Archie Simmonds


Archie became involved with Special Olympics at the beginning of 2018 as an administration support officer. Prior to that he attained a Bachelor’s degree in Design Innovation, for which he strived to achieve by his passion for film, post-production, graphic design and gaming.


Towards the end of 2017, Archie was approached by our former Chief Executive Officer for a fantastic opportunity to be part of our team, to put the skills he picked up from his degree to a new test. He is always up for assisting those less fortunate than himself, and was stoked to be getting back into the workforce, particularly for our organisation.


Born in the UK and brought up in New Zealand, Archie is a proud supporter of England and the All Blacks. Like most kiwis, he values the outdoors and likes to spend his free time playing golf (not competitively), travelling or glued to the PS4 (depending on the weather). He is a self-declared lover of music and his favourite groups are Royal Blood and Alt-J. Archie’s motto is ‘Losers Let It Happen, Winners Make It Happen.’ He came to Special Olympics to give each and every one of our athletes an opportunity to become ‘winners.’
