Steve Young

Steve Young Automotive ConsultantSteve is a highly experienced international automotive executive, who has split his career equally between line management and consulting / entreprenurial roles, working in most parts of the world.  He was CEO of LDV Group, the specialist light commercial vehicle producer, and a Director of GAZ International, responsible for evaluation of strategic growth opportunities for GAZ Group outside the CIS.  He  left the company before GAZ was affected by financial difficulties and the collapse of LDV, and is now Managing Director of the International Car Distribution Programme, as well as continuing to provide automotive consultancy and act as a non-executive director through IndeGo Consulting.
Through the breadth of his career over more than 30 years, Steve has gained a unique perspective into the global automotive industry.  He is able to view issues from a strategic perspective, but also understands the challenges of day to day executive management.  Having worked along all parts of the automotive value chain, he understands the different challenges faced by each party, and how to respond to those challenges.  He is also able to bring perspectives from outside the auto industry where these may be useful in challenging pre-conceptions and blinkered thinking.
