Simon Johnson

Non-Executive Director

I am a Non-Executive Director at HW Fisher and independent business and charity consultant. At HW Fisher, I support the multi-disciplinary partnership on strategic priorities and new business opportunities.

Having held several senior executive and non-executive positions, I have a strong track record of building and managing stakeholder relationships and deals. Until June 2020, I was the CEO of the Jewish Leadership Council. During my seven years there, I represented the interests of the Jewish community, and coordinated campaigns and long-term strategic reviews at the request of members’ trustees.

I joined the Rugby Football League board in 2014 and have served as Chair of the Rugby Football League since 2019. Prior to this, I also held senior roles within the Premier League, Football Association, England’s 2018 World Cup Bid and ITV. I have experience working with local and national government to promote the sports industry, and directing organisational strategy to increase commercial returns. My industry experience spans the sports, media and leisure industries, and the charitable third-sector.
