Stephen is the Chief Executive of Faber & Faber Ltd. Founded in 1929 Faber & Faber is an independent publishing house based in London and remains one of the world’s leading literary publishers.

Previously Stephen held roles at HarperCollins Publishers and 4th Estate Ltd. In his twenties, Stephen says, “I tried becoming a successful rock musician with a band from my home town in the Midlands. An instructive and blessed failure!”
