It was a quick whispered conversation with a classmate that led to him choosing 'Estate Management' in a careers lesson to escape detention. But more than 30 years later, it was clearly the perfect career choice for him, offering the challenge and fulfilment he was seeking.

More about Steve

Outside work, Steve is either a petrol head or a car bore, depending on your perspective, and has driven the Nürburgring as well as been to Le Mans 15 times. He enjoys outdoor adventures, but these days he's swapped winter climbing in Scotland for taking his children camping and walking. And his hero? Sir Ranulph Fiennes, for his sheer determination and refusal to take no for an answer.
