My name is Simon Pollard and I am a 44-year-old Leeds-born entrepreneur who has spent the last 22 years building a number of successful businesses. I live and breathe business and have a true passion for ensuring my customers feel valued, something that is at the very heart my business principles. I am passionate and tenacious in my mission to achieve and secure success, as I continue to build and develop leading brands. As well as being the founder and CEO of Intouch Advance for 17 years, which is an incredibly exciting company, I also work across a number of diverse industries.
In 2015 I was chosen as one of Yorkshire’s standout business leaders by one of the region’s top business journals, the Insider. Their ’42 Under 42′ programme recognises Yorkshire’s most dynamic and inspirational young entrepreneurs, celebrating their success in helping to grow the regional economy. According to the Insider, it’s a “showcase of the region’s brightest business talent, the next generation of leaders.”
I feel privileged to have been given the opportunity to work in the telecommunications industry: a sector that is fast-moving, dynamic, ever-changing, challenging, but also fun. Intouch Advance’s success has enabled me to lay the foundations to propagate other business interests, at the same time as running the day to day operations here. I can honestly say that the last 23 years of working in the telecoms industry has instilled my passion for delivering the very best service possible. The future continues to be exciting, across my portfolio, as it goes from strength to strength.
