‘Simon Hamilton – next Finance Minister for Northern Ireland’


SPEAKER: Simon Hamilton, Assembly Private Secretary to Sammy Wilson (scheduled                   
to succeed Mr Wilson as Finance Minister in 2013)


We are delighted to welcome Mr Simon Hamilton, MLA for Strangford and Assembly Private Secretary to Finance Minister Sammy Wilson. Mr Hamilton will succeed Sammy Wilson in the coming months, and so this is an early chance to hear from Simon on how he views the challenges ahead.


Profile of the guest speaker:


Simon began his career at an accountancy firm in Belfast and has used his experience with the business sector at Stormont, where he served as Deputy Chairperson of the Finance & Personnel Committee between 2008 and 2009, and as a member of the Enterprise, Trade & Investment Committee.

In July 2009, Simon was appointed by DUP Leader Peter Robinson as Chairman of the Assembly's Social Development Committee. It was Simon's job to lead Stormont's scrutiny of the work of the Department of Social Development in respect of housing, social security, the community and voluntary sector and urban regeneration.

Simon is also a member of the Assembly and Executive Review Committee which examines issues such as streamlining Stormont and the devolution of policing and justice powers. Simon is also the current Deputy Chair of the Environment Committee and has secured Assembly support for motions calling for a river cleaning strategy and the extension of online car tax renewal to Northern Ireland. A regular TV and radio contributor, Simon was the winner of the Slugger O'Toole 'Up and Coming' Politician of the Year award in 2010.
