Simon is a veteran in the hydroponics industry, having worked in it since 1996 following the completion of his degree in Biochemistry and Biotechnology.

A typical day for him can be in the lab mixing, on the floor managing logistics, or in the office developing pricing strategies, a true workaholic. This is not surprising knowing his history which involves multiple accounts of pioneering product types and developing existing formulas.
After selling his retail business in 2013, Simon became a Director of AquaLabs and continued with product development, bringing to market the Shogun and Silver Bullet range.
