Stratfords specialises in looking after high-end clients, particularly from the Music Industry – Steve specifically looked after the late Jim Marshall (Marshalls Amplification) for some 12 years travelling all over the world with him as his executive driver. Stratfords has also had the pleasure in delivering services to other artists such as Slash, Motörhead (Lemmy), Gary Moore, Iron Maiden, Joe Bonamassa & Jim Hughes from Deep Purple.

Throughout his career, Steve has had a passion for charity and supporting those in need and harnessing the goodwill and passion from a lifetime of entertainment & music industry contact. In 2019, he and co-founder Jason Tudor, whom he met through a shared love of motorcycling, had the idea to create Ride2Give which launched as a registered charity in 2020.
