Nathan started his career at PwC undertaking policy, commercial and economic analysis around energy and utilities markets.


Kevin Oakes oversaw the growth of overseas sales at world-renowned Stoke-on-Trent-based tableware manufacturer Steelite, resulting in exports making up almost 90 per cent of its £102m turnover. In 2016, he bought Royal Crown Derby with a plan to double turnover over five years to £10m, driven by exports.

Kevin, who is also president of the British Ceramic Confederation and a Stoke and Staffordshire LEP board member, has been working closely with government on a deal for the ceramic sector, to unlock the potential of the industry.
