SIMON ATTRIBUTES HIS STRING OF SUCCESSFUL PROJECTS TO THE FACT THAT HE GENUINELY HAS HIS CLIENTS' BEST INTERESTS AT HEART
Simon's strong technical leadership and string of successful consent acquisition programmes have given him quite the reputation. At 4Sight he combines his academic background and extensive experience with infrastructure projects to deliver statutory permits for more than $20M of new assets each year.
Simon is senior member of the 4Sight team, and spends a lot of his time overseeing and mentoring junior staff. He is well versed in the high standards of consultation required for infrastructure and park amenity projects, and encourages junior staff members at 4Sight to hold themselves to the highest possible standards.
One of Simon's longest-standing projects is the Auckland Council stormwater programme. He has been involved in this project since the start of his career in 2002, and acts as a Technical Lead and Project Manager. He acts as an important link between the Stormwater Planning Team and the Compliance Team.
He is also experienced in iwi, intra-government department and other stakeholder liaison. He has authored several papers on the public consultation process, which he has presented at international conferences.
