About this event

Steve is Chief Executive of Scottish Canals, a public corporation established to maximise the social, economic and environmental benefits of an essential part of Scotland’s industrial heritage – its 250-year-old inland waterways.

Since joining the organisation a decade ago, Steve has guided Scottish Canals to make an increasingly significant contribution to Scotland’s economy, with transformational regeneration projects in key locations across Scotland’s diverse canal system.

Most recently the £43m Helix development has transformed 350 hectares of underused land on the eastern end of the Forth & Clyde Canal near Grangemouth into a vibrant new parkland, canal hub and world-class visitor attraction featuring the biggest pair of equine sculptures on the planet – The Kelpies.

Steve is a leading public sector entrepreneur and is at the forefront of public sector leadership & reform.

Before joining Scottish Canals, Steve was Director of Regeneration for Newcastle City Council and, prior to that, held a Directorship at Falkirk Council.

He is currently a member of the VisitScotland Board.
