Simeon Chapman celebrates 13 years of good luck at Hazelton Mountford
24 January 2024
Group Director, Simeon Chapman, is celebrating thirteen years at Hazelton Mountford.
Simeon has spent the past 13 years learning and building the business with his fellow Directors Gordon Hazelton and Jake Mountford.
Hazelton Mountford are a people-centric business, holding their core values of ‘Personal Service, Expertise and Integrity’ very close to their hearts.
Reflecting on his time at the firm, Simeon has questioned what motivates people to stay in a job, and what stops them from leaving. He says: “It’s our job as leaders to develop the values we hold dear in the people that join us, and support them in developing their own careers. Not only does this mitigate our risk as a business, but it also allows us to challenge the norm and express our own personal values within the firm.”
Luckily for Simeon, his grandfather – who also worked in the insurance industry – encouraged him to join the sector at an early age and undertake qualifications – Simeon became Chartered in 1994 – to bolster his own learning, self-improvement and career prospects.
Simeon continues: “As a company, we’re really strong in promoting our people to gain experience and suitable qualifications – it not only has real value to the business but also promotes a loyalty and faithful outlook, which all the Senior Management Team are keen to encourage.”
Simeon aims to leave a positive legacy to those who join him and the rest of the team at the local firm, paying homage to his grandfather’s words and paying it forward to the new starters who join the Hazelton Mountford family.
