Simon has been a Trustee for Alopecia UK since November 2015 and has served as Chair throughout. He has worked for many years in financial services, holding several main board positions, and has now set up his own consultancy business specialising in operations.  Simon has also built, and remains an owner, of a number of other companies within the same sector. Over his time as Trustee, Simon has sought to use his experience to put in strong foundations at the charity to enable it to continue to develop and grow.

“People come to Alopecia UK from all walks of life and my journey started when my wife lost all her hair, in the space of a few months, back in 2012.  Like a lot of people, we had a huge appetite for information but also to be able to meet up with others who have gone through the same experience.  AUK fulfilled those needs and whilst no one ever really gets over Alopecia, my wife has learned to live with her hair loss. I know first-hand the importance of the work AUK does and I am driven to help build this a lot further.”
