Mark Masons' Hall, 86 St. James’s Street, London

Stephen Schofield

Stephen was born in Reading, Berkshire in 1970 and had a very normal, nondescript childhood. He went to the University of Southampton in 1988 and read both Chemistry and Mathematics as double Degrees, obtaining First Class Honours in each, before deciding that he wasn’t ready to start working yet, so stayed on for a further three years to complete a PhD in Organic Chemistry.

In 1995, Stephen started work at Procter & Gamble as a research scientist and became Principal Scientist there in 2014, having developed and patented an assortment of hair products (believe it or not). A couple of years later, he transferred to another Beauty company, Coty, where he is currently Director of IP Innovation. Colleagues state that he knows just enough about Intellectual Property to make him dangerous, although as he works from home, no one really knows what he gets up to!

Stephen was Raised in 2003 at University of Southampton Lodge and was Advanced into Hibernia Mark Lodge in 2015, having been Exalted and occupied the Chairs in Goliath Chapter in the meantime. He is also a member of RAM, AMD, RSM and the Operatives and in 2022, thanks in part to the influence of COVID, he was in six Chairs simultaneously.

Outside of Freemasonry, Stephen is about to join the Board of Governors of his daughter’s new primary school and has previously conducted fun & exciting science experiments (you know, the ones that explode or go bang) at her Preschool. Hobbies include walking (hitting 40 miles a week), listening to very loud and heavy music, and occasionally reading something other than ritual. Historically, Stephen practiced Hung Leng Kuen Kung Fu and was actually rather good at it.
