About Stevan

Hi, I'm Stevan Jackson (linkedin.com/in/stevan-jackson). I didn't make the best of starts in life as an educational failure, homeless, jobless and with a criminal record. I turned that around by joining the Royal Navy at age 20, was commissioned as an Officer at age 28 and reached the rank of Captain after interesting and challenging posts at sea, abroad and ashore. Since then I've been a Board Chair, CEO and MD and a University Lecturer on leadership. I'm also an experienced Alpine & Himalayan Mountaineer with some notable ascents of some of the hardest routes on the worlds highest mountains. My aim now is to use this hard-won experience to help business leaders turn their mountains into molehills.

Group CEO

For 6 years I led a multi-disciplinary team of 685 staff & volunteers caring for people with progressive terminal illnesses in a complex business with an annual turnover of almost £8M. I chaired two subsidiary businesses that contributed significantly to the £3.5M needed annually to fund care services.
