Cooper Lomaz Recruitment is pleased to announce the appointment of their new Commercial Director, Simon Brown; Simon has over 12 years of experience within recruitment throughout the United Kingdom and we are happy to welcome him to the team.


Simon started his career in recruitment in 2004, in an internal role within the Financial Services Sector, recruiting across three sites before attracting the attention of two prominent recruitment agencies who offered him the opportunity to work agency side.  After careful consideration Simon took one of these opportunities based on the range of recruitment roles and development the organisation offered.


After a successful first 10 months working a permanent recruitment desk covering the Merseyside area, Simon applied and succeeded in getting a role he very much wanted as National Account Manager.  In doing this role successfully for four years Simon was able to grow into the role of one of the company’s most successful Business Development Managers.  During his time in the role Simon specialised in Managed Service Contracts across the UK, winning contracts from Cornwall to Strathclyde.  It was during this time that Simon became familiar with East Anglia, by working on and winning the Norfolk Constabulary recruitment contract. During the 5 years he spent with the company, Simon won over 20 Managed Service Contracts, which we think is pretty good work!


Simon then took the decision to relocate and take a new opportunity with a leading Public Sector recruitment agency as Client Development Manager where he reported directly to the MD and covered all three offices – Birmingham, London and Manchester.  Success within this role and organisation saw Simon embark on a wide range of business areas and opportunities which ultimately saw him get promoted to the UK Board of Directors in March 2015 as Commercial Director.


2016 sees Simon embark on his most exciting career move to date in joining Cooper Lomaz as Commercial Director, Simon said of his recent move:


“I am proud to have joined such a valued and recognised professional recruitment organisation in Cooper Lomaz.  The welcome I have received from across the organisation has been amazing and something I am extremely grateful for; it’s certainly helped ease my transition into the company.  I am excited to work across the Sales and Client Development teams at Cooper Lomaz, helping to build on the excellent results the organisation has delivered to clients and candidates across East Anglia over the last 25 years.”


We’re really excited to welcome Simon to the team, and the lovely region of East Anglia, as we know he’ll be a real asset and a lovely chap to work with.
