"Mid to senior level recruitment within Timber (from forest to end user) and Construction Products"

Simon Newman

Managing Director

Simon recruits in the Timber & Forest Products and Construction Products divisions.

Simon worked at a senior level within the Timber industry for 20 years, initially with May and Hassell, Southerns Evans and Mallinson Denny, latterly at Regional Director level within a division of Wickes PLC. When Wickes divested themslves of their timber businesses he spotted an opening for a ‘high-touch’ approach to recruitment within Timber and its allied industries, ultimately setting up Miller McKenzie in 1995.

Since then, Simon has built a solid reputation with clients (both companies and candidates) from across the UK and internationally as being dependable, honest and trustworthy by offering a highly specialised and confidential service based upon the delivery of the right person to an agreed time scale. With 40 years experience within the Timber industry, Simon has an unrivalled understanding of the commercial factors driving the industry, an enviable network of individuals from across the entire supply chain and a raft of experience in working with ambitious clients to build successful teams and, ultimately, successful businesses.

Married to Kate, he has two daughters, the youngest of whom has just completed a BA (Hons) English Literature degree, whilst the eldest lives and works in New Delhi.

In his spare time he visits the gym and plays tennis (enthusiastically but not well) and completes many 5km and 10km runs (with the odd half marathon), he enjoys current affairs, music (mainly rock, folk and blues but also classical), literature and cinema and is a keen (and long suffering) follower of the English cricket team.
