After three years with General Electric, Steve realized his destiny was to own his own business and work with people and their finances.
Steve began his career as a financial advisor with Principal Securities in 1993. In 2000, Navigators Financial was founded, moving his office to Royal Oak at the same time. “For the past 25 years, this industry has allowed me to help my clients achieve their visions while also assisting me to become a better father, husband and person,” he said.
“Much of my practice focuses on using a consultative approach to assist independent women and families with financial and retirement planning,” Steve said. “Our process, Navigating Your Financial Life, is used to allow clients to envision and pursue a life of significance with less financial stress.”
Steve majored in both Marketing and Management, graduating Cum Laude with a BSBA degree from Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, in 1989.
Steve is a volunteer for Shrine Catholic High School & Academy and a parishioner of the National Shrine of the Little Flower Basilica. He is also a member and former board member of the Detroit Yacht Club, member and former board member of the Greater Royal Oak Chamber of Commerce, Qualifying and Life member of the Million Dollar Round Table – Court of the Table, and 20-year member of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA).
Originally from Westland, Michigan, Steve and his family are long-time residents of Royal Oak. He enjoys golf, travel, tennis, and spending time with his family along with taking time to ski, sail, play guitar, and read.
