ad ‘Ballerina’ and the Alexa Super Bowl campaign which garnered an Emmy nomination.

Prior to Amazon, Simon co-founded and built the brand LOVEFiLM, which was sold to Amazon, ultimately becoming the Prime Video platform of today.

A career in which he has received three Emmy nominations, hundreds of creative awards and even a letter of commendation from the Vatican for his Christmas 2016 Amazon commercial.
