Starting in 2004, Simon had his initial professional experience as a tax manager with a firm in Atlanta, Deloitte, and remained with them for two years until 2006. Then, in January 2007, he became the CEO of SIMCOL Group, as well as of its petroleum division.

In 2017, Simon opened the doors to his restaurant, Simon’s Restaurant, but the pandemic caused the eatery to be permanently shuttered in May 2020. Time and Buckhead Bottle Bar, which he owned before that, had already been closed in 2014.
His investment in the Bottle Bar was estimated at $3.8 million, an amount that became known after SIMCOL Restaurant Concepts filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. He has since announced that all creditors have been repaid and the Chapter 11 bankruptcy has been discharged.
Simon has come to the public’s attention after his wife, Falynn, joined the 13th season of Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) as a friend of Porshia Williams.

Gossip is rampant regarding problems between the couple. Notably, they do not follow each other on Instagram, and Simon chose to go on holiday alone. Although this is merely speculation, there is yet to be an official announcement of any separation.
Simon was the first to file for divorce in January 2021, citing an “irretrievably broken” marriage. The second time he filed was in February. Eventually, the two of them issued a joint statement on April 22nd that stated, “After five years of friendship and two years of marriage, Simon and I have decided to part ways.”
Just a month after meeting, Simon and Porsha Williams have decided to get engaged. On her Instagram post, Porsha explained that they have been blissfully in love since they started dating and chose to live in the moment without any negativity. As Porsha sees it, what matters most is that Simon makes her incredibly happy.
