Get to know Steve…


We had a chat with Steve to find out what makes him tick.

Q: What is your favourite way to start the day?
I can’t start the day without my scrambled eggs!

Q: When we can travel again, where would your next holiday destination be?
Right now it would be Guernsey to see my family but then somewhere warm and windy as I love my windsurfing.

Q: What is your favourite beverage on a hot summer’s day?
Always a cold Diet Coke! (slight addiction)

Q: Who do you admire and why?
My close family for getting everything they have through hard work, my daughters and all of the team at Alexander Daniels Offshore.

Q: What is your proudest achievement?
My two girls.

Q: What is your favourite way to unwind?
A good run at the end of a working day always clears my head or if I have more time and its windy, Windsurfing.

Q: When people come to you for help, what do they usually want help with?
Anything and everything really. It has been one of the larger parts of my job as a manager and as a father, but that often used to involve money ha!

Q: Aside from necessities, what one thing could you not go a day without?
Diet Coke!

Q: What would you do if you won the lottery?
Travel more.

Q: How did you stay motivated during lockdown?
I exercised a lot and I actually got in pretty good shape!

Q: What is your claim to fame?
Nowadays it’s probably more that I’m now the father of someone famous!

Q: If you had a warning label, what would yours say?
Do not engage in conversation, you may be here a while!

Q: What hobby would you get into if time and money were not an issue?
I am a keen windsurfer and although I wouldn’t say you can ever completely master this, there are many more moves I would like to get much better at!

Q: If you could move to any city, which would it be?
Likely somewhere such as L.A. as it’s warm all year round and you have surf but also mountains not far away for skiing. I do love London though, it’s so much fun with so many different things always happening.

Q: What is your favourite thing about working at Alexander Daniels?
It’s always been about the people and the journey for me, watching and helping both the people and business grow.

Q: What would you like to accomplish in the next 5 years?
To see how far we can take the Alexander Daniels business.

Q: What are three interesting facts about you?
I used to be an accountant (ah, you said interesting!) I drink more Diet Coke than anyone I have ever known, oh and burgers! I love burgers!
