Meet Simon, Finance Director

Simon, a keen cyclist in his spare time, joined the team at GEM Vending 17 years ago. He originally started out as the Company Accountant and is now GEM’s Finance Director. 

We asked Simon to take a moment to tell us a bit about himself…

Simon, what inspired you to do what you do?

My amazing wife Amanda is the one who motivated me to achieve in life and is doing the same with our three children, one day they will realise how incredible she is. 

What is the best place you have ever been on holiday?

St Brelades Bay, Jersey. It has the most beautiful sandy beach; it’s really clean and there is plenty to do from Water Sports to eating, drinking and people watching. 

What is your slogan for life?

“You see things; and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not?'”
George Bernard Shaw.

Tell us who you would really love to meet…

I would’ve loved to have met my Grandfather who was a Miner, a soldier during World War 1, a P.O.W escapee and later a train guard. He sadly passed away before I was born. He would have been really interesting to talk to and discuss his life experiences with. 

What book have you read that has moved you?

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
