Group Managing Director
Simon Dolan started Contractor Umbrella 1999, to fulfil the umbrella needs of his first major business SJD Accountancy, which was the only accounting firm in the UK top 100 owned by an individual rather than a partnership. SJD Accountancy was acquired in 2014 along with accounting practice Nixon Williams by Sovereign Capital for over £100m.
In 2017 Simon set up Dolan Accountancy, with the vision of clients being able to seamlessly switch from umbrella to limited and he continues to work closely with the team to achieve this vision.
