They'll be creating cutting-edge content for clients while spearheading the development of IP and tools internally. Substantial growth and results include large-scale installations and partnerships with industry-leading entities at Epic Games, Facebook and Magic Leap, in addition to recent work that has garnered gongs at Cannes Lions, SXSW, Clio Awards, The One Show and The Webby Awards.
With a background in business strategy, entertainment, and technology in digital and immersive media, Simon brings 10 years of experience to The Mill. He previously served as Head of VR at UNIT9, followed by head of immersive at Digital Catapult, where he worked with the British government to establish strategies and pipelines to support the acceleration of VR and AR in the UK.
