Hi, I’m Steve
I am a business management consultant with more than 30 years experience, over 20 years of which have been in high-profile international roles.
Almost my entire career has been in the international Oil & Gas Industry so I am very comfortable operating in a fast-moving, highly pressurised, technically demanding, safety-driven environment.
In the first significant step onto my career ladder, I spent 12 years at one of the worlds leading process equipment manufacturers. Beginning as a Project Engineer in 1989 in the UK before taking up my first international assignment in Sydney as Project Manager for the Australasia region.
I subsequently won promotion to the role of Asia Pacific Regional Marketing Manager based in Malaysia and then Indonesia.
I worked as a consultant for 3 years from 2001 to 2004 during which time I founded a successful new Indonesian environmental services start-up, quickly building a $5.5 million annual revenue within 2 years.
In 2004 I was hired by a Fortune 500 oil & gas services company, with annual revenue of $40billion, to be based in Dubai as Global Business Line Manager, tasked with starting up a new business unit.
I then moved to progressively more influential leadership positions, first as Regional Business Manager for Europe and Africa in 2010 with ownership of a $400million P&L and 700 staff operating in 34 countries.
A promotion to the USA headquarters followed in 2013, to the position of Global Marketing and Technology Manager, and subsequently to Director of Global Marketing and Communications.
I’m originally from South Wales in the UK.
