Business Unit Manager – Enterprise
After nearly thirty years in the automotive industry, Steve brought his engineering and business development background and passion for technology to RAVE Computer in 2016.
For over ten years, Steve believed he was one of the luckiest automotive engineers on the planet, working on structural design and analysis on the Corvette engineering team. Then, when it came time to step out from behind the computer, he took a leap to the world of motorsports and was assigned as a Chassis Engineer on the Corvette Racing team. After being an integral member of that highly successful team for four years, Steve was promoted to Road Racing Group Manager for GM Racing. His responsibilities included not only Corvette Racing in the American Le Mans Series and 24 Hours of Le Mans, but also the Pontiac Racing efforts in the Grand Am Series and the Cadillac Racing team in SCCA World Challenge. Success continued as the teams won numerous championships and a total of five class wins at the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans throughout Steve’s tenure.
Following tough times in the automotive industry, Steve joined the non-profit organization, the XPRIZE Foundation, and was named Technical Director for the Progressive Insurance Automotive XPRIZE competition. The challenge was to find a vehicle capable of 100 miles per gallon (or energy equivalent) that could travel over 100 miles without stopping for re-fueling or re-charging. At the end of this competition for highly experimental vehicles, $10Million in prize money was awarded and most importantly, there were no safety incidents.
Steve then combined his engineering and managerial experience in the role of Business Development Manager for two automotive and motorsports suppliers – Cosworth and FEV.
With a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Michigan Technological University and a Master’s in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan, Steve can easily speak with the engineers on a technical level, but also has the ability to explain complex systems in terms everyone can understand.
Away from the office, Steve enjoys spending time with his teenage daughter or playing golf with his wife. If all this wasn’t enough, he once found time during the race season to appear on “Wheel of Fortune.”
