Stephen Grant Founder and Chairman
A seasoned entrepreneur, Stephen has established a series of successful consultancies including Cititec Talent and Excelian (sold to Luxoft). He is also a founder and proud trustee of Code Your Future, a non-profit organisation that prepares people from underprivileged backgrounds for a career in tech. As if that wasn’t enough, Stephen also finds time to invest in tech start-ups.
Going back a bit, Stephen worked as a journalist and General Manager of the British Chamber of Commerce in Mexico where he attended too many of the Ambassador’s cocktail parties and rubbed shoulders with the likes of Elton John and Mick Jagger. He even mistakenly sold the restaurant and bar space in a British trade exhibition to the son of a mafia kingpin, but we don’t need to go there!
When not helping Cititec transition and grow, Stephen enjoys listening to Reggae Artist, Damian Marley, reading books by Michel Houellebecq, hanging out with friends and family, and listening to BBC Radio 4.
