Simon Gibbs

Technical Business Development Manager Group Polar

My work philosophy:

Work hard, play hard!

My Roles and Responsibilities

I am responsible for building and maintaining client relationships, applying technical knowledge to enquiries and providing accurate quotations which meet the client's requirements.



I have a First Class Honours degree in Product Design which has helped my technical understanding hugely. My job roles have always fallen within the engineering and technical areas of a project, predominantly front end and heavily involved in R&D. I now use this experience at Polar to help quote accurately and in a manner that demonstrates design for manufacture has been considered.


Why am I on Connect?

With 13+ years experience in the UK manufacturing industry, nine of which are in composites I have a wealth of knowledge and a detailed, creative mind that can help get ideas and concepts out of people's heads, off paper or the screen and successfully turned into the finished article.


Whom would I like to mentor?

I'm looking to mentor someone with a creative mind, full of ideas and an interest in advanced manufacturing.
