colleagues first. Interestingly, Ben’s real name is Andrew George – a family tradition passed down from father to son. However, he has always been called Ben. Ben also has a son called Andrew George…..who has always been known as William!

 

 

 

 

David Garratt

David Garratt Chairman

David joined Simply as Chairman in July 2019 at the time of the Management Buy Out of the business, backed by our investor Livingbridge. He spends two to three days a week with the business. His role is to chair the Board of Directors and to work with Ben and the team to ensure that we are progressing with all the key projects required to grow the business. Outside work, his
passion is cycling, but he has yet to make it from home in West Sussex to Daventry, or to Milton Keynes or London for that matter!

Paul Tennant

Paul Tennant Chief Information Officer

Paul joined Simply in June 2020 as CIO, but not for the first time. He was previously our Technical Director from 2008-2010. Paul’s role is to lead the technology strategy within the business, ensuring that this aligns with the wider business strategy. It is his job to ensure Simply uses IT to its best advantage – to differentiate our service from competitors and to make our processes more efficient. Paul hasn’t always worked in IT – his university degree was in biotechnology, followed by 2 years of  neurophysiology research. Somewhere along the line he decided to swap the laboratory for a computer screen and hasn’t looked back!
