Simon John

I am a Partner and the Finance Director and have overall responsibility for NVM’s finance function, encompassing external reporting, internal control, operational management, and fundraising activities. I am also NVM’s Compliance Officer. 

I have a Masters degree in Physics from the University of Nottingham and am a chartered accountant with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW). 

Prior to joining NVM in 2016, I spent two years as VP of Investor Relations with The Sage Group plc, a FTSE 100 technology company, where I ran international programme of investor communications and external reporting. Prior to that, I spent 7 years with PwC working on Corporate Finance assignments and advising clients on a range of private equity transactions. 

Whilst it is a cliché, what I enjoy most about working at NVM is the variety with no two days ever seemingly the same. I get to work with extremely talented people across our organisation and beyond every day. 

My interests outside of work include running, skiing and lots of rugby (sadly mainly of the televised variety these days!). 

I enjoy working with colleagues across the entire NVM organisation to solve problems and drive improvements.
