For 30 years, Steve wanted to have a hi-fi shop, and in 2020 he finally achieved his dream, with quite a bit of help from his wife, children and other family members. Listen Audio is very much a ‘family business’.
More about Steve’s dream
During his teenage years, Steve developed a passion for hi-fi. He worked hard at his education, qualified as an accountant, and was able to buy a system that he wanted. As his career progressed, he got a job as an accountant at Bowers & Wilkins and his favourite perk was being able to borrow stock from their ‘loudspeaker library’.
In 1999, Steve married Deborah, a Shropshire farmer’s daughter, and in 2006 they decided to move back up to this beautiful county so their kids could spend more time with their grandparents.
Steve worked for a well-known local food storage and transport company and was promoted to Finance Director. However, as time has gone by, Steve and Deborah found themselves re-evaluating life and discussing Steve’s long-held hi-fi shop dream, and decided to make it a reality.
So, after leaving the corporate world, Listen Audio was born and Steve is now living his dream!
