Real-World SDN and Your Future Career

Simon's early career was in finance as a fund manager, within what became Deutsche Bank and Barclays Wealth. Simon had discretion to manage over £40m+ of funds before age 21, becoming the youngest qualified member of the Securities Institute. He had a reputation and track record for stock-picking, particularly of technology companies but found his career focussing on senior roles in business recovery and technology troubleshooting.

Simwood (https://simwood.com) was founded in 1996 (as 'eSMS': the world's first global gateway between the Internet and Mobile Phones) and Simon left finance in 1999 to focus on it and a number of other start-ups. He was usually co-founder and occupied roles from CEO to CTO, exiting all of them except Simwood by 2005. As CEO and architect, he shaped the current business of Simwood to be the wholesale voice and mobile operator it is today.

In 2016 he was elected a Director of the London Internet Exchange (http://www.linx.net), the world’s largest member-owned peering exchange operator. LINX operates peering exchanges across the UK and in North Virginia USA.

In that role he speaks widely at industry events, often around the company's extensive research on voice fraud and infrastructure.
