Programme & Development Consultant
Simon is a programme and development consultant with RTS Group, working primarily on our Mercedes-Benz Van Talent programme. Simon acts as field mentor for the Van Talent trainees, supporting them as they work through the intensive course.
Simon joined us after a 20 year career in automotive, which started when he left school and began a five-year technicians’ apprenticeship with Ford. On completion, he spent some years with a Nissan dealership, before joining Hewlett Packard Enterprise, which was contracted to provide technical, customer experience and dealer process support to General Motors’ European dealer network, where he switched to technical training and then learning and development manager.
Sunderland-born Simon, who has one daughter, takes his work interest home with him – he’s currently restoring an old Mercedes. Describing himself as “enthusiastic”, Simon enjoys football, snowboarding, and volunteering for the Anthony Nolan bone marrow charity.
