What they say about him: "His consulting background has exposed him to a huge variety of different industries and problematic situations. A change leader with significant operational experience and only interested in the big, challenging roles which enable him to draw on his strong intellect and drive to deliver transformation."

Simon Post made his name most recently at Rupert Murdoch's BSkyB as group IT and strategy director, where he was responsible for a complete organisational and process transformation and an update to much of the core IT infrastructure.

Post moved on from there to join Carphone Warehouse as CTO in February 2005. His early career included a spell in consulting and he was a partner at Arthur Andersen responsible for running its global e-business and advanced technology teams.

Following that Post worked at Stanford Research Institute spin-off Atomic Tangerine in commercialising technology intellectual property from companies and research laboratories.
