Professor Steven Broomhead
Chief Executive, Warrington Borough Council
Steven Broomhead is committed to helping people live their best lives. The Chief Executive for Warrington Borough Council leads local government activity across a wide range of areas to do just that, from building new schools to improving leisure centres and opening Port Warrington – a new centre of trade and commerce on Warrington Waterfront.
Steven admits success in local government demands resourcefulness and that’s what he thrives on: “I find motivation in the need to do more with less and think continuously about how to manage opportunity and risk.”
When asked for the advice he’d hand down to his younger self, Steven says: “Take time to sniff the flowers rather than always trying to re-arrange them.”
