Working as a manager and producer in two different independent agencies (one belonging to his father-in-law!) has provided him with a practical understanding of agency internal operations, marketing and sales management, and how an agency can most effectively use technology. Over the years he has handled a full range of clients, specializing in the larger commercial accounts, and continues to maintain his license.
Steve received his Bachelor’s of Arts with a double major in business administration and economics from Taylor University and a Master’s Degree in Insurance Law from Antioch School of Law.
Steve was thrust into the insurance business when his father-in-law, a sole proprietor of an independent agency, became ill and needed help. He received his insurance training at a major insurance company as a commercial underwriter and after a short time joined his father-in-law’s agency. He carved his own niche by receiving post-graduate training in computers, sales training and the practical application of direct response marketing principles.
Steve is a prolific writer who is known for his knack for translating “geek speak” into easily understood concepts. He has written articles for virtually every industry publication. He is Dean of the School of Technology for the IIABA Virtual University and a member of the national faculty for the Society of Certified Insurance Counselors.
Because he fine-tunes his ideas in the real world agents are faced with, Steve is one of the industry’s top technology consultants and speakers. He provides keynote addresses, lectures, seminars, workshops, conference programs and individual agency and company consultations on how to maximize productivity and profits using practical technology.
