Meet the Team

Simon Nash

CEO

Simon was originally CFO for the Cresatech group, but has since taken on the wider role of CEO. He is a Chartered Global Management Accountant and a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants.

After an early career as an electronics engineer, Simon changed direction after joining a fast track management development programme.

After graduating in business studies he qualified as an accountant in 1993. His first Finance Director role was for software specialist PWA Group in 1995, where he led it through significant growth, including a VC fundraising and its subsequent sale to Great Plains Software (now Microsoft Business Solutions).

In 2004, Simon created SRN Associates, a financial management consultancy focusing on growing technology companies, through which he helped over 20 companies develop and implement growth strategies; a role that has also included corporate finance transactions ranging from acquisitions, corporate restructuring, fundraising and M&A work.

He has worked with established names, such as SunGard, Great Plains, Halma, and Microsoft as well as a wide range of VC and private equity backed companies.

Outside the office, Simon is a keen runner, and enjoys reading, music, playing keyboards (badly), and travelling with his wife Alison, and his (almost adult) kids.
