Having worked in the building industry for almost 30 years, Steve has a broad and comprehensive knowledge of the sector, as well as a wealth of industry experience.
From being ‘on the tools’ during the 80’s, Steve then joined an independent builders’ merchant in a sales role and rapidly became part of the Directors’ key team. Steve’s work contributed to the business ultimately being acquired by a National merchant chain.
Steve then went on to initiate a Joinery Distribution business, which after 3 years of exponential growth, was also acquired by a National merchant.
For the next several years Steve worked with global timber manufacturer JELD-WEN in a National Sales Development role, before moving to Ultraframe PLC for 9 years and progressing to UK Sales & Marketing Director. In 2011 Steve joined Crystal Direct, where he is currently Group Managing Director.
