Steve is a firm believer in the strength of the third sector and the often un-recognised but vital role it plays in so many people’s lives. Having been part of the small team which started Inspiring Scotland back in 2008, Steve has seen at close hand, the incredible work third sector organisations carry out.
Steve has held a number of roles related to project management and IT and currently leads on IT and Salesforce. Steve is responsible not just for keeping the organisation’s IT and our teams working, but also looking to use it in the best way we can to keep our grant-making up to date, quick and easy to use for applicants.

Outside of work Steve loves being outdoors exploring with his young son, walking, cycling and swimming. He is a lapsed amateur photographer who promises to one day find time to get back into it!
