An accountant by trade, Simon transitioned to tax and accounting recruiting in London in 1996, and founded SWIM with Bodil Geyer more than a decade ago. That path has since expanded to include expertise in growth industries including supply chain and technology in Vancouver.
English born and Canadian by choice, Simon is known for his humour, professionalism and entrepreneurial spirit in the recruiting space.
“We work with both the largest, and most innovative companies in Vancouver to ultimately grow their business by matching the best talent with their culture and vision.”
Often found sporting a pair of colourful Adidas, Simon embodies the west coast way of life with regular commutes on the west coast express to the SWIM offices in Gastown, and espouses the importance of a healthy balance of life and work. “People are the foundation of everything we do – and matching the right roles and organizational culture with the right person is the ultimate key to success.”
Simon puts the “fun” in functional family at SWIM – and embodies the spirit of authenticity. He’s most proud of building SWIM into a top Vancouver organization where the team loves coming to work everyday, treats every client as part of the SWIM family, and balances real life on the west coast.
