Background

About Steven

I'm a global entrepreneurial executive and operations leader who has consistently taken high-growth firms and early-stage startups to the next level. From identifying business opportunities to penetrating new markets, building brands, and enhancing business performance, companies have reached higher levels of success under my leadership.

I have founded and grown two international startups, generating 60% and 20% profit margins, penetrated international markets and branded a firm as the regional leader in IT security services, and turned around a lagging startup technology firm and sold the company generating 8-fold ROI for investors.

I know how to drive business success. In fact, as CEO of Vesta Group since 2001, my company has successfully incubated 30+ startups, leading to some very successful IPOs or buyouts, in both the hardware and software environments.
