In a nutshell…

Simon is an experienced specialist who will help you to identify opportunities in Shrinkage, Security or Compliance that will improve your Profitability and reduce Risk.

Problems are meticulously analysed and investigated, to come to a system, process or physical recommendation.

Shrinkage, Security & Compliance…

Shrinkage is reported to cost UK businesses the frightening figure of nearly £6 billion a year. At the same time physical risks to people and assets grow, with record numbers of criminal cases being reported to law enforcement. Add to this social media and the potential risk to brand reputation and you can see risks to profitability are everywhere.

Complex to identify and understand, Shrinkage, Security and Compliance are hard for any business to grasp and get right.

My aim is to give a guiding hand to help businesses and suppliers fully understand the risks that Shrinkage, Security and Compliance can pose.

Small or large, I am committed to delivering results whatever the size of the project or business. Short or long term support is available depending on your needs and confidentiality is always guaranteed.

About Me…

I have over 20 years experience of Shrinkage, Security and Compliance roles in senior leadership positions. After starting as a shop floor student in 1991 I progressed in my career through to senior roles in Loss Prevention and Profit Protection with two leading retailers in the UK. I have been fortunate enough to gain my experience and specialist knowledge from working with and alongside some of the industry’s best leaders – forming skills, talents and specialisms to be able to demonstrate significant bottom line savings with the projects I’ve managed and led.

I have contributed on the British Retail Consortium’s Operation and Security Panel and occasionally blog for the ECR’s Retail Loss Group.

Fully insured and independently vetted, I am also a member of the Association of Security Consultants (MASC, RISC) – peace of mind that your problems will be in safe hands.

Based in the South of the UK I am available to work with organisations on a local, national and international basis.
