He then moved to the film side of the business working as a Film Compositor, at Digital film. Working on a range of blockbuster movies including James Bond, Zorro, The Borrowers, Les Miserable and The Nutty Professor, to name a few. He then joined a company called Double Negative continuing this line of work.

In 2001 he left a successful career in film business to join the family business Anglepoise. He started as Managing Director, and was responsible for steering into a design driven business by collaborating with Kenneth Grange, Britain’s most successful Industrial Designer, who is still the Design Director to this day. Simon has significantly grown the business since then both at home and around the globe.
