Stacey Hughes Associate Director
Stacey HughesAssociate DirectorIn her own words, Stacey is a self-confessed adrenaline junkie/couch potato in her spare time. A contradiction? Very much so. She gets her adrenaline fix from mountain biking and is often found at Cannock Chase, Forest of Dean or on a plane with her bike jetting off to tackle some drier trails. Conversely, she also hugely enjoys relaxing with some good home-made food and a boxset – particularly in the winter months.T. +44 (0)121 3336006 E. Stacey.firstname.lastname@example.org

He is mostly involved in research in areas related to small business, enterprise, skills and the labour market, at regional and national levels. In his spare time, he enjoys cinema, cooking (badly), and reading books and comics.T. +44 (0)121 3336006 E. Paul.email@example.com

Jack Harper Research Manager
Jack HarperResearch Manager
As a self confessed foodie Jack just can’t get enough of tasting little by little different dishes and cuisines. When not lost in a supermarket he substitutes his passion for cooking to watch Aston Villa, where he has had a season ticket for over 10 years, though some might say 10 years too long. Either way as a keen traveller Jack’s master plan is to someday go with the flow and travel all around the world. Now guess how many song titles feature in that.T. +44 (0)121 3336006 E.

Philip Roe Research Director
Philip RoeResearch Director
Philip is an experienced researcher with specialist interests including the economy, business, the labour market and skills. He has obtained three degrees from UK universities but so long ago that he can’t remember which ones. His theoretical role models are George Best, Joe Pesci in ‘Goodfellas’ and Lord Lucan. In practice, his main relaxation is sitting in a comfortable chair thinking about things (such as the limitations of the Theory of General Relativity, how much GDP growth would be stimulated by a cut in VAT to 15% and whether David Moyes was the right choice for Manchester United). In 2011 he won the Welcome Break award for most fried breakfasts eaten in motorway service stations.

Steve LomaxResearch Director
Steve studied Ancient History at University where he developed an unhealthy infatuation with ancient Greek chronology and could not see why the traditional order of major historical events needed to be accepted. A quarter of a century later his unhealthy obsession has transmitted itself to postcodes and SPSS files, and if you find the odd typo in one of his reports it is because his mind is still in Ancient Greece.
