Steve is often noted for being head and shoulders above his peers—and at 6’1”, this helps him on the basketball court, where he’s an avid competitor in his non-banking time. Steve is also host of the award-winning “Ask Steve” YouTube video series, yet another venue in which he offers his candid insights about issues that affect you and your business.
