Simon received the award from Her Majesty on October 19th at Buckingham Palace. In attendance were his wife Rebecca and children William and Isabella.
Simon said “it was a fantastic day, it just went so quickly. From the first moment you enter the palace you are made to feel so welcome by all concerned.
Meeting The Queen was a little nerve racking but I wish I could do it all again. To hear our company name read out in such a setting was a real thrill and as I have said before this award was a much about the company as it was about me.
The business was set up 15 years ago and it has come such a long way since then but I still feel we are only at the start of the journey so to get an award like the MBE at this stage is unbelievable”.
