Steve started building his business acumen from the ground up, within a small family import & export business in his hometown of Sutton Coldfield, with his Father and Brother. To gain a broader Managerial experience and training he made the move to a large international corporation in the automotive sector. Over a 10-year tenure, he developed teams within the West Midlands region to build relations in the B2B space, growing his business unit and managing full P&L responsibility for his region. Steve has since gained invaluable experience within a diverse variety of sectors from the Audio Visual & Events sector to Commercial Property, Finance Asset Leasing and SAAS solutions. In all these roles, Steve has exhibited a real passion for building relations and solving problems. He puts his success down to approaching each situation with an open mind as he appreciates each business is unique with unique challenges. By asking the right questions and getting to understand not only what a business wants to achieve but why they want to achieve it, enables him to deliver the best solution and outcome for his clients.
In Steve’s personal life, he has a close-knit family with his wife, two children and a very playful dog. Walks in the nearby Country Park are a daily event and weekends he can be found on the local bike trails or clocking up road miles through neighbouring towns and villages.
Looking after the West Midlands region for The FD Centre, Steve is focused on providing more than just a great part time FD/CFO for local businesses but also building lifelong business relations.
