Steve gained his status as MRICS in 2001, initially practising in the West Midlands as a valuation surveyor, and is now a Senior Surveying Quality Manager for e.surv, the largest firm of residential surveyors in the UK.
Currently he supports RICS professionally on several working groups but is most proud of his time spent supporting LionHeart and its mental health programme the John O’Halloran Initiative. Outside of work, following Wolverhampton Wanderers and travelling occupy most of his time.
Working in the industry through the tough times of redundancy threats led to some issues with anxiety. At the age of 37 (and still attempting to regularly run and play football…), Steve was diagnosed with cancer of the throat in 2014, but was soon back in work after treatment. He says having had such great support through his issues with anxiety and also through his cancer battle, he would like to give something back by supporting others.
