SIMON A TAYLOR

Strategic Talent Management & Organizational Development

MY STORY

From age 11 I had dreamed of leaving familiar New Zealand and living in the USA. A rowing scholarship paved the way to the University of Washington where the adventure began.

After attaining my degree and achieving my sporting goals, I moved with my wife down to sunny Los Angeles to pursue a career in Talent Management & Organizational Development.

Since then, I have been fortunate to work at The Walt Disney Company, an internet startup called FindTheBest, Warner Bros., and am currently a Senior Manager of Leadership, Talent, and Organization Development at Amgen.

During this journey, it has been wonderful to rub shoulders with some very talented and dynamic people, and I look forward to seeing the story continue to unfold in the City of Angels.
