He was also responsible for a fleet of 18 trucks and managing their daily routes, logistics, and all preventative maintenance. With this, he implemented an internal Fleet Management program to control costs and analyze areas of inefficiencies.

In 1996, Apple Appliance, Inc. was acquired by Tri County Installations, Inc, which was in the same industry and experiencing tremendous growth. Steve was given the role and duties of Vice President. Under his management, Tri County Installations, Inc. saw double digit year over year growth, and in 2004 expanded operations into the Atlanta, GA metro area, where the company continued to experience rapid expansion.

In addition to tending to the business at TCI, Steve values his free time with his kids. His son plays travel Ice Hockey, his daughter is involved with gymnastics, and the three of them are avid snowboarders.

Steve thoroughly enjoys the business and the day to day activities, and wouldn’t change a thing. When asked, he states “I’ve always enjoyed the challenge of creating something from nothing and watching it grow.” He then adds, “The vehicle manufacturing as well as the finance and leasing business is something that I never realized I had an affinity for until I learned the industry. Now, I love it, I enjoy my job and I look forward to Mondays. It never feels like I’m going to work.”
