I equate business to coaching a football team in my role as AccuQuilt’s CEO, aka Chief Energizing Officer. My favorite sayings are “Head West!”, “Where's the puck?” and “It's only creative if it sells.” My team is familiar with other ‘Steve-isms’ such as “since Hector was a pup” and “the customer is king.”
Though I received my mechanical engineering degree from Iowa State, MBA from Kansas University and YPO Executive MBA from Harvard Business School, I’m a Nebraska Cornhusker who loves GO BIG RED football.
I married my high school sweetheart and have the two greatest kids on earth and one in Heaven. I’m happiest in the great outdoors racing Ironman Triathlons, hunting with our two black labs, or traveling with family.
I am blessed with a great team and customers who challenge us to be the best. Thank you all for your support and for pushing AccuQuilt to continuously move forward and always ‘Head West!’
