Steve has over 30 years experience in the cinema industry. He joined AMC in 1987 and pioneered multiplex operations in the United Kingdom, with the first ever purpose built multiplex opening in Europe in 1985 which saw a step-change for the industry.
His positions included Operations Director and Managing Director of the UK business during a time when AMC was acquired by Paramount Pictures and Universal Studios and renamed United Cinemas International (UCI) in 1989.
In 1999 Steve became Senior Vice President of Northern Europe for UCI, overseeing operations in more mature markets such as the UK, Ireland and Germany, alongside emerging markets – Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary.
Steve left UCI in 2003 to join Vue International as COO where he continues to be instrumental in the day-to-day operations of the business working alongside Tim and Alison.
Steve was the first cinema exhibition executive to be appointed to the Board of the prestigious UK Film Council from 2002 to 2010. He was, until recently, on the Executive Board of the UK Cinema Exhibitors Association.
In 2017 Steve was awarded the Exhibition Achievement Award, sponsored by the UK Cinema Association.
