Our Strengths

Conspargo has created a unique dynamic within which the leadership team have identified opportunities to create thriving brands in key sectors.


Simon Kidney

Executive Chair

Originally from an investment banking background with experience in business development, acquisition and customer service strategy, Simon took up the role of CEO as part of a Management Buyout in October 2015.

Leading the group’s strategy and development over six years has been a challenge Simon has relished and the business has tripled in size, despite the ravages of the pandemic, expanding into property development and hospitality along the way.

Simon is currently undertaking his Doctorate in Business Administration on entrepreneurial and exit cycle research in the timber engineering sector at Cranfield University.

Mark Smy

Executive Chair

Mark worked his way up through the timber engineering sector from the very early days of his career and is very much at home in the manufacturing sector.

Starting off as an estimator and designer, Mark developed entrepreneurial instincts and with that a desire to manage truss factories himself, and moved to Robinson Manufacturing (RML), where he worked for founder Tim Robinson.

Mark instigated the expansion of RML’s factory network to cover areas beyond the East Midlands and in 2015, was offered the chance to buy RML from Tim Robinson, who was keen to retire, and accepted the challenge, bringing on board banker Simon Kidney as part of the management buyout.
