Moving on to become MD of LWT in 1994, he doubled the company’s profits in two years, and acquired ITV’s major producer-broadcasters; LWT, Yorkshire and United – all of whom thrived and grew under his leadership.

Becoming Chief Executive of Granada Media in 1996, Steve was then appointed the Chief Executive in the IPO and eventually the Chief Executive of Granada plc in 2001.

Steve’s plaudits include an RTS award for World In Action; a BAFTA for 28-Up; two Oscars for My Left Foot; an Oscar nomination for The Field and adulation for British Comedy classic Jack and Sarah. Granada shows such as Cracker, Prime Suspect and Cold Feet placed the company at the heart of British entertainment.

Steve’s creation of overseas projects includes setting up companies in Hong Kong, New York, Los Angeles, Germany and Australia.

In 2002 Steve took leave of Granada to bring together the UK’s leading Independent TV Producers to form ALL3MEDIA, now Britain’s largest Independent TV production Group.

Steve has chaired a Government Task Force on e-learning, and has served on the founding Board of Teachers TV. He has also been a Governor and Non-Executive Director at the British Film Institute, British Screen, British Film Commission and the National Film and Television School, and was Chairman of Vision and Media, the cluster organisation for the creative industries in the North West of England.

In 2015 Steve was confirmed as Rector of Edinburgh University.
