Steve has been one of the leaders in consulting to professional firms for more than a two decades. Having worked originally for Deloitte and PwC, Steve was one of three founders of
Gracechurch Consulting in 2001. Since then, he has advised many of the world’s leading firms, including: Aldar, Allen & Overy, Baker & McKenzie, BNY Melon, Clifford Chance, DTZ, EY, Grant Thornton, Grosvenor, Hogan Lovells, Linklaters, PwC as well as many leading businesses in their own countries.
Firms in fast changing markets are always looking to their future: formulating growth strategies, looking for mergers or alliances; and planning for the changes in organisation and culture which such ambitions demand. Steve’s role is to facilitate that process – based on robust research, analysis of financial performance, market intelligence and client feedback he and his colleagues help our clients plan and manage the way forward.
After Gracechurch, Steve and a team of experienced consultants formed Redstone to provide management consultancy to service organisations in all parts of the world. He is the firm’s Managing Director.
Steve has advised clients in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the US and Asia. Most recently he has been helping a number of global firms with their strategies for Africa and some African firms with their response to the internationalisation of their markets. Steve is the author of African and International Law Firms – Friends or Foes (2015).
Steve has first degrees in Chemistry and in Theology and an MBA from Henley. He is a faculty member of the Lawyers Management Program at IE Business School and a visiting lecturer at Henley. He is a judge for the annual Managing Partner Awards. He speaks on webinars and widely at conferences around the world on developing strategy and making it a success.
