Simon has worked in the traffic management (TM) industry for 15 years. Having started at tbf Traffic as a Planner in 2018, he was quickly promoted to Planning Manager and now to Depot Manager at Dereham, where tbf opened a fully-operational depot in 2021.

The new role requires a varied skillset, including managing a team, continuing to plan TM works, acquiring permits, liaising with clients and local authorities, and exploring further business opportunities. Simon is confident. “It’s definitely time for me to take on this role,” he said. “I’ve done everything else in the industry and worked my way up. I’m versatile.”

Nissen lights

Simon, who started as Dereham Depot Manager on 4 July, is laying the groundwork for opportunity. The Dereham team recently welcomed two new, highly qualified traffic management operatives, both with M5 and M6 qualifications. The depot has also acquired additional lights – Nissen, which are lightweight with a long battery life.

“I’ve watched this depot grow since 2021, and I truly believe I can help it progress even further,” Simon said. “As a company, we go above and beyond.”
