Archipelago is proud to announce the addition of Simon Berry to our advisory team. Simon is the founder of UK-based Fresh Projects, a project financial management platform for architecture and engineering firms. He will work closely with us to support and facilitate the implementation of Fresh Projects within our member firms.

The Genesis of Fresh Projects

Before founding Fresh Projects, Simon served as a Director at WSP South Africa, where he oversaw the nationwide implementation of Deltek Vision ERP. Recognizing the need for better project management tools in small to medium-sized firms, Simon launched Fresh Projects in 2014. It has since been utilized in over 150,000 projects across four continents, offering a comprehensive and user-friendly platform for project management, fee estimation, timesheets, and more.

How Simon and Archipelago Will Work Together

In his dual role as an advisor to Archipelago and founder of Fresh Projects, Simon plays an important role in the growth of both organizations. He is leading the introduction of Fresh Projects to the North American market with support from Archipelago’s network.
