Steve graduated from Kingston University with a B.Eng (Hons) degree in Civil Engineering in the early 90’s, since then has built up qualifications in H+S, Project and Programme Management and financial management.
He has worked on range of engineering projects, which have included highway, water and sewage treatment, renewable power and more recently telecommunications and broadcast projects.
In his current role, Steve currently works as Principal Project Manager on a facilities management contract within a small team based in Winchester. The contract has been enabled to support over 16,000 assets in the UK, together with an annual budget of £7.8 million.
Most of Steve’s career has been behind the scenes, providing solutions and services that we all take for granted, for example: radio, digital tv, highways, removing our waste, provision of drinking water, and providing alternative power solutions.
Steve’s engineering, commercial, project, contract, H+S and finance background together with an attention to detail are qualities that he believes are of value to the Charity. This aligns with his main focus and interest which is the environment in which the Children and Staff work in.
Steve had an opportunity to become a Trustee a few years ago, the Charity is in a completely different sector to that of his own and he was extremely impressed when he first visited the School. Working in a commercially competitive environment is very different to that of the Charity, the position of Trustee allows Steve to see things from a different perspective.
On a personal level, Steve is married with 2 children and enjoys mountain biking, motorcycling and supports Chelsea FC.
