Biography

Steve has over 15 years in FMCG Sales and Marketing with Unilever and over 6 years running, nurturing and developing small businesses.

His career started as a Unilever graduate, where he worked in FMCG Sales and Marketing for ten years. He spent the first seven years client side and the next three as a Senior Brand Manager for Unilever’s many hair care brands.

And then, a surprise twist. Steve left the corporate world behind to follow his childhood dream and run a sports club: Rosslyn Park FC. As a regular first team player, he saw the chance to create a small business with his beloved club, while building his own sports coaching business at the same time.

After four years as General Manager at RPFC, Steve did another u-turn and rejoined Unilever again, first managing their business with Asda, then heading up their Out of Home Ice Cream Sales Team – a role with a much more entrepreneurial edge.

It was then, having developed a taste for nurturing small businesses, that Steve made the leap into the world pressed fruit and joined Cawston Press as Managing Director. Two years on, Steve’s still smitten, ready to take on the drinks industry and set for the challenge to give fizzy a good name once again.
