Steve had a long and active career with BT, starting as an engineering apprentice in Crewe. He worked his way up into management, and over the years through to a number of senior management positions before leaving the company in 2017. He attended college in Staffordshire and had an office in Hanley, even though his work travels took him right across the UK. He has extensive experience leading and managing large teams of people and the associated budget responsibilities too, including leading on business continuity and health & safety requirements. He was also a business mentor with The Princes Trust, supporting young people set up new businesses.
After leaving BT, Steve set up a successful business consultancy and is active with a number of clients supporting and driving their own business development plans.
Steve lives in Nantwich, and is married with two grown up sons. He is keen to help the Trust support all the schools in its community to develop and flourish and secure the very best outcomes for all of its learners.
