Stephen Whitehead

Chief Communications Officer


I was raised in Yorkshire, I’m half Canadian, and I’ve also spent time living and working in Australia.

Home for me just now is London, where I live with my husband Rob and our pet cockapoo, Pops. Since joining Standard Life Aberdeen in 2019, it means that I spend a lot of time in Edinburgh too.

I’ve worked in leadership roles for a number of international organisations, in industries ranging from financial services to pharmaceuticals. I’ve had a specific focus on communications and reputation management during my career – and so something I’ve always really valued is being able to draw on a diverse set of views, experiences and backgrounds to help get things right.

It’s great to be working for a company that values diversity and inclusion in the same way. Let’s hope we can encourage more in our industry to see the benefits that it can bring.
