Stephen was previously with Mivan (ex-Regency Marine) since 1991 initially as a Senior Estimator followed by a role in business development/marketing/overseeing the projects managers who carried out the refurbishments during dry dock to ensure customer satisfaction, repeat business and generate new turnover.  The business was transformed by Stephen from the refurbishment of UK ferries to the international interior fit out of new build cruise ships and refurbishment of existing cruise vessels to more recently breaking into the fit out of super yachts prior to joining McCue.

Over the last 23 years Stephen has built a knowledge of IMO Regulations and Classification Authority requirements plus the experience of what goes together to make a successful refit materialise. This experience has covered both hands-on and management of enquiry generation, estimating, contract negotiation, procurement, design development, prefabrication, planning, logistics and overseeing project managers at Director level to final project/account handover ensuring complete customer satisfaction.

Over the last 20 years Stephen Mills has built a network of relationships with cruise lines, shipyards, suppliers, subcontractors and labour to ensure projects are delivered on time and to budget. Geographically a working knowledge of markets covers Europe, North America, Bahamas, Asia and Australia. Individual project values ranging from £100,000 to £5,000,000.
