Allen Smith, Co-Founder & CEO of DMCG Global, Australia commented,

When planning our launch to the Sydney market, there were few names that came to mind who were capable.

I’ve known Simon for quite a while having admired his career from afar since he moved into the recruitment sector. Not only does he have an impressive network and a loyal following in our sector, he’s just a genuine good human being. We’re really excited to be able to lean on his knowledge and leadership as we look to grow our offering in Sydney.
