John McAviney – Northern Ireland Area Manager - BSSC ( Hons) in Economics and Social Sciences, Queens University
I'm the Area Manager for Northern Ireland.
After graduating from Queens University in 1996 with a BSSC ( Hons) in Economics and Social Sciences, I decided to join the postgraduate management programme, which gave me a real flavour for Sales and Marketing, and I've never looked back!
I have had the pleasure of working for some fantastic companies and Simplyhealth Professionals is no exception. I've spent the past 16 years working in a variety of interesting sectors including Advertising, Medical and Healthcare.
Simplyhealth Professionals is a fantastic company to work for and it has given me the opportunity to share my wealth of knowledge from a sales and marketing perspective, thus helping my clients grow and develop their business.

Alan Tumilson – Regional Consultant for Northern Ireland - Higher National Diploma in Business, Finance & Distribution Studies
Having joined Simplyhealth Professionals as Regional Consultant for Northern Ireland & North England, after 14 years as an Account Manager at Hibu (Yell), I am looking forward to getting to know and learn about my clients.
In 1993 I graduated from UUJ and spent almost 8 years with the Belfast Telegraph managing key client accounts, and coupled with my time at Yell, I have attained a solid knowledge of both traditional and digital forms of advertising such as Google.
I am married to Cheryl and have 2 children, Matt (15) and Erin (10), so you can guess that most of my spare time is spent as the family taxi. I am a keen football fan, Man Utd are my team.
