Resident of Hebden Bridge, the unofficial capital of the north, Steve has thirty years of experience in politics and public affairs during which his passion for rebalancing the economy has been to the fore. He has worked in Westminster – first for the MP for Halifax and then for a succession of senior women MPs – and also in Wigan – where he was Director of Strategy or the North West Leaders Board, a role which led him to be a member of the Northern Way Taskforce, a predecessor to the Northern Powerhouse.
Steve brings rigorous policy analysis as well as a wealth of regional experience to DevoConnect’s clients.
