We are pleased to announce that the chairman of European Professional Club Rugby (EPCR) Simon Halliday has joined Elite Performance Partners as our latest Non-Executive Director and Rugby Adviser. His knowledge and expertise will be invaluable to the team.

Simon is a former international rugby player who won two Grand Slams and was a member of the England squad that reached the World Cup final in 1991.

Alongside his international rugby career, Simon had a successful 20-year career in banking for the likes of UBS, Lehman Brothers and Nomura as well as a stint at the RFU. Simon has worked in rugby both on the performance side as well as within senior leadership teams. This unique skill set and understanding allows Simon to bring a wealth of commercial expertise as well as a genuine understanding of aligning the organisational business objectives within the context of high performance sport. His background aligns with the core principles and values of our business.

Simon says: “I have a passion for business and sport bringing the best out of each other. Recruiting well in sport is critical and much-needed. Elite Performance Partners are employing a model which I admire and is very differentiated from the run-of-the mill recruitment consultancy business. I am proud to be involved and look forward to helping in their long-term success.”

He acts as patron both for Help for Heroes and Cardiac Risk in the Young.
