ASSOCIATE ACCOUNT DIRECTOR
The resident office baker, Stephen Naylor is as good in the kitchen as he is at managing faith PR’s many accounts. After graduating with a degree in Politics and Law from Durham University, Stephen became a broadcast journalist in West Yorkshire, progressing to head of news before becoming a programme controller for a local radio station.
As a freelance broadcaster he went on to set up a community radio station in Hull, liaising with local groups, business organisations and commercial firms.
Joining the Conservative party in 2009, first as regional press and communications officer and then as senior communications officer, Stephen managed all the party’s press operation in the north of England during the 2010 election campaign.
Until 2013, Stephen was senior parliamentary assistant to the office of Julian Smith MP in North Yorkshire; the role saw him set up and manage the constituency office while being senior aide to a member of parliament.
Overseeing the delivery of projects, such as the development of broadband in North Yorkshire, Stephen later joined faith PR to act as Account Director. Today, he’s in charge of planning and strategy as well as the smooth running of several key accounts.
Stephen has faith in: his ability to create banana bread Mary Berry would be proud of.
