Steve is a consultant with over 30 years’ experience of direct marketing, recurring revenues, ecommerce and senior management within the media and publishing sectors.
His passion for the Heart of England Forest stems from growing up in Solihull and spending many weekends in the surrounding area. This love of the countryside was also fuelled by numerous holidays with grandparents in mid-Wales, walking in the woods, picking wild fruit and visiting relations on working farms.
With a degree in Environmental Studies, Steve’s original plan was to work in conservation, but circumstances led to a career in marketing, culminating with 10 years at Dennis Publishing, where he worked for Felix Dennis. Having seen the passion and drive behind the early years of the charity, Steve now aims to use his experience to help ensure that the Forest goals are achieved for all.
“I believe that the Forest is something of real value for everyone now, but, most importantly, for future generations locally and nationally.”
Steve was appointed onto the Heart of England Forest Board in February 2018.
