Steve Brown

Managing Director
Director responsible for overseeing the strategic development and management of C A Design Services and our associated companies.

For me it’s all about the team…
Because the terrific commitment from every member of the CADS team means we can deliver consistently high levels of service to our clients, and confidently develop the business.

A business transformation
Since I joined C A Design Services in 2002 our teams have worked hard to transform the business from a single small company into a wider enterprise comprising a range of professional services, operating in a range of market sectors, with great synergies and bags of potential to support and grow with our clients.

Collaborative working
I place a huge emphasis on this way of co-operative working, internally and with our clients. Forging such close and long-term working relationships means we can truly understand client needs and respond in the most effective way. This is reflected in the way we work every day, and is enjoyably illustrated when team members who have moved on, return to work with us as clients in their new roles.

Looking forward
Our principal objective over the next two years is to consolidate the CA Design Services’ market position and to build on existing synergies with our existing stakeholders. We will also increasingly focus on technology through our software team, and in partnering with external organisations to deliver truly joined-up and value-added services and solutions for our clients, particularly within the retail arena.

As I said, it’s all about the team
I’m looking forward to working with every member of the CADS team to deliver further opportunities and success to the business within the coming months and years.
