MEET THE DIRECTORS

SIMON PERRIN
SIMON PERRINChief Executive Officer and Founder
Simon started his career with IBM in Australia whilst travelling during the late 1980’s, which is where he got his first experience of the importance of excellent customer support. Simon moved back to London where he held sales roles at Apple and at Oracle consultancy Pentos, where he led the sales effort to 100% Y-o-Y growth. During his sales career, Simon recognised the need for a more flexible approach to business solutions and wanted to offer a personalised approach where customers actually knew the guy that was supporting their data platform. Simon founded NCS in 1994. His intention was to build a business where the quality of the relationship was the key driving factor to differentiate NCS from the white labelled call centres that were being offered by big IT. 20+ years later understanding the customer and their business is the value that drives NCS’ growth.
