In addition to his role as REDW’s Managing Principal, Steve is an enthusiastic public champion who also serves some of the firm’s largest internal audit, nonprofit and healthcare clients. His career as an auditor led him to become one of the Southwest’s top technical experts on internal audit, fraud prevention and investigation, and risk management.
Steve merges his strong technical expertise and dedicated client service with the leadership skills required to guide a top-level financial services team. Today, he is driving REDW toward the integration of technology, business acumen, and forward-thinking strategy to help the firm meet the growing demand for highly specialized accounting and financial services. With a focus on conversational capacity, Steve is helping to re-engage team members through new and exciting ways to share ideas and gain client insight. He views REDW, the firm he and so many others helped shape and expand, as something unique in the markets it serves – an unusually diverse blend of professionals and service lines which can meaningfully assist clients across a wide spectrum of complex financial and business advisory needs.
As REDW increases in size and geographic reach, Steve is poised to build on the firm’s already strong reputation for integrity and technical expertise by making sure the compassionate side of the business flourishes as well. Steve has been an integral part of some of the largest community-oriented projects REDW has tackled for clients in recent years, including helping Native American Tribes transition from Indian Health Services to run their own healthcare facilities.
Steve joined REDW in 1992 after several years of audit experience with a national firm.
