Mind Data Appoints Ex-Salesforce VP, Simon Short, as Board Advisor

Updated: Nov 17, 2023

I am thrilled to share the news that feels like a big milestone in our journey.

We're welcoming a new Board Advisor, Simon, whose name many of you will recognise as the former Executive Vice President of Global Customer Success at Salesforce.

Simon's appointment is not just a win for Mind Data but a sign of progress for mental health technology. With a CV that speaks volumes — from his VP tenure at Salesforce to guiding technology strategy at Vodafone and Capgemini — Simon brings a wealth of experience that's as broad as it is deep.

But what's truly inspiring is Simon's commitment to leveraging technology for the greater good. As Chair of Trustees at Astriid, he's championed the cause of inclusivity and wellbeing. His vision aligns perfectly with ours: transforming mental health support from a reactive to a proactive stance.

And there's more to Simon's story. His 15 years as an officer in the Royal Navy have instilled in him a strategic mindset that is invaluable in navigating the complexities of the tech world — especially in a startup like ours that’s dedicated to mental health.

“I am delighted to be taking on an exciting challenge as a Board Advisor to Mind Data, an amazing start-up in the mental health technology space." says Simon.

We'll also be drawing on Simon's B2B acumen and his acuity in customer experience to underpin our recent strategic pivot. As we shift our focus to serving professional sports organisations and academia, Simon's insights will be instrumental in refining our real-time data offerings to enhance mental health support.

Joining forces with Simon, and alongside our talented team including Stuart Hearn, former CEO of Clear Review, we're setting our sights on building a robust customer portfolio, both in the UK and the USA.

This is more than growth; it’s an evolution towards making a significant, measurable impact in mental health care. And with Simon on board, I'm more confident than ever that we can make our vision a reality.

Here's to the future – a future where mental well-being is not an afterthought but a forethought.
