Steve Collard

General Manager

My name is Steve Collard and I am Managing Director of Taunton Rugby Club's main sponsor - Commsplus. I began his journey into Telecoms from an early age as an engineering apprentice for BT. Quickly realising the potential in the private Telecoms sector, I started C & H Communications with my close friend. C & H grew and grew over time and later merged into Commsplus. As Managing Director, I ensured that we stayed true to our roots, and Commsplus established itself in the heart of Weston super Mare, Somerset.

I has always been interested in sport. Playing waterpolo from a young age and taking my team up through the ranks was a great experience. In November 2011, I decided that Commsplus needed to explore more avenues for marketing. It was then that Jack Matthews, President of Taunton Rugby Club came to me with a proposition. After much deliberation I decided to join the group of generous sponsors at Taunton Rugby Club. It is a decision I have never looked back on.

I have also assumed a new role at the club as general manager. Something I am very proud of. I hope to bring my business skills to the club to ensure they stay financially strong and that they are able to support the local rugby community, from the Titans down to the youth.
