Simon Lever - Director, Teddington Office
Simon has almost 30 years experience with blue-chip organisations in the IT business. He founded SimplySonos during an incented sabbatical year in 2005 and acquired the BluCube brand in 2009. When not talking to customers or suppliers, generating new ideas or generally harassing the rest of the team, Simon might be found at the controls of a home-built aerobatic biplane. That's if he gets the time after catching up with his wife and three children.

Kris Rogers - Business Development, Teddington Office
Kris has been with Simply Sound & Vision since July 2009 and brings with him a strong track record in sales and customer service. Kris is always keen to take on and promote new and exciting products within the SS&V portfolio. A keen runner and cyclist, when not talking to customers, Kris can be found pounding the streets of Teddington to keep fit and put the rest of the office to shame.

Zena Hansford - Office Manager, Teddington Office
Zena has been keeping the Teddington Office running smoothly since June 2011. She ensures deadlines are met, customers fulfilled and stocks ordered in time with suppliers. On top of all that she somehow manages to keep two teenage children right on top of their game at school.

Phavinder Bharj - Project Manager, Teddington Office
Phav is a (2015) addition to the team and brings with him many years of graphic design skills as well as a strong knowledge of Sonos. Phav’s role is to drive and deliver the implementation of new back-office stock management and web, front-end systems. When not found working away on the SSAV website, Phav can be found at wedding events setting up latest audio visual technology to give the event that individual touch.

Hussein Jodiyawalla - Lead Technician, Teddington Office
With years of experience with Computer Networking and a passion for WiFi and problem solving, he will make sure all of the systems in your home are fast, reliable and secure. He has a UEWA Enterprise Wireless certification and also a fully trained Control4 installer so is quite busy with some very exciting smart home projects. When he is not learning new programming languages and making systems to draw the blinds and set mood lighting with a touch of a button in your home, he is probably pulling wheelies on his bike.

James Leigh - Business Development, Teddington Office
James joined the team in March 2016 and is responsible for developing new business with our trade and retail customers as well as handling customer facing activities in our Teddington Office. As a former Staffordshire and Metropolitan Police Officer and a keen world traveller James brings a unique perspective to the business.

Billy O'Callaghan - Installation Technician, Teddington Office
Billy is the youngest member of the team and has a passion for home technology. He joins SS&V after extensive solo travelling adventures throughout Asia. Billy has a degree in sound production and helps customers achieve the best results from their sound systems whatever their budget.
