CapEQ M&A Team

Our master of marketing, Steve understands the sophistication of strategy, the dark arts of branding, the data behind digital and that PR is far more than an upsetting medical term. He joined us in 2021, adding highly relevant capabilities across M&A and consultancy marketing, built upon the foundations of an early career in journalism.

Steve’s a rare beast, able to translate jargon and abstruse financial concepts into plain English. It’s already made him a favourite with CapEQ clients wanting to buy, sell or grow companies, but also to understand exactly what we do, how we help and where we make things happen. He’s also a dab hand at sharing best practice, M&A market updates and marketing expertise across our international network – particularly with partners in Europe, Africa and Australia.

Married, with three expensive teens, Steve is a keen supporter of local food, conservation and similar projects which build resilience into local communities. When you next see him, ask him one or more of the following questions:

  • Who were ‘Lee Delamere & The Welcome Breaks’?
  • Cameron, May or Johnson: who impressed you most (he’s interviewed them all)?
  • As a Man City fan, how do you feel about your ancestors founding Man United?
  • Why and how does your dog think it’s a cat?
