Who is Simon Downes

Joined Canstar: 2014
Canstar Blue is the customer satisfaction research and ratings business within the Canstar Group and we rate the brand satisfaction of a wide range of everyday consumer products, everything from mobile phone plan providers to electricity and gas retailers, to coffee machines and car tyres.

I am the editor of the Canstar Blue websites in Australia and New Zealand. Working with a talented team of writers, we aim to produce newsworthy and engaging content that is informative to consumers. We are particularly passionate about educating consumers in how to find great value mobile phone and broadband products, energy plans and household appliances. In addition to editing the two websites, I act as spokesperson for Canstar Blue in the media, and manage our social media accounts and weekly newsletters.

I joined Canstar in May 2014 after moving to Australia from the UK. I am an experienced journalist, having spent more than six years working for a group of regional newspapers, including spells as Sports Editor and Deputy Editor of the biggest free-distribution paper in the UK.

Outside of work I am a huge sports fan, but generally spend my free time at the beach with my wife and two young children.

Working for Canstar gives me a great work-life balance, and we all enjoy working towards a common goal of helping consumers make better-informed purchase decisions, whether they’re buying a new car or groceries.
