Simon Hansford is a co-founder and Chief Executive of UKCloud. Simon and his colleagues saw an opportunity with the arrival of the coalition government and creation of the Government Digital Service, to challenge the oligopoly of large incumbent IT suppliers in the government sector. Under his leadership, UKCloud has been awarded numerous significant industry accolades, most notably the Sunday Times Tech Track 100 as the UK’s fastest growing technology company.

Simon is a serial entrepreneur with many years experience in the information technology sector, with much of that time spent playing an active role in the expansion of cutting edge businesses. He has held many leadership and board positions within the hosting industry including co-founding one of the UK’s leading managed service providers, until he started UKCloud in 2011.

Simon is a father of four girls and is a keen skier, cyclist and occasional triathlete.
