MEET THE TEAM

  • Simon Phippen MBA
    Simon Phippen MBA Co-founder & Director

    Simon trained as a Management Accountant and has an MBA from ESCP in Paris.

    He brings his financial and business management skills, developed in a wide range of industries, to the operational running of Riverfall. Simon uses the fact that he is not a financial adviser to ensure that Riverfall’s thinking is always client-focused and often challenges some of the ways in which the advice business has traditionally been conducted.

    His experience of working in world class organisations has taught him the importance of building a team around a strong set of values which is then reflected in a great customer experience. All team members are trusted to have delegated responsibility and are encouraged to come forward with new ideas to improve the business and its services.

    What the Riverfall team say: “Accountant, entrepreneur, poet and fearless leader, is there no limit to the man’s talents”.
