Joint Chief Executive
Simon Morioka is Joint Chief Executive at PPL, with over twenty-five years of experience in helping organisations to design and implement major changes to the way in which they work.
Simon began his career at global management consultancy Accenture, working up to become a senior manager on projects and programmes with clients based in Europe, Asia and the US. In 2004, Simon joined the London Borough of Lambeth, initially on secondment, to help develop a £30 million service transformation programme; staying on for three years as the council’s Director for Strategy, Transformation & Technology across Adults & Children’s, Housing, Environmental and Corporate Services.
Simon subsequently worked at board level as CIO of a major global educational charity; as a Local Improvement Advisor for the Department for Communities & Local Government; and as an NHS Programme Director on multi-million pound change programmes in primary, community and acute services, focussing on achieving better health outcomes through re-designing the way in which care is delivered.
Since co-founding PPL in 2007, Simon has led the organisation’s work on major public sector programmes including the “People Powered Health Programme” with NESTA and the Innovation Unit, implementing co-production in the area of long-term conditions management and with the LGA, NHS England, ADASS and Public Health England developing the first “whole-system” approach to integrated care across England.
His current roles include providing strategic advice to chief executives in the public and voluntary & community sector; and facilitating dialogue with system partners and communities to better integrate local care. Simon is lead sponsor for our volunteering programme and in his spare time volunteers with St John Ambulance and the Metropolitan Police.
