Image of Keith ShiversI was educated at King Edward VII School in Sheffield before commencing a career in property and construction, which has spanned nearly 40 years. I retired recently from my position as Regional Director for Vinci Construction UK Limited, responsible for their North East Building Region, and prior to that I spent nearly 30 years in various positions with the M J Gleeson Group, in later years progressing from Managing Director of the Scottish Construction Division, and Managing Director of their Northern Construction business to a National role finishing up as Group Operations Director, which involved me overseeing not only the construction side but the house building, facilities management and the property part of the business. I now have my own consultancy business providing services generally to clients in the Property and Construction sector.

I am a Member of the Chartered Institute of Building and previously have been a member of the Construction Industry Training Boards Yorkshire Committee, have been a Director of a charitable organisation, Professional Construction Skills, and have also been an elected member of the Sheffield Chamber of Commerce Council. I currently sit as a founder member of the Sheffield Local Enterprise Partnership’s Property and Construction Group and have, since retiring, been appointed to the University of Sheffield's Council's Estates Committee.

I live near Baslow with my wife and numerous animals, and my youngest daughter left Lady Manners in July to study at Newcastle University.

I enjoy cars, socialising and good food, and spend much of my spare time assisting my wife with her equine interests, generally maintaining the equestrian property where we live, and managing the small property portfolio that we have built up over the years.
