Steven Middeldorp - CEO

With over 38 years in the IT industry in a range of senior management positions in Investment Banking, Legal, Consulting Services and Manufacturing organizations, Steven brings understanding and hard earned experience in the commercial side of running an IT business. 


He established the ClearCost business in 2001 on the belief that all IT groups needed to behave commercially if they were to survive and contribute to the organizational objectives for success. This translated into a business model that integrated Financial Management with Service Management in a way that both IT and the Business understood. Steven is a regular speaker at regional and international conferences on the subject.


Steven maintains it is clients who have made the business the success it is. Their contribution to the development of ClearCost and its methodology has ensured the business can deliver what IT groups need today and tomorrow.
