 "Simon was a great pleasure to work with: whip-smart, extremely strategic, creative, and a great communicator. It can be a challenge sometimes for specialists that have agency/creative background to think big-picture, systematically and strategically. Simon actually excels in these areas. He also listens well and is able to translate what the company/client says and needs into actionable solutions. He delivered fresh perspective when we needed them most and he's great at seeing the larger story amidst fragmented data, complex business models and varying points of view. His insights helped us to evolve and transform our brand strategy, setting the stage for breakthrough creative and brand ID systems. I look forward to working with Simon again."  Alexis Cardona,   Global CMO,  Transitions Optical
