We’re excited to announce that following a successful 2022, we have made some changes to our structure to support the business in its next phase of growth.
Compliance and Operations Manager
Lyndsey Gates will now take overall responsibility for the day-to-day operations of the Head Office as Compliance and Operations Manager. This last 12 months, Lyndsey has done an outstanding job in supporting the business from a compliance aspect working closely with TrustMark and UKAS. She has naturally started to oversee the running of the customer service aspect towards the end of the 2022. This change in role now formalises Lyndsey’s position, enabling her to start to plan the growth of the team for 2023 to support the new products and services that will be released over the next few months.
PAS 2030 and MCS Scheme Manager
Richard Wiffen one of our Technical Assessors has now moved up to be our PAS 2030 and MCS Scheme Manager and will be responsible for the team of assessors that fall under these standards. Richard will be responsible for managing both contracted and direct employed field based assessors, supporting the employee onboarding process and working closely with Lyndsey to fulfil all compliance requirements around the schemes. Richard has proven to be a wonderful asset to Simply; along with his exceptional assessment and people skills this new role will make even better use of his knowledge and capabilities.
Alexandra Gates has taken over as Managing Director from 3 January 2023, allowing Austin Gibbons to take on strategic projects around compliance, certification and technologies continuing to build our portfolio of services whilst formally delivering the Finance Director role for the business. Alex will continue to lead the growth of the business through strategic partnerships and work closely with Austin to execute the new initiatives.
What an eventful start to 2023 for Team Simply!
