Being a proud Yorkshireman, Simon brings a portfolio of experience and leadership from various sectors including switchgear, electronics and gearbox industries. His career has been marked by significant achievements in operations, engineering, and later in sales, commercial and business development roles.


‘I have always thrived in diverse environments, which have shaped me into a well rounded leader focused on driving profitable growth and market expansion,’ he commented. His commitment to innovation and excellence aligns seamlessly with the company’s core values, making his appointment a pivotal development in its journey, especially in its 70th year.


Looking ahead, Simon’s vision revolves around enhancing customer value and innovation through significant investments in people and product automation. ‘I am excited to leverage my background in driving business excellence to further establish ABG’s position as a pioneer in the label printing industry,’ he added. ‘I am also committed to working closely with the company’s existing owners and leadership teams to preserve values, strategic direction and strong teamwork ethic which is very much part and parcel of ABG culture.’


Richard Knight, who planned his retirement for the end of 2024, has been instrumental in navigating the company through the challenges of recent years, including the pandemic, while achieving remarkable growth. Reflecting on his tenure, Richard said: ‘It has been a privilege to lead such a dynamic team. I am confident that Simon will not only continue the great work we  have started but will also take ABG to new heights.’
