In the last 10 years he has helped to grow and develop Building Surveying teams within leading practices based in the Midlands. Stephen opened the Midlands office for Watts Group Plc developing a business from scratch in difficult trading conditions providing a turnover of circa £1/2m.

Over the last 4 years Stephen has dealt with the sale of Land Securities share in the Bullring and has recently completed a 25yr Planned Maintenance schedule for the onsite facilities team.
