Simon Shelton

Senior Project Manager

Simon Shelton was born as close as safely possible to Scott Base in Invercargill, he then grew up in the Antarctic gateway city of Christchurch. Needless to say this naturally led him to a career with Antarctica New Zealand beginning in 2011. Simon has led the Scott Base Redevelopment project team from the initiation of the project in 2016. Prior to this, as Project Manager, he successfully delivered the $6.3m upgrades to the Hillary Field Centre at Scott Base. Simon has wintered at Scott Base twice, once as the Scott Base Winter Leader and Field Support, and in 2015 as Project Manager. Before working for Antarctica New Zealand, Simon worked on commercial, industrial and humanitarian projects in Australia, Afghanistan, India and New Zealand, following his passion for remote and challenging projects. He enjoys leading teams, environmental stewardship and science.
