IoD Liverpool | An Audience with Steve Rotheram, Liverpool Metro Mayor

10 Sep 2019
Rathbone Investment Management, Liverpool

IoD Liverpool invites you to join us for an audience with Steve Rotheram, Metro Mayor of Liverpool City Region.

In his earlier career, Steve served as a Liverpool City Councillor in 2002 to represent the Fazakerley ward and also as Lord Mayor of Liverpool during the city's European Capital of Culture year of 2008-2009.

In 2010, Steve was elected as the Member of Parliament for the Liverpool Walton constituency. A bricklayer by trade, he'd set up his own company by the age of 22 and later went on to work in various capacities in the construction industry.

Having pursued qualifications through FE College, he studied full-time at Liverpool John Moores University and started a Master’s Degree in Contemporary Urban Renaissance at Hope University. During this time he was employed as a Business Manager by the Learning and Skills Council.

In May 2017, Steve was elected to become the first ever Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region – securing 59% of the vote – on a manifesto that is ambitious, fair, green, connected and that works together.

David Wafer, Managing Director of McIver Scott Recruitment will be interviewing Steve. They will discuss his career journey, including the highs and lows, the challenges faced along the way and plans for the future of Liverpool City Region.
