Chief Executive Officer

Jewish National Fund (JNF)


Simon Winters OBE is known to be a world class strategic manager and consultant of not-for-profit organisations with vast experience in handling large campaigns and events, as former CEO of JNF. His background involves overseeing the restructuring and rebranding process of multi-national organisations as well as planning international auto rallies and other gala events that support the non-profit sector. From his base in the UK, Simon Winters plans events and manages the operations of successful campaigns that result in added income for many international charities. For his work in charitable organisations, he was awarded the Order of the British Empire (OBD) in Her Majesty the Queen's Birthday Honours List in 2009.

Auto Rallies that Raise Funds for Charity

Simon Winters started organising car rallies over fifteen years ago and established Formula Won Ltd. as a commercial venture to organise these and other special events that will raise awareness as well as cash for needy charitable organisations, which involves various market sectors, countries and languages. The events held thus far include car rallies, large gala dinners and film, all with the purpose of helping out non-profits. The management team of Formula Won Ltd. takes charge of projects that begin with brainstorming ideas and then goes on to build effective leadership teams that collaborate to carry out the programme to successfully relay the client's important message. One of the events organised by the company is the Italian Tutti Frutti Car Rally 2012, which will be an eleven-day Classic Car Tour of Italy beginning and ending in Basel, Switzerland.  Previous rallies include three-week tours from London to Jerusalem, the Swiss Roll, the Irish Jig and the Highland Fling.

Managerial Consultancy Services to Multinational Charitable Organisations

Simon Winters uses his vast business and management experience to help raise attention and funds for large charitable organisations throughout the world. His expertise lies in every facet of consultancy including rebranding where needed, restructuring to receive positive results and supporting the interim management team during the entire process. His impressive contact list helps ensure that his events will be successful, including such VIPs as former US President Bill Clinton, the President of Ireland, King Hussein of Jordan, Prince Albert of Monaco and the Duke of Edinburgh. His success in the field has earned him the reputation of increasing the worth of an organisation from a mere £3 million to £15.8 million over a period of eleven years. He also initiates unique management ideas, large scale marketing programmes and events as he develops a strong network of international contacts through his keen management skills. He helped establish an organisation that provides support to CEOs of global charities, ELLA, and he provides valuable consultation and restructuring advice to the International Institute for Studies of Secret Jews. That organisation does research and creates educational activities that promote an understanding of the history, culture and customs of Secret Jews (Anusim). Another important charity that benefits from his capable leadership skills is the Jaffa Institute in Israel, which helps the local underprivileged children by providing them with food, counseling and holistic programs aimed at helping them to avoid a future filled with violence, poverty and crime.
