Simon's Story

Combining over 50 years cumulative retail experience working for some of the largest brands in the country, such as Vodafone, Boots and Costa Coffee, ReThink understand the operation of running a business from the bottom-up.

Created back in 2011, ReThink is the brainchild of Simon and Sue Hedaux. After spending many years working in retail and workforce management, the pair spotted a gap in the market. Businesses were caught between strategic targets and operational detail and didn’t know how to harness information on their operation to deliver their goals.

Simon, Sue and the ReThink team know how to combine detailed analysis with efficiency study and benchmarking insights to drive value and create lasting improvements.

Simon Hedaux

"My practical know how and hardheaded entrepreneurial approach to business brings a unique perspective to optimizing operating costs."

"Productivity and efficiency is about so much more than saving costs. It’s about making conscious decisions on the customer offer and constant review of the operating model to keep it aligned and deliver the business objectives."
