Simon Holmes, Enterprise Partnership Manager

Expertise

Facilities management, procurement, health and safety, human resources, financial planning and management

background

Simon’s background started in general management principally in the Construction Industry where he worked in Business Development, Strategy and HR functions within a £100m turnover regional contractor in his home county of Lincolnshire. In 2001,  he took some time out from this to run his own landscaping and building business so, he understands exactly the pressures of working for yourself which is obviously great for his role within Wenta now! Just prior to working at Wenta, Simon was employed as a School Business Director in a Secondary School dealing on a day to day basis with all elements of general business management – effectively anything that wasn't teaching and learning.
