A lawyer with more than 16 years’ experience in the financial services sector, Simon joined SocietyOne in May 2016 from iSelect Group, the ASX-listed multi-channel digital comparison business where he was Head of Legal and Compliance.
Prior to iSelect, Simon spent almost 5 years in a senior management position with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) in its Financial Services Enforcement Group. In that position, Simon played a key role in establishing and building ASIC’s enforcement capability in preparation for the commencement of the National Consumer Credit Protection Act. He then led teams across the country handling investigations and litigation arising out of breaches of the Corporations Act, the ASIC Act and the National Consumer Credit Protection Act.
Admitted as a solicitor in 1999, Simon gained over 10 years’ experience in private legal practice, including DLA Phillips Fox (now DLA Piper), before leaving that firm to join ASIC in 2009.
