    Joint Ventures

    Joint Ventures from The Dev Team One of the downfalls of working in IT is that everybody and his dog has an idea of how they're going to make a fortune with the Internet. They usually have no money to invest but they do know somebody in the industry who might listen. Sometimes they do listen....

The continuing evolution of the internet creates many business opportunities needing specialist IT skills.

That's where we fit in. We are a highly skilled collective who are more than a match for most blue chip companies internal IT departments.

We're here to make IT and the Internet work for you.

Stephen's Role at Denaploy

Stephen is Denaploy’s Managing Director, and as he likes to put it “Has been working at understanding how to make the Internet work for business.” After 30 years of doing just that, there isn’t much that Stephen hasn’t already done.

He gets a real kick out of discovering how to do things differently and overcoming the obstacles of making it work.  If that sometimes means ignoring the conventional wisdom of the time or taking a risk, then Steve is prepared to put his money where his mouth is and share the risk.

Stephen oversees all projects on both the IT and web development side of TheDevTeam, and the O&M manual for the construction industry.


Stephen combines wide senior management experience with a background in science and years of experience of implementing IT projects for SME companies. 

"I set up TheDevTeam because I believed (and still do) that the rapid evolution of IT technology was causing a significant disruption to traditional supply chain relationships and that opens opportunities for aggressive companies to carve out new areas of commercial advantage."

He offers a safe pair of hands that can combine the strategic commercial vision with the people skills and the mastery of technical detail necessary to deliver these projects.

Outside of work, Stephen enjoys the company of his 2 daughters, going to the Opera (especially the romantic ones) in London, playing table tennis, and watching great TV series such as The West Wing.

Prior to TheDevTeam

Stephen has always been torn between his passion for science and his natural business interests.  Having taken a Physics degree at Imperial College London and an MBA at the Manchester Business School, he followed a conventional career through ICI, Bell and Howell and the Expamet Group in various posts in Sales, International Marketing, Corporate Strategy, Operations Management and as Chief Executive. 

In 1990 he moved from London to St Leonards and joined Nik Askaroff in building EMC, and a new career in consultancy. Initially this was mainly in the area of financial trouble shooting and corporate turnaround. But the dramatic rise in the importance of IT in business success, created a natural opportunity for the combination of both strands of Stephen’s life.

Stephen’s unusual breadth of experience has given him an invaluable perspective on how to navigate these changes.  From the strategic vision of how to position the company or spotting tactical opportunities to create advantages, and then forcing through the detail of efficient implementation and project management of plans.


Master in Business Administration from Manchester Business School.

Physics Degree from Imperial College London.
