Chief Operations Officer

Steve, a native of Chicago, started his career as a cashier at Home Depot. By the end of his first year, recognized for his organizational, financial and project management skills, he was tasked with managing the build-out of new big box stores across the country, which he continued to do for the next decade for both Home Depot and Lowe’s.

When Home Depot ownership changed, Steve was recruited to join a prominent retail marketing firm in Illinois as Director of Operations. Here, Steve ran the rebranding and build-out of new and remodeled stores, including Ace Hardware and Rite-Aid stores across the country.

After 15 years of constant travel, tight timelines and budgets, Steve decided to make a change as he had a young family. He moved to Colorado with his family and put his efforts into a marketing and printing company he purchased. He grew the business, and with large regional university and city accounts, became the preferred vendor for wrapping buses, branding auto fleets and producing branded apparel and promotional products.

With a calling to move back into project, budget and onsite management, he has joined the team here as Chief Operations Officer. Steve brings those exceptional skills to the implementation of each and every project the team designs.
