Simon Lavin


Project Manager

Member of:

Simon has a career spanning both public and private sectors. In the private sector he has worked in areas as diverse as Technology, Optical Fibre Cable Manufacture, Defence systems, Hospitality and Leisure. In the public sector he’s worked for Welsh Government, Welsh Development Agency and Brussels-based EU focussed organisations. The common theme across these experiences has been the development of new products, offerings, markets and interventions exploring growth areas and emerging demands aligning the organisation from a micro and macro perspective.

On a personal note Simon is the father of two children, an avid Newport County supporter, crossword lover, sometime squash player (having played at County level in his younger days). He thinks serious things need to be taken seriously, but that doesn’t preclude a smile, good humour and kindness. He placed emphasis and value on vision, purpose and creativity.
