And Our Experience
Following a 20 year career at Aston Martin Lagonda, Simon together with is Business Partner Jason, set up Vehicle Armour Limited in July 2019, to specialise in the protection of high performance vehicles.
Through Simon’s 20 years at AM, 15 years were spent in the press garage at Gaydon. One of his main roles was the fitting of Paint Protection Film to all the overseas dealer demos, as well as the sizeable fleet of cars operating in the UK together with preparing of all the cars for all major motorshows around the world.
Detailing and protecting launch vehicles became a key role for Simon.
Simon says “I have been very fortunate and lucky to have done a job I loved for so many years and I’ve had the pleasure of working on some of the most desirable vehicles on the planet, but the time had come for me to use the knowledge and skills I had acquired to venture into my own business”.
Simon met Jason 6 years ago when their eldest children first started school together and both families have been friends since.
Jason was a Senior Corporate Banker of some 35 years and had decided in early 2019 to step back from the city high life and take semi-retirement. However best laid plans. . .
With the expertise and knowledge of Simon and the financial acumen of Jason, they decided this was a wining combination for going into business.
A 35 year career Corporate Banker and qualified Corporate Treasurer, Jason has spent the majority of his career advising corporate businesses of all sizes across the UK, but mainly in the Midlands region.
With such a financial background, Jason’s focus has been on the operational side of the business, but as a self-confessed petrol head and a very practical individual, has recently qualified independently as an installer of Paint Protection Film with SunTek.
Jason says “I have loved the majority of my career to date, especially the interaction with corporate businesses of all shapes and sizes. Starting a new venture is even more exciting, however my belief is if you have a good product, take pride in what you do, plan well and give first class customer service, you’ll have a winning formula”.
