Stephen joined the ranks of the Costa Foundation in March 2020 as a Costa Foundation Executive. In this role he works closely with the Costa Coffee store champions, plans fundraising events and helps to grow our platform through the power of social media. Before joining as an official member of the team Stephen worked in Costa stores, starting as a Barista and working up to a Store managers position and then began to build himself into an area managers role. Stephen is an avid fundraiser, always raising money through sponsored events for lots of different charities but it was the Costa Foundation that he worked closely with whilst running his store that really grabbed hold of him, enticing him into his career change.
