Before joining Vail Williams in 2016 and heading up their national Rating Department, Simon set up the property company of Bisset Moffatt Hill Chartered Surveyors. There he ran the agency and lease advisory department advising clients both occupier and corporate on their various property portfolios and asset management strategies. Given his breadth of experience across the spectrum of landlord and tenant lease advisory, agency acquisition, business rates and valuation, he has now transferred from the London Business Rates department to the wider remit under the newly created London Occupier Advisory team, effective June 2019.
Simon is a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (“FRICS”), a member of the Institute of Revenues, Rating and Valuation (“IRRV”), an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (“ACIArb”) and a Fellow of the Institution of Commercial and Business Agents (“FICBA”) and the National Association of Estate Agents (“FNAEA”). He is also an appointed RICS Quality Assurance Auditor for the Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) Governance and Membership, an RICS Appeal Panel adjudicator, an RICS APC Chairman for graduate assessment at interview and an RICS APC mentor. Simon was also an External Examiner for the University of Westminster (Faculty: Architecture & the Built Environment) 2012 to 2015.
Outside of work Simon enjoys shooting, sailing and skiing.
