Group Sales Director
A close friend of Simon’s, Steve has been an integral part of their joint success at Freeway, ACG and now at Rebound. He began his electronics career as a buyer at JPM before graduating to becoming Purchasing Manager and Materials Manager. He was the Sales Director at the previously mentioned companies and now has worldwide responsibility for the sales operations of the group.
Simon cofounded Rebound, with Steve Madley, in 2003 following the successful sale of Freeway Electronics to ACG Technologies, a German quoted company. Reputedly one of the most entrepreneurial minds in the electronic components supply industry, his success is based on his purchasing and materials management skills acquired in his time at Abacus Electronics. He went on to become one of the most successful sales executives at the franchised distributors, Abacus Electronics and Polar Electronics, before setting up Freeway Electronics in 1989 and leading it to £40M before its sale. He began his working life as a store man.
Peter joined the Rebound Group Board in August 2015, and has taken on executive responsibility for the Legal & Financial functions across the Group.
He is Non-Executive Chairman at 3 technology companies in which he has substantial investments, and has a career background in semiconductor test, software, electronic component distribution, engineering and healthtech, having qualified in London as a Chartered Accountant with Arthur Andersen.
Peter holds an MA in Philosophy, Politics & Economics from Oxford University.
