Steffan Jones

Shaping Portsmouth is pleased to welcome Steffan Jones, who has joined the team as our new Events Lead. Our thanks to Rozina Mehta of RMC Service for her support in filling this role.

Steff grew up in Wales but has called Portsmouth ‘Home’ for the past two decades. He has a 20 year background in Events and Hospitality management in the city since originally moving here for his Degree in 1999.

He said “I’m really looking forward to the opportunity to work with this small, but driven and passionate team. I’ve seen so many positive changes in the City over my twenty or so years here and I’m really excited to continue to play a part in driving this great city forward.

Steff is a keen cyclist and can often be found out and about on the roads, trails and gravel of the South Coast and further afield.

Sam McGrath, Director of Operations & Marketing at Shaping Portsmouth, said “I feel extremely honoured and privileged to now have Steffan as part of our expanding team. He brings a wealth of events experience and skills.
Like so many of us, Steffan has a lot of passion in transforming our city and he has hit the ground running! We are all looking forward to planning and delivering the rest of our 2023 events schedule with Steffan leading the way and bringing a new energy.”

His experience, energy and passion for Portsmouth make him the perfect person for this fantastic new role. I’m excited to see how our events programme grows and evolves moving forward, and look forward to supporting him on this journey.”
