Simon Hearn

Deputy Chief Executive and Director of Client Advisory Department

My principal role as Director of Client Advisory Services is to ensure all electoral and balloting projects administered by ERS are delivered according to our client’s requirements, on time and to a high standard. 

I have over 20 years' experience managing projects on behalf of trade unions, private companies, government agencies, charities, local authorities and professional associations. I am Project Sponsor for all of our high profile and major client projects. 

I have worked overseas on a variety of election projects, most notably on the first post Khmer Rouge elections in Cambodia and as an electronic voting expert for the 2005 Parliamentary elections in Venezuela.

I am also a Director of our subsidiary companies Xpress Software Solutions Limited and Modern Mindset Limited.

With strategic responsibility for the delivery of electoral projects, I ensure that ERS provides innovative services to its clients that use all current and evolving information and communication digital technology to provide stakeholders the maximum opportunity to cast their vote from an informed position with the confidence that their vote is secure and will be accurately counted.
