Stephen Cox joins Stantec as Director of Economics and Regeneration


Stantec has appointed Stephen Cox as Director of Economics and Regeneration to strengthen its economics offering across all sectors, with a specific focus on regeneration, economic development, planning, transport and infrastructure.

Stephen has 30 years’ experience in his field and has worked extensively throughout the UK as well as Central Europe, the Caribbean, Middle East, South America and India. His previous roles have allowed him to establish teams and nurture talent to successfully produce strategies and business cases that secure opportunities for clients and communities in the UK and overseas.

Throughout his career, Stephen has worked on numerous major projects including the Tees Valley Transport Hydrogen Hub, business cases for five Indian mega-cities to address climate resilience, economic growth and social impact, led business cases worth billions for a range of UK public sector clients, and, in the last few years, he has overseen securing £330M for local authorities from the government’s Future High Streets Fund, Towns Fund and Levelling Up Fund.

On his appointment, Stephen commented: “I have received a very warm welcome at Stantec and look forward to working with my experienced team members on projects that improve communities and develop economies. The Levelling Up and Shared Prosperity agendas provide great opportunities for urban places in the UK and I want to help Stantec play its part in supporting the delivery of urban ambition.”

Bernard Greep, Planning Director, Stantec, and Manchester office lead, said: “I had the pleasure of working with Stephen when we joined the business on the same day 21 years ago, and am delighted that he has decided to rejoin us now. Stephen’s experience and skill-set will complement our well-established planning and economics teams and he will play a key role in delivering our substantial and growing portfolio of projects across all sectors.’

Based in Manchester, Stephen joins a national team that has already built successful business cases for high profile regeneration projects including securing £51.24 million through the Government’s recent rounds of funding for six local authorities and £90 million of funding for the Falkirk Grangemouth Investment Zone Growth Deal.
