Steve Ellis is the CEO of St Petrocs, a charity that helps the homeless in Cornwall and aims to eliminate street homelessness entirely in the county.
Ellis has spent more than 30 years working in local government to deliver homelessness and housing support initiatives. He was a key part of an urban regeneration programme in his home city through the 1980s and 1990s.
After some time in the private sector, Ellis joined St Petrocs in 1999, where he has developed the charity's service provision to support those who have nowhere else to turn.
In June 2020, he appeared on a Leaders Council of Great Britain & Northern Ireland podcast, discussing leadership and the affect it has had on his career to date.
