Stephen is primarily responsible for our corporate finance and treasury functions, together with legal structuring and also sits on our credit committee. Additionally he manages a number of our loans, primarily in the hotel and student accommodation sectors. This variety involves him in all aspects of what we do, with no two days the same and no time for boredom!
Stephen has been involved in property since he qualified as a Chartered Accountant. Initially he was finance director for a property development company, then in 1998 joined Southern as a broker and in 2006 he was appointed a director of our parent company. Since then he has focused on the development of ABC into the short term lender we are today.
At weekends his second job is as taxi driver to his three children and occasional linesman at his son’s football matches. When there is time to relax he swims, goes to the gym (occasionally) and reads.
