Stephen Gaffney


Having recently joined Quickstep in October 2021, Stephen leads the financial, commercial, IT and Business Intelligence functions and brings with him a passion for delivering innovative and best practice solutions.

A seasoned executive

Stephen has over 20 years of professional and commercial accounting experience spanning pharmaceutical, aviation, manufacturing, cement, and mining & metals industries.

He has worked both domestically and internationally, in both privately listed and public companies, interacting closely with the breadth of regulatory, financial and government bodies.

Stephen has extensive experience in equity and capital raising, commercialisation strategies (both vendor and purchaser orientated), financing, business planning, corporate governance, management, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and transformational change projects.

Love of manufacturing

“I love seeing engineering, design, supply and operational areas (and not forgetting the support functions) produce a world class product which an organisation, its team and Australia can be proud off.  Seeing the combined result from harnessing the talents of our highly skilled workforce is all the motivation that I require”.

Stephen’s passion is for people and seeing them fulfil their potential, whilst pushing the boundaries in striving for higher goals – “if I can contribute to their journey then I am well pleased in the day”.

Realising Quickstep’s potential

Quickstep is very process driven so achieving set goals is important to our culture. “We like to push ourselves further to see what can be accomplished. Achieving our goals is very motivating. Agreeing on our aspirations, determining how to get there and achieving those goals is a fantastic feeling. It’s a tangible way to measure our success.”

Bonus skill

With a passion for cricket, Stephen will regularly been seen either umpiring, scoring or patrolling the boundary rope as his children play the game on the weekend.
