Simon Pollard Featured As Insider’s Entrepreneur Of The Month
COVVI Chief Executive, Simon Pollard, has been named Insider Media’s Entrepreneur of the Month; an amazing accolade for the Leeds businessman who has spent more than two decades working tirelessly to build a successful commercial portfolio.
Simon sat down with Fiona Haran to showcase the journey he’s been on to build the impressive empire he has today. From telecoms company Intouch Advance, to 22 Street Lane Nursey, to the present day with COVVI, it is certain that Pollard has an extensive skillset in order to keep such differing and successful businesses afloat. With six companies spanning various industry sectors, Simon professes that COVVI is the one he’s got his eye on at the moment due to the huge potential it presents
And he isn’t wrong to be confident, as distribution sales for the prosthetics company grew by 400 per cent in the recent financial year and the company is currently on track for a £2m turnover in 2023. “The aim is to be selling 100 hands a month in the next 12 to 18 months.” To achieve this, COVVI is partnering with medical providers all over the world to introduce the hand into new markets and utilising brand advocates to help communicate the value of the hand to a wider audience.
Working with individuals who have been impacted by their disability, and listening to their needs and demands, has led COVVI to develop a truly innovative and purpose-led product. The future is very bright for COVVI with plans for even further expansion in the near future. The rate of growth and success is a testament to the hard work of not only Simon, but the brilliant team he leads.
