Hello. I'm Simon.
In the noughties, I led sales and marketing for enterprise technology companies.
From 2011-2018 I co-founded ImageBrief, Inc, building web and mobile media platforms connecting 12,000+ agencies, publishers and brands with 80,000+ content creators in 169+ countries.
As CEO, I recruited, trained, and led 40+ product, sales, marketing, and growth teams in New York, London, and Sydney, negotiating and securing MSA’s and preferred supplier agreements with Fortune/FTSE 500 companies.
Since our exit, I design and execute product, marketing, and revenue growth strategies for brands, publishers, agencies, and new media platforms.
In downtime, I find inspiration from books, videos, and mentors on tech, business, and endurance.

“Simon is one of the most charismatic and inspiring people I have ever had the pleasure of working with.
Simon is one of very few people who has been fully tested in a “The Hard Thing About Hard Things” (Ben Horowitz) kind of way, and consistently proven himself as a shining pillar of integrity, talent and strength. Through successes and challenges alike, he inspires those who work with, for and around him to be the best versions of themselves.
He is an amazingly talented and admirable human being, and one of the best credentialed execs in the digital creative market”.
Anthony Pascoe, Investor & Exec Chairman, IWS
“Simon has been and still is a mentor to me. His charisma and unwavering optimism are as bright as the sun yet his willingness to pause iterate and optimize are unflinching.
His understanding of markets both financial and creative is only topped by his incessant reading and uncanny ability to absorb new knowledge and implement it rapidly.
He's a natural born leader who understands people and nurtures relationships with empathy and communication”.
Maz McWilliams, Creative Director, Stars + Stripes
“Simon Moss is an innovator. A visionary leader with that magic blend of marketing wizardry and technical aptitude.
Whilst reporting to Simon I received a lesson in charismatic leadership. An expert manager of business relationships and the ability to continually bring the best out of his team. It's no surprise to me the success Simon has enjoyed since then, and I fully expect greater successes in his future”.
Jack McKeon, Head of Customer Business, LinkedIn
“Simon is infectiously passionate. He develops strong, deep relationships quickly and garners the kind of client loyalty it might take others years to earn.
This is because his ability to see things clearly from both sides of the relationship is evident in all his interactions.
It’s also because he’s reliable, he follows through, he’s genuinely engaged in his role and he’s loads of fun to be around!
Work is a much more inspiring place to be when Simon is around”.
Sian Taylor, Head of Communications, Allianz
Inspiration - videos, books, and mentors
For a masterclass in the fundamentals of product/market fit, growth accounting, and why retention is the number one key metric for growth, nothing beats this Stanford Lecture: ‘How to Get Users and Grow’ by Alex Schultz, VP Growth, Facebook.
For essays on growth, look no further than Andrew Chen - he’s a freak/genius. Andrew led growth teams at Uber, and now he’s an investor at Andreessen Horowitz, focussing on consumer products, marketplaces, and bottoms up SaaS.
On overcoming obstacles and self-motivation, this talk by Dr. Wayne Dyer stopped me in my tracks.
Ray Dalio’s ‘How The Economic Machine Works’ is a lesson I wish I’d learned 20 years ago.
Seth Godin’s talk on Purple Cows and Otaku is still one of my favorite talks on marketing, and being remarkable.
Jim Collins “From Good to Great” helped me better understand the fundamentals of what separates good and great companies.
THERE IS A SAYING, “FIND YOUR GIFT, AND GIVE IT AWAY.”
my gift is making connections - connecting people with people,
people with opportunities, data with insights, and trends with strategY.
I’ve worn lots of hats. Often all at once. Here is a snapshot of my experience.
If you’re looking for a gun to drive growth with a deep understanding of product, marketing, and strategy, I can help.
