Simon Finch

Distribution Director, Harrods

Simon joined Harrods Limited as an Executive Trainee in 1996 after graduating from University the previous year. On completion of the scheme in 1997, he moved on to the sales floor as an assistant manager in the International Crystal department; however it was not long before he discovered that his true passion lay within logistics and he moved into selling support. Simon has held many positions within the Store Operations and Distribution Directorates with responsibilities ranging from Retail Operations, Distribution, Warehousing Fulfilment and Delivery.

In 2007 he was appointed Deputy Director of Distribution, and in addition to running the Distribution and eCommerce operations he lead the team in the re-design of the supply chain and in the delivery of many projects, including the design and build of the new Harrods Distribution Centre in West Berkshire that opened in 2012.

Simon was appointed Director of Distribution for the Retail Group in August 2015 and is responsible from a Supply Chain perspective for the delivery of the Harrods B.O.L.T. (Building Omni-channel Luxury Together) Programme. Simon completed an MBA at Cass Business School in 2011, and is married with a young daughter and lives in West London.
