Kubrick co-founders Tim Smeaton and Simon Walker, commented: “We are excited to welcome Simon Collins to Kubrick as our first Chair. Simon is a visionary who challenges the status quo and inspires and develops individuals and teams. He brings with him extensive leadership and industry experience across a diverse range of sectors. Simon’s previous experience and expertise make him a great fit for Kubrick as we continue to grow and evolve the business. We look forward to working together in his new role.”
Simon Collins said: “I am delighted to join Kubrick as Chair and I look forward to working with Simon Walker, Tim Smeaton, and the executive leadership team as the company continues to grow. Businesses globally are striving for digital transformation but lack the data skills needed to evaluate opportunities and drive change. Kubrick is helping brands by plugging the digital skills to meet immediate business needs, as well as building teams for long-term needs. It provides these skills, consistently and to the highest quality, in a flexible and efficient way. I look forward to helping the company to scale up and flourish.”
