Steve Barker

Senior Project Manager

Steve joined Gladman as a Project Manager in the strategic land team in May 2014. His role includes ensuring sites are deliverable, controlling budgets and the appointment and co-ordination of multi-disciplinary teams to prepare planning submissions. He has experience of planning inquiries but prefers to get applications approved locally.
Steve has over 25 years’ professional experience, starting as an Architectural Technologist before moving into a Housing Association Development Manager role where he put together the first formal Joint Venture in the UK between a Local Authority and a Registered Social Landlord to deliver affordable homes. Immediately prior to joining Gladman he was a Project Manager for Coventry City Council delivering the Olympics sporting legacy aimed at inspiring a sporting city.
Steve is a lifelong Stoke City supporter, enjoys spending time with his family and weekends raising money for charity wearing one of the many screen-accurate Star Wars costumes he’s built.
