Profile

Simon Jones (National Leadership Board)

I am delighted to be a member of Grant Thornton’s strategic leadership team and to have the role of finance and infrastructure leader. The role involves leading the central services teams that support the rest of our business and our clients. I also work with a number of clients, helping them to unlock their potential for growth and drawing on more than 25 years of experience in providing assurance and general business advice.

In my leadership role I will be seeking to ensure that the central services teams remain focussed on delivering a world class service to the rest of the business, thereby enabling everyone else in the business to be focussed on delivering a world class service to our clients. My own clients are generally mid sized businesses focussed across a number of sectors including financial services, housing and motor retail.

Outside of work I enjoy playing badminton and walking regularly, and sailing irregularly!  Home life involves spending time with my wife, and two teenage sons.  With two boys, life tends to be quite active.  Recent holidays have involved sailing around the Greek islands, surfing, climbing & walking in Portugal, canyoning & zip lining in Croatia!
