Steve Rowan is the CFO of RPC. His career began after qualifying as a Chartered Accountant with Touche Ross & Co (now Deloitte) in London before moving initially to a small merchant bank where he acted as the FD's financial projects resource.
He followed that FD to Dentons just over a year later and then spent the next 11 years working first in financial projects and then progressed to Financial Controller. In 2000, he became Deputy Finance Director of Denton Wilde Sapte on that merger before joining DJ Freeman as Finance Director in late 2002.
Steve had a leading role in the re-organisation of DJF into Insurance/Commercial Litigation specialist Kendall Freeman a few months later and then in 2008 again played a leading finance and administrative role in the merger of KF with US firm Edwards Angell Palmer & Dodge.
Steve remained Director of Finance & Administration, concentrating initially on the merger integration and finance & administrative affairs relating to the UK & Asia but always retained strong connections with the US and became Deputy COO of the whole firm in 2012 concentrating on BD, marketing & communications. Steve joined RPC as Chief Financial Officer in late 2015 and enjoys a wide finance-oriented role both in the UK & internationally. He sits on the firm's Board.
Away from work, he is married with 2 sons and is very keen on sports (particularly football, cricket & cycling) and reading biographies.
