John Robson – Managing Director

John joined Aztec in 1999 as Managing Director of Aztec’s Exhibitions Division.

In 2005 John led a management buyout and in January 2006 he and other Directors bought the business. During this time, John also joined the board of the Event Services and Suppliers Association (ESSA).

John is always looking for new ways to improve standards within the event industry and his ethos centres around “doing things the right way.” Intolerant of poor service on any level, John’s mantra is echoed throughout Aztec.

Life outside work revolves around his young family and the (very) occasional game of golf!


Steve Colesell – Operations Director

Steve has been working in the events industry since 1990, starting his career as a technician, rising quickly through the ranks to an operational management role. Steve joined Aztec in 2000 and became Operations Director in 2006.

Much of his time is dedicated to ensuring that all staff around him are given 24/7 support. Although his role revolves around making things happen, he is very focussed on doing things the right way.

Steve is an ardent football fan and enjoys watching Fulham in his spare time.
