In addition to leading the agency, he is also an insurance educator and insurance industry technology expert. He serves the insurance industry in leadership positions on various national committees (ACT, ACORD, AUGIE and NetVU), often lecturing at insurance conferences around the country.

Steven’s client work is with the firm’s larger, more complex accounts. His strong, broad business and finance background provide him with the professional tools to be a trusted advisor and risk manager for clients in the Retail, Wholesale, Real Estate, Professional, Technology and Biotechnology sectors.

In 2016, Steven led negotiations with potential M&A partners, ultimately selecting private equity backed Acrisure LLC of Caledonia MI. One of the key reason he selected Acrisure was their commitment to leave local management in full operational control of the agency.
